Outdoors Outfitters

       Here are a few contacts for outdoors outfitters. The MacScouter does not endorse any of these companies -- I'm sure that all of them will provide fine service, particularly if you identify yourself as a Scouting leader. I'm sure there are others out there that I have not found. Please send me information on other companies to include here.

Appalachian Outfitters
"I recommend Appalachian Outfsitters -- they have two outlets in Ohio. The main store is 60 Kendall Park Rd., Peninsula, Ohio 44264 - phone (330) 655-5444. The original store is at 2719/B Fulton Dr., Canton, OH 44728 - phone (330) 452-6323. They handle a wide variety of outdoor gear and clothing - climbing, hiking, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking. The Peninsula facility has a brand new climbing wall - the best in Ohio. Their products tend to be a bit pricey but the service is the very best available. Their employees are extremely knowledgeable about the products because they use them. They take as much time as needed to explain and properly fit any gear you buy. I have experienced this myself. I highly recommend this outfitter." Harry J. Bowman
