Specializing in outdoor products, Adventure 16 provides daring travelers with a large selection of high-quality apparel and gear that is not only built to last, but also designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Trailblazers can charge confidently through cactus fields or scorpion pits with a pair of durable The North Face Paramount convertible pants ($65), which can be morphed from pants into shorts. Protect built-in binoculars with a pair of Native polarized sunglasses ($89) and further deflect UV rays with a fashionable Tilley Airflo hat ($76). Spelunkers will be glad for the company of a Nalgene Tritan water bottle ($9.50) that keeps thirst quenchers tightly bottled, as well as a Black Diamond Cosmo headlamp ($29.95) to light the way out of any cave, dense rainforest, or haunted house.
Adventure 16 was established in 1962, when some scouts ventured into the wild with their leaders to make 16-mm adventure films for lectures and ended up crafting backpacks instead. Since then, the outdoor experts have been pumping out a nonstop barrage of practical products, useful information, and valuable inspiration for adventurous wanderers, nomads, and traveling circus employees. The friendly employees are also masters of boot-fitting and custom pack-fitting.
