A Resource For Explorers


Avi David Edelson Head ShotTraverse Outfitters hand-delivers rental backcountry and camping equipment in New York City, and the surrounding region. We outfit numerous regional guiding companies, provide rental services for specialty outdoor retailers and work with a range of individual clients and corporate partners.

More recently, we expanded our range of services to include group outfittings and events. From weddings and corporate retreats, to wilderness training events and backcountry basecamps, our group outfitting services are designed for events where timing and convenience are paramount.

At Traverse Outfitters our goal is to streamline the outfitting process and make outdoor experiences accessible to everyone. Let’s see what we can do for you.

“If you’re in New York City, don’t have the gear for either the camping or hiking, but don’t relish the thought of lugging tent and sleeping bag on the subway, do consider renting from Traverse Outfitters.  They’re the only outfitter in New York City who will deliver your equipment to your house or apartment if you’re within the five boroughs. With tents, sleeping bags, packs and pads, renting’s just a matter of call, wait for the drop-off, and hit the road. And if your order’s more than $99.00, delivery is free.”

“So come Sunday morning we couldn’t wait to strap on the snowshoes we rented from Traverse Outfitters (delivered to our door!) and head to Prospect Park for a surprisingly delightful adventure hiking through the thigh-deep snow drifts that blanketed the area.” – Sorta Outdoorsy in Brokelyn
