Phillip Gall's outfits hikers, campers, and paddlers with durable outdoor apparel and equipment from brands such as Patagonia, The North Face, and Osprey. Outdoorsmen can wrap their torsos in Patagonia T-shirts with 50+ UPF sun protection woven into their stretchy fabric ($29) to protect skin from burning and keep Rorschach tattoos from fading away. Meanwhile, women's quick-drying, abrasion-resistant Paramount Moraine shorts from The North Face ($40) keep stems comfortable and protected on arduous mountain hikes. The Osprey UL raincover ($34–$39) shelters backpacks from moisture during treks under waterfalls and through locker-room shower stalls, and summer campers can swaddle themselves in a CoolMax sleeping-bag liner ($44.95), designed for use on its own or layered for warmth on chilly, starlit nights.

Manager Kelly Andrews has more than 15 years of experience in the spa and medical-aesthetics industries, including nine years spent working under a clinically and cosmetically skilled dermatologist.
Metallic artwork on the warm-colored walls offers gentle, textual reminders such as Rejuvenate and Return that library book, and white columns and a backlit rotunda add a touch of sophistication. Within the salon and spa's clean, tranquil interior, staffers transform hair with Aveda, Bumble and Bumble, Mizani, and Kenra products, and they perform spa services ranging from Dermalogica facials and 15-minute Brazilian waxes to OPI manicures and hydrotherapy-tub treatments.
