Eastern Mountain Sports


If you're doing any sort of backpacking, this is the place to go.  They carry everything from backpacks to ice-picks and everything in-between.  If you're next stop is the Amazon Jungle or the frozen tundra that is Canada or just plan on hiking around Midtown, these guys will have everything you need and a lot that you probably wont.  Check the info desk for coupons, as they are hosteler friendly.
