Gear To Go Outfitters
After touring the world as a Naval Officer, Gear To Go Outfitters founder Kevin Rosenberg moved to New York City and was amazed at how hard it was to track down rental backpacking gear. An avid hiker and outdoorsman, Kevin saw this opportunity and jumped at it. Today, Gear To Go Outfitters rents out high-quality equipment that ranges from backpacks to camp stoves, and delivers it right to the client’s door in an effort to reduce their trip-planning stress.
A survival and navigation expert, Kevin also leads adventures while sharing bits of knowledge he picked up in the Southwestern desert regions, the forests of Costa Rica, and the Appalachian Trail. Kevin is assisted by a team of experienced guides who lead tours that include rock scrambles through the Hudson Highlands, hikes through the Green Mountains of Vermont, voyages through the mountains of Arizona, or plunges into the caverns of one's own imagination.
