There’s no adventure like yours! Whether you’re spooling up for scout camp, a bike packing trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway, or traveling around the world, Jesse Brown’s is the first point on the map. A handful of clothes and a toothbrush will get you to grandma’s for the weekend, but even the most dreamlike destination can be ruined by a poorly packed bag.
Adventures of any size and scope can be bettered with a few wise choices in clothing, gear and luggage. From hikes up Kilimanjaro to trips down to the beach, Jesse Brown’s Outdoors is Charlotte’s source for the right stuff. Hey, you can’t control the weather, but you can make like a Boy Scout and be prepared – without hauling along your entire closet! Luggage and bags from Filson and The North Face will keep you organized on-the-go, with smart details, timeless character, and construction meant to outlast the elements – and baggage check. Packs from Osprey, Deuter, and Kelty will help you shoulder the load over the river and through the woods, or around campus and back again.
Train, plane or automobile may get you to the trailhead, but you’ll likely spend some time on your feet! You can depend on the rugged durability of Merrell, Oboz, Salomon, and Vasque to cover the miles, or maybe you’re after the comfort and style of Blundstone and OluKai. And for a barefoot experience that knows (virtually) no boundaries, you’ll find Chaco and Keen are the perfect fit! And don’t forget the Smartwool or Wigwam socks – just don’t wear them with your sandals!
Traveling light begins by packing light. Packing light means leaving the unnecessary behind. When looking good and feeling good are both on the itinerary, you’ll need to choose wisely. All year long, the apparel line-ups from ExOfficio, Icebreaker, and Arc’Teryx are tailor-made for travel, with wrinkle-resistant and odor-resistant fabrics, meant to look great and wear even better. Keep the weight light and the enjoyment high with camp and travel accessories from Crazy Creek, Petzl, and Sea to Summit. Now you’re ready!
