Since we started over 40 years ago, there has always been a store in Chicago. From our humble beginnings in Rodgers Park to our current location in Lincoln Park, Erehwon Mountain Outfitter has enjoyed preparing Chicago folk for their outdoor adventures. Our current location for the last 8 years is located at the corner of North and Sheffield avenue just a few blocks from the North & Clybourn Red Line stop with a convenient parking lot right outside.
The Chicago location is captained by Jim and Paul, both with over 20 years with Erehwon and experience exploring the outdoors. Jim began his outdoor career with a degree in Parks and Recreation from Western Illinois University while spending his first year after graduation on the Environmental Conservation Education Expedition. He then earned his Outdoor Leadership Certification in the Wind River Range before earning his WEA Instructor Certification through Paul Petzel. Jim also taught Outdoor Survival for 2 years before joining our team at Erehwon. Jim is an accomplished mountaineer with summits of Rainier, McKinley and Grand Teton in addition to many others. Paul came to Erehwon after a lifetime in the outdoors as an avid skier (both Alpine and Nordic), cyclist, hiker and skateboarder in his earlier, more limber, days. Paul is best known around the shop as the master Boot Fitter, earning a certificate from Phil Lorne and the Masterfit University. In addition to boot fitting, Paul is one of Chicago's best pack-fitters and our go-to Yakima expert.
As fellow outdoor enthusiasts, we’re here to help you with our knowledge and skills to get fitted in the best way possible for that fun outdoor adventure you’re about to embark on.
Welcome to the Mid-West’s #1 source for outdoor clothing and gear. First opened in 1972, Erehwon Mountain Supply had its humble beginnings in an 800 square foot store on Chicago's North Side. read more
