THIS LAND WAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME — TO EXPLORE.

The Outpost of Holland didn’t get to be Michigan’s premier outdoor specialty store by selling a few niche products and a random pair of boots. We devoted ourselves to wearing, testing and carefully selecting the best in gear, equipment and apparel. Whether in the wilderness or on the town, we put our skills and customer service to the test.

We bucked the trend in retail and chose to interact with customers in-person rather than on-line. Throughout the two floors of our phenomenal store, we offer an ever-wider breadth of outer gear and essentials for every level of outdoorsmen — novice to aficionado. It’s how we’ve always done business. 45 years and counting.
