Here at Durango Outdoor Exchange we see just about everything outdoors and even some items not made for the outdoors! In this post we want to highlight some of those not-traditionally outdoorsy items that we have come to consider integral to any outing. 

Zip ties: Did you know that you can fix anything with enough zip ties? Well, maybe not anything but you sure can fix a lot. We carry these things just about everywhere for in field fixes from bike repairs to zipper pulls. 

Crocs: These legendary and wildly stylish shoes just so happen to be great for camping and backpacking. Crocs are comfy, light weight and can get wet which makes them a very practical camp shoe. You can wear them casually, with the strap pulled forward, or in “adventure mode” with the strap secured behind your heel for a quick jaunt near camp.

New Skin: If you haven’t seen or heard of New Skin before, it's a hard drying liquid bandage ideal for sealing off hard to cover cuts. It essentially acts as an antiseptic super glue and we swear by it. As many people who regularly travel outdoors know, it’s a good idea to bring a first aid kit on any outing and this little vial of liquid gold should be the first addition to any basic first aid kit. We love it so much we carry it at the shop for$5.99

Glitter: We don’t feel like we need to say much about this one. Packs small, is lightweight and dramatically increases morale in all outdoor settings. Of course, we encourage everyone to splurge on biodegradable glitter to avoid putting micro plastics in our natural spaces. It should be noted that tutu’s and other costumes have a similar effect to glitter when it comes to boosting morale but glitter wins as far as “packability” is concerned.

As an outdoor business it may not be a surprise that Durango Outdoor Exchange prioritizes our team’s love of the outdoors. But as a Sustainable Business we not only support our team’s outdoor passions and time to pursue them, but we take it one step further by being closed one day a week on Sunday’s.

Obviously with a name like Durango Outdoor Exchange, we love the great outdoors. Every time we bring our paddle boards (SUPs) out to the Animas River with our kids or hike the Colorado high country to escape the summer heat and be wowed by the explosion of flowers in bloom, we recommit to saving our home and planet for future generations.

As our kids grew into and out of ski clothes, sandals, jackets (and everything else really), it has been perfect to have Chase and Jen’s shop to move them up to the next size.  I can’t, admittedly, say it has just been good for the kids.
