Open for Business: Gear to Go Outfitters, 215 Garfield Place

Owner Kevin Rosenberg
A new outdoor shop opened over the weekend at 215 Garfield Place (between Seventh and Eighth) called Gear to Go, and it'll specialize in gear for backpacking, camping, and hiking. 


Owner Kevin Rosenberg, who was previously a Naval officer, started the company out of his apartment two years ago, as a mail-order service. His carefully curated selection of gear quickly gained a reputation for high quality (getting written up in the Daily News and Crain's), and for the past nine months he's had a small unnamed shop on Seventh between Carroll and Garfield. 


Along with his carefully crafted selection of high-end, top of the line gear, he'll be renting equipment like tents, and will lead guided trips to campsites all along the Eastern Seaboard, complete with transportation, guides, and meals. 

In the basement, he's hoping to host lectures and classes, and to serve as a real community resource for everything outdoors-related. 


Gear to Go Outfitters, 215 Garfield Place Brooklyn NY 11217.

Cool. Looks like a great store and I wish this guy the best of luck. Feels like a tough business to keep open in this neighborhood and economy.
