Winter is Coming, Outdoor Afros!

Has not knowing the most cost effective and basic clothing items to buy prevented you from having fun in the snow?

Are you ready to upgrade your rain jacket and buy one that you can wear in rain and in snow?

What do gators and turtles have to do getting out in the snow?

Want to know whether gloves or mittens will keep your hands the warmest?

Interested in learning whether cotton or silk long underwear provides the most comfort for an active outing?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions or have any other questions about buying outdoor gear, we hope you’ll join us for a special “indoor” Outdoor Afro event!


Oh, yes we do!! That's why Outdoor Afro has teamed up with REI to host an exclusive  workshop for Outdoor Afro members. This special seminar was created to give you the tips you need in order to invest in products that will enhance your experience in the outdoors. Held in advance of Outdoor Afro's winter events, this meet up will get you ready make that investment for a lifetime of snow (and rain) adventures!

Everyone who attends this event will receive the following:

1. Advice on how to buy winter/rain outdoor gear, including waterproof jackets, long underwear, gators and socks specifically tailored to your needs.

3. A presentation of upcoming Outdoor Afro trips and tip on how what select items to buy

4. A coupon for an additional 20% off one full-price REI or Novara brand item

5. An opportunity to ask one on one questions about buying snow shoes, skis, and snow boots.


Looking forward to seeing you there!

    I LOVE to ski (downhill) and have a lot of gear, but I'm probably missing a few items. Hope to connect with some fellow snow sport enthusiasts or anyone interested.
