Backcountry Essentials is an outdoor specialty shop. We cater to the outdoor community, specifically: skiers, hikers, climbers, campers, and people who enjoy the culture of the Northwest and Bellingham. We love to test gear, recognize everyone was a beginner at some point, and welcome all levels of interest in the outdoors. Our aim is to make your days off that much better, so you can go back to saving the world in whatever ways you choose.
