We might be gear junkies, but life is filled with so much more than the stuff you can fit into a backpack. At Earth Gear, we believe adventure is a lifestyle. Sure, adventure exists in your activities, but it also is in your soul. Where and how you live, what you eat, and what you do with your family and friends are all elements of an adventurous life. That’s why we are dedicated to sharing tips, tricks, stories, and secrets about not just how to best equip yourself, but how to best BE yourself.

We share information on how to train properly so you can be ready to do what you want to do. What are the best exercises to prepare you for hiking, climbing, skiing, or biking? What’s the best way to recover? We sift through all the self help mumbo jumbo and get you the best info and advice designed specifically to help you get ready for the adventures you choose.

Also, you have to eat. We help you choose the right fuel for your furnace. Food is critical – and really tasty. You have to pack the right food into your bag, and your belly. It’s not just cardboard-tasting energy bars, dehydrated astronaut food, protein shakes, and radical little cans of medicine water. Yeah, those things have their place, but so does real food like homemade veggie burgers, white bean hummus, unwrapped burritos, campfire pizza, and just the right beer for after a long hike. After all, life is meant to be enjoyed.

We at Earth Gear believe the adventure of the outdoors shouldn’t stop when you get home. The love of nature is in everything we do and everywhere we go. That’s why we also explore where and how we live, the best outdoor retreats, backyard utopias, home decorating ideas, and unique furnishings designed to reflect your feelings of adventure. Turn every day into an adventure.
