Shrewd campers looking to fend off wild creatures need bug repellant to deter mosquitos, sturdy coolers to stop ravenous raccoons, and electric shavers to degrizzle grizzly bears. Stock up with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of outdoor gear and supplies at Nurpu River & Mountain Supply in Noblesville.
Voted the 2009 and 2010 Best Outdoor Gear retailer in Indianapolis by CityVoters, Nurpu River & Mountain Supply hooks up hikers, bikers, and fresh-air seekers with gear, apparel, footwear, and more from specialty outdoor brands. Stay hydrated with the handy 0.75-liter CamelBak Better Bottle ($9.95), or navigate midnight trips to the refrigerator with the Princeton Tec Byte LED headlamp ($19.95). The MSR Pocket Rocket backpacking stove ($39.95) helps campers fashion a fire on the fly. Expedition-bound explorers can apply this Groupon toward an Osprey Aether 70 backpack ($259) or a Perception Prodigy 12.0 kayak ($699), which floats among Nurpu's vast array of kayaks and standup paddleboards. Because of a centuries-old thumb-war victory against ancient Argentinean craftsmen, Nurpu River & Mountain Supply is one of the few places to find Patagonia-brand clothing in the area.
