North County San Diego's oldest and finest outdoor & travel specialty shop. Although this location has plenty of products for backpackers, its primary focus is on providing gear and clothing for adventurous travelers. This is a must stop and shop for people who like to travel to some of the world’s most remote and rugged places, in style and with the best, most reliable gear possible. The staff is well traveled and well trained on the products and helpful tricks for travelers. When it opened in the mid 70's under the ownership of our old friends at Eagle Creek, it was tucked in among cabinet shops in Solana Beach's industrial zone and one of the region’s most famous bars, the Belly Up. Today it's nestled right smack dab in the middle of the beach town's most high end furniture and clothing stores and some great hangout spots, including Culture Brewing, Lofty Coffee and the Wild Note. And, oh yes, don't forget the Belly Up is going stronger than ever.
