Explore Global. Shop Local.
Store manager Rudy Hayden knows that the best climber, fisher, or other outdoor sportsman is the one having the most fun. Anyone who has forgotten a rash guard while surfing or didn’t purchase a windbreaker for a rainy hike knows that it’s hard to have fun when you’re cold and underprepared. At Great Outdoor Provision Co. in Charlotte, our staff knows outdoor activities and the appropriate gear inside and out.
Looking for a sleeping bag that will keep you warm at a certain temperature? Need a particular fishing fly? Do you know you want a kayak, but aren’t sure what kind you’d like? Come to our store, and we’ll make sure that you get what you need.
Don’t worry – we won't load you up with dozens of gadgets that barely fit in your backpack and weigh eighty pounds. Our time outdoors has taught us what things you really need (thermal baselayers) and what you probably don't (ten-pound portable shower). Whatever your situation is, our experienced staff has probably encountered it before, and we can give you the products (and the advice!) that you need for a successful outdoor adventure.
Do you want to explore the outdoors, but aren’t quite sure what to do? Come to our boat demos, standup paddle board demos, fly tying classes, or kayak fishing clinics. At Great Outdoor Provision Co., we want to share our passion for the wilderness with you.
