“I have been wearing the Valiance jacket for the past few days and it has been keeping me toasty!!! I looked for hours over the weekend for a jacket that would stand up to the negative temps we have had lately and this is the only one that did! Also shout out to Pingora for great customer service!”
“As someone who doesn’t know much about intense hiking or camping, but wants to learn about coldweather gear and outdoor climbing, this place was great. The fact that I was able to use my money supporting a local Ankeny business, and that Pingora is going to push for more classes/group outings/activities in 2018, and it was an easy choice for me to buy at Pingora instead of driving down to REI. Amazon is convenient, REI is awesome, but I like spending on local business if I have the choice.
Dom gave me the summary of the ‘tech specs’ for the gear as well as the quicknotes breakdown (this will stop you from freezing to death!), which helped me make decisions pretty quickly and easily. This is really unusual for me, since I generally will spend about a week researching products online, but Dom’s passion for the topic is obvious, and I didn’t feel like I was being ‘sold’. I felt more like I was at a beginner’s seminar by a camping scientist, which actually might describe Dom pretty well. So instead of doing questionable-quality internet research, all I had to do was listen to Dom about the gear for a few minutes. Half of it went over my head, but I got the gist (not freezing to death = good).
“I absolutely love the men’s Roscoe Washakie pant you recommended. They are the most comfortable hiking and outdoor pant I own and are wearing like iron. Thanks for the recommendation and all the help with camping equipment this summer. The new store rocks !”
“Pingora Outdoors is great! The gear is personally tested so they can make suggestions based off of experience not just off what the manufacturers say.”
“Stopped in and talked with Dom. What a great place. Best gear, fantastic pricing, and they’re super knowledgeable about the gear they have available.”
