Best Service

We’ve been called a lot of things – experts, enthusiasts, gearheads, outdoor junkies, whisperers, etc. Most of us spend our days outdoors or planning our next outdoor adventure. It’s likely you will meet up with us on the trail, in the woods, on the mountain, along a waterway, on the beach, or in the surf. The point is, like you, we’re passionate about the outdoors. So, we are here to listen, give you honest and experienced answers on your gear, how to use it, and where to go – we understand how important your adventure is, because we’ve been there.

Best Gear

When it comes to our gear, we search out for the best quality, performance, and value. We handpick only the top outdoor gear and apparel for you. We all know technology evolves and so do we; staying current with the newest and best gear, without ignoring proven brands, technology, and value is one of our core values.

Best Value

The best value to us is the best gear, service, knowledge, and price we can provide. We make sure we take care of you, so when you are out there you are safe, feel great about yourself, and enjoy what you’re doing in the way you expect. Researching or making a choice, shopping small - send our experts an email or give us a call.


We at U.S. Outdoor are a part of the communities we live, work, and play in. From the coast to the mountains, the water we drink and the air we breathe, we are committed to making a positive difference. You’ll find us chipping in, helping others, and getting involved wherever we can. From helping with trail restoration, cleaning up our waterways, to helping kids and those fighting illnesses, we work to help everyone experience the healing power of nature and the outdoors.


Shortly after WWII, father-and-son duo, Jacob and Sam Solomon, started the U.S. Army Surplus Store in Portland, Oregon. Surplus stores are the roots of many outdoor stores, (seriously, who doesn’t love paracord, folding shovels, and the durable goods designed for our hardworking military). The family started selling military ski gear and winter apparel which evolved into carrying ski and winter gear for the growing industry. In 1957, the U.S. Outdoor Store was born with the goal of outfitting outdoor enthusiasts in the area. The shop’s reach went international in 1996 when became one of the first outdoor stores to have an online presence.

Since, U.S. Outdoor Store has continued to help newcomers, enthusiasts, and experts gear up - guiding people in the journey to enjoy everything the great outdoors have to offer. Throughout, U.S. Outdoor has remained committed to maintaining great service, in-person expertise, great gear providing a familiar feeling of a local family shop, and being your outdoor store.
