LOCALS LOVE WALKABOUT

Curated and quality selection of name brand outdoor gear. I had better luck here than at REI finding rain outerwear for an upcoming trek across Scotland.

Walkabout Outfitter is a great place to shop to get great customer service. The sales associates are experienced in outdoor activities and very knowledgeable about the products. They carry a wide range of outdoor gear and clothes. I’ve shopped at their other locations and was delighted when they came to RVA!

I went into the store in Lexington, Virginia and saw an item I loved, but it was not in my size. I asked if they had stock in back and they didn’t, but the lady who helped me said she would check other stores.  She found one as was willing to go pick it up for us… in the end she shipped it and I couldn’t be happier.  That is CUSTOMER SERVICE! Thanks!

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. They always go the extra mile to put me in the right gear, at a fair price. Every. Single. Time. Great folks.
