Welcome Wilderness Orientation & Outing Club Participants!
Personally, we are pretty psyched that you chose Vermont as the location for your higher education. We are even more psyched that you chose to participate in your college's Wilderness Orientation program or outing club. Odds are pretty high that you will fall in love with Vermont and decide never to leave this beautiful state! Fret not, for you aren't alone. Many before you have already come to realize the beauty and wonder of Vermont's outdoor lifestyle, we're just glad to be able to help you take that first step!
GearX.com and the Outdoor Gear Exchange are proud to work with incoming college freshman and club participants to properly outfit them for their Wilderness Orientation Programs or Outing Club Adventures. We offer a 20% discount for outing club members up until the program starts. Order your gear online, then pick it up at the Outdoor Gear Exchange when you arrive in Burlington or have it shipped so you can break your new boots in before hitting the trail.
Below you'll find a convenient list with links to all the types of gear we stock that may be needed for your adventure. This list contains gear that is both required and optional depending on the trip so see your trip's gear list for exact requirements. If you are having trouble finding what you need online, give us a call at 888-547-4327 or you can use the Contact Form to email us. We'd be happy to advise you.
