I moved here from the high desert of Arizona.  Badass Outdoors was run for two and half years as a micro-mobile store, in that we traveled from white water events to biking events to climbing competitions and then on to save-the-planet events all in my in-laws' 30 foot motor home.  We paddled, biked, hiked, and frisbee golfed all over the United States and then sold gear to event competitors and participants.  


It became time to take Badass Outdoors to the next level and we knew we had to be around mountains and rivers, Littleton was perfect!!

The Gear Shop is stocked with an extrapolation of my own gear closet.  If I used a product, abused that product, and still loved that product, only then did it make its way into the Badass inventory.  Badass Outdoors is here to offer our years of guiding, outfitting, and instructing to all of our clients and customers!

Update: Alas, the gear shop is no more.  I remain in the White Mountains where I work as a manager for a major ski area and write books about wildness.
