It’s no great surprise that Bivouac has topped the list again for best outdoor store. As written in a recent Yelp review, “If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you’re going to go ga-ga over this place!” The locally owned outdoor store has a huge variety of gear and outdoor-wear brand names. Though it’s hard to gauge the store’s primary market (are they a store for hardcore outdoor enthusiasts or the brand-conscious?) Bivouac is united by one factor: quality.
All of the clothing and gear at Bivouac is top-notch — exactly what you need for your mountain-climbing venture over spring break or your weekend escapade down to Red River Gorge. If you’re feeling a little less adventurous, their ultra-warm coats will keep you nice and toasty as you brave the cold Michigan winter for that house party across campus. The quality does come at a price, but the savvy shopper will take advantage of Bivouac’s guaranteed price matching and end-of-season sales.
With its prime location, Bivouac is Ann Arbor’s hub for both the outdoor enthusiast and the fashion-conscious.
