A:Founded in the late 1980s, this powerhouse is the undisputed champion of gear shops in the Southeast. Chattanooga’s renaissance as one of the top outdoor towns in the region has been aided and amplified by this store, which began as a specialty shop for climbing and paddling gear, but now runs the gamut of outdoor equipment. If Chattanooga is too far to travel, you can shop on their site.
