Camping & Hiking

Next Adventure

Next Adventure is Oregon’s alternative outdoor store. Born out of friendship in 1997, we’ve grown a ton (we now have four stores and an online shop) but we’ve remained obsessed with community, getting people outfitted for any adventure of their choice at the price they crave, and employing experts in the field. We love the outdoors and offer used gear, rentals and deals so anyone can get the snow gear, paddle gear, kids gear, and more that they need to enjoy the great outdoors.

We’re an avant-garde product design company striving to make the outdoor experiences a bit more accessible, fun, and inspirational for the new wave of diverse consumers existing within – and entering – the outdoor industry.

We want to not only solve common pet peeves through thoughtful and deliberate designs, but make splashes in the industry by focusing on how people actually use products in their daily lives. The result is a product family that provides real, practical value whether used on the trail or in the kitchen.

Our goal is to expand this ethos to a whole ecosystem of clever, functional, and beautiful products that make eating and cooking a bit easier for hungry people of all shapes and sizes.
