Intro to Hiking and Backpacking

Whether you are a first time hiker/backpacker, or a seasoned expert looking for new ideas for up to date gear and techniques, join us for our Intro to Hiking and Backpacking. 

We'll review the Must-Haves for every hiking pack, and what makes backpacking different from hiking.

Learn about the special features you see on today's packs, and how to properly size your torso for a pack.

See what new products have entered the market for this season, and what makes them so special!

Also available at the Skokie location, call[masked]

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
