’Tis the season for shopping and you’ve come to the right place. This time of year, Bear Rock Adventures is known for two things: The newest Pittsburg, NH, snowmobile rentals and the best place to shop for the coolest gifts. Swing by our snowmobile rentals page to book your adventure today and gear up with recommendations from our adventure pros for everyone on your holiday list!
Stay warm and stylish as you are cruising along in a Polaris 2-seater snowmobile and explore the latest gear from brands like KLIM, 509 and Kari Traa. The Outdoor Adventure Store has the largest outdoor clothing selection in the North Country. This is the place to be!
Our expansive retail experience is a one-stop-shop for camping, riding, and the lifestyles that go along with them. It’s also attached to Bear Rock’s popular northeast snowmobile & ATV rentals shop, so in-person shoppers can check out the newest side-by-side rentals while browsing an endless selection of gear.

What gear do I get for someone new to outdoor adventure?
The best advice we have for anyone is to layer—especially anyone new to adventuring in New Hampshire. Whether you are exploring with our side-by-side rentals or camping, you never know what Mother Nature might bring. KLIM is the top of the line when it comes to layering for men and Kari Traa offers some incredible options for women who want to add a stylish flair. Our experts can help outfit you, or those on your holiday shopping list, with functionality and warmth for outdoor exploration in any season.
What should I get from someone who already has everything?
If you’re shopping for someone who has everything, think about ways to improve their already existing gear. Our outdoor experts recommend looking at the smaller items—those are the ones that slip through the cracks but can be a game changer on a ride. Glove liners for example are a great little gift. Unlike really bulky gloves, these keep the cold out and let you use your hands at the same time. They are more budget friendly and can make for a better riding experience doing colder weather.
What about really experienced adventures?
People who are obsessed with the outdoors will love any gift that makes it easier to, well, go outdoors. A high-quality jacket—like the KLIM Keweenaw Jacket—not only keeps them warm when they’re doing what they love, but it also gives them plenty of reason to think of you while they’re doing because it was specifically engineered from rider feedback! The KLIM Keweenaw comes in five different styles, so you’re guaranteed to look amazing while cutting tracks on one of our snowmobiles or in the bookend seasons with side-by-side rentals.
What’s a lesser-known item in the store?
For men, Dakota Grizzly crafts comfy, smart-looking shirts and outerwear that combine style and utility seamlessly. For women, Indyeva is a brand we adore, too. They’re filling a higher-end fashion need in the outdoor space, and we can’t get enough.
Any good stocking stuffer tips?
Socks! Seriously, socks. Everyone loves warm feet, and the Outdoor Adventure Store has a great selection from KLIM, 509 and Farm to Feet. Browse our store for easy-to-ship ideas for the holidays, like candles, stuffed animals, hunting gear and more. Plus, don’t miss out on our Holiday Gift Certificate Promotion. For every $150 you spend, you get a $25 gift certificate through December 15, 2022.Use them as stocking stuffers, too!
What’s an item people might be surprised to find?
Our store stocks footwear beyond the snow boot, like high-end Frye Boots. Manufactured in the USA with absolutely beautiful craftsmanship, these are some of the most well-made items you’ll wear and are as durable as they come.
What about something local?
Our Bear Rock Adventures sweatshirts are a huge hit with visitors, locals and staff. They’re great for kicking around, super comfy, and let everyone know you’ve got an adventuring spirit.
What’s a great staff pick from the store?
Hands down, the KLIM Inversion Jacket. This jacket is easily the most versatile jacket we carry. It’s made warm with GORE Windstopper and fleece, plus it’s an active-level jacket so it’s extremely flexible, stretchy and breathable. Perfect for cruising on one of the many snowmobile tours N.H. has to offer.
What about the kids?
Great news! We created a section of the store devoted entirely to kids. Check out the FXR Jacket & Bibs for kids. They’re all equipped with F.A.S.T (Flotation, Assist, Safety, Tech), an emergency floatation device should the child fall into the water.
