Due to limited staffing and a lower in-store capacity, the best way to shop is to call ahead. Call us today (513.248.7787) to schedule a time for one-on-one service or just to browse. We are taking walk-in traffic BUT our appointments will have first priority so be prepared for a possible wait as time slots are given on a first come-first served basis. Masks are still required and currently mandated.

Know what you need or just have a question, give us a call! We are offering over the phone consultations and live stream presentations to help all your adventure needs! Complete with shipping or contact-less curbside pickup – it’s just like shopping from the comfort of your own couch – but will a cool RRT associate. Many outdoor goods remain hard for manufacturers to keep up with and inventory can move fast. We highly recommend shopping on our website and putting orders on hold or purchasing online.

Please remember, it is important to us that we continue our business of truly helping people in their outdoor pursuits while also respecting every customer, employee, and member of our community. For that reason, we have worked to be at the forefront of information regarding the Covid-19 virus, our state’s policies, our employee’s needs, and a list of policies that will enable best practices for our business.

    Forward: Brandon, in his other life was a barista at Milford's Main Cup. Learning the ways of the bean led to his deeper understating of caffeination.
