About ExploreOutdoor

Not all who wander are lost…

ExploreOutdoor is a different kind of eCommerce business. We are small, bootstrapped, and independant. With a foundation of love for outdoor adventure spanning over 40-years, we are committed to offering the best offroad overlanding gear at the best prices. Whatever you might label your style of adventure – Overlanding, off-roading, offroad exploring, car camping, hiking, or all of these – ExploreOutdoor understands the importance of having quality equipment, and delivering it all with exceptional customer-support.

We are a family-owned online business, located in the heart of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge – Hood River Oregon.  We are surrounded by all kinds of outdoor recreation opportunities.  The wind sports may be popular here, but so are overlanding, offroading, camping and hiking. Like our customers, we LOVE the outdoors! 

As for being different, we call it: Delivering gear – with a purpose!  Childhood cancer – specifically osteosarcoma – is not a common cancer. Each year, about 800 to 900 new cases of osteosarcoma are diagnosed in the United States. About half of these are in children and teens. Most osteosarcomas occur in children and young adults between the ages of 10 and 30.

At ExploreOutdoor we are committed to supporting the fight against childhood cancer! Having been personally affected by osteosarcoma, ExploreOutdoor is giving-back to the organizations that help kids & parents during their fight, and supporting the research to find a cure to this horrible disease. Our mission: ExploreOutdoor donates a portion of all sales proceeds to a number of amazing organizations. We hope the the blood, sweat & tears that built ExploreOutdoor will continue to grow, allowing us to support as many “sarcoma warriors” as possible. Our customers also support this cause – rather than give hard-earned money to Amazon.com or “big-box” stores, they pay-it-forward! To our customers we say “Thank You”! To the organizations that supported OUR family… we continue to say “Thank You”!!
