Fifteen years ago, Outside World Outfitters was created out of necessity to bring outdoor goods to the North Georgia community.


Prior to the store opening, outfitters in the North Atlanta area were few and far between; e-commerce had not blown up like we know it today. Over the span of the store's history, Outside World Outfitters has maintained a high level of knowledge, stewardship, and commitment to outfitting explorers.

What makes us unique?


The store is home to our infamous indoor wave pool, the only of it's kind in the United States. We also have the largest selection of kayaks in the southeast and well over 100 outdoor brands, but that's not all we pride ourselves on. We might be biased, but we also have the best and most knowledgeable staff around. From thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, to whitewater kayaking beastly rivers, to being able to catch some monstrous fish off of a stand-up paddle board, the experience our staff has is hard to beat.

Outside World Outfitters exists not only to outfit your exploration, but also to be your best friend in the outdoor industry. Come hang out in the store, try some kayaks out in the pool, then tell us about your adventures. We're happy to listen.
