I've been shopping at The Outdoor Source since they opened. The staff is always friendly and willing to help out no matter how long it takes. How many other stores who's employees DON'T work on commission will take that kind of time to help someone out? Not many. They always have a great selection and the brands they carry are the best! They helped me pick out some new gear and clothing for my trip out West to WA. Everything worked great for my assent up Mt. Rainier. Thanks and keep up the great job!

I was SO thrilled to see fit, experienced women on the staff at this store. I had heard about this store through Summer League (Ultimate Disc). I stopped by to get a pack and other stuff for a week long trip to the Grand Canyon. No offense to the guys, who had good suggestions, but it was comforting to get advice from women! The service was very personal and not pushy. They took the tiem to fit my pack and even weigh it down. They asked lots of questions and even guided me away from making a purchase that I didn't need. They seemed to be more concerned with making my trip enjoyable that for making a sale. No matter the item, it seemed like someone in the store had used it or currently used it and was happy to share their thoughts on it.

I found these guys two years ago. I really like the brand names they carry. Very knowledgeable staff. I think I learn something new every time I go there. Great store events. They will go out of there way to help you out. I have been to everyone else in town and outdoor source still is a notch above everyone else. Don't take my advise or anyone else, go check them out for yourself. I can't wait for the new store in westerville!Pros: Great selection. Great customer service. match prices. very knowledgeable.Cons: On the other side of town. Not that many classes

I used to shop here all the time and I was able to deal with the snobby attitudes I recieved from time to time. The last time I was in to buy a sprayskirt for my kayak that a friend purchased for me there not long ago. The clerk, and older skinny gentleman, tried and tried to talk me OUT of buying the sprayskirt. I can understand some advice for someone who may not know exactly what they are buying but I kayak a lot and use skirts early and late in the season. His condesending attitude became too much for me and I left.
There is a new outfitter in Clintonville on High Street and they ordered the skirt for me right away, and from a better company, Seals, that are made here in the USA. This is my new favorite store for outdoor goods. Forget those snobs over at Outdoor Source!
