Adventure 16, Southern California’s Outdoor Experts.

Adventure 16 has a reputation as one of the best outdoor outfitters in the United States. Our dedication to providing Customers with the finest products, first hand and accurate information, and plenty of inspiration, has guided us since our origin in 1962.

Adventure 16 began as a goal of some young Explorer Scouts whose leaders were involved in river running in the early 60s. Together, they set out to make 16mm adventure films for a lecture series. In the process, their passion turned to making backpacks. A garage in La Mesa, California became a workshop to develop a revolutionary pack design that allowed much of the pack’s weight to be carried comfortably on the hips. By the late 60’s the hobby had become a business. The entrepreneurial leaders were busy inventing and selling innovative, top-of-the-line products, including the first two-layer dome tent specifically engineered for backpackers needs.

In 1970, Mic Mead, an avid customer and active outdoorsman, bought and incorporated the company. Throughout the 70s, growth and innovation was steady. Mic focused on designing and improving production efficiency. Among other things, he designed the first baffled down parka and pioneered the use of aluminum alloy tent poles for an optimal strength-to-weight combination.

After opening retail outlets and distributing products nationwide, Adventure 16 led the industry in introducing the Lifetime Guarantee on all products bearing its name.

Adventure 16 offers inspiring slide shows and educational clinics at store locations. We now consist of five retail locations, as well as a wholesale division specializing in accessories for backpacking, camping, climbing and adventure travel.

Collectively we still strive to fulfill Adventure 16’s mission:

“With a shared appreciation for the outdoors and in the spirit of continuous improvement, the people of Adventure 16 work together to achieve a harmonious balance among genuine customer loyalty, a meaningful and enjoyable work environment and a financially prosperous company.”

John D Mead,
President

Run, Hike, Live, Love: Gear Reviews from the 2013 PCT FKT: Part 1


A thru-hike always puts gear and clothing to the ultimate test. Daily use for months on end is more than most items are manufactured for. During my speed hike I added the quantity of hours per day used to that equation. Since I never took a day off and seldom stopped for breaks most of my gear was under constant bombardment except the 5 hours a night I was sleeping. Therefore the pieces of gear that stood out as all stars I can highly recommend. Other pieces I wasn’t as happy with. However, keep in mind that these reviews are only about how these things worked for me. Every person is different, has different needs, a different hiking style, and may have different results. Analyze my kudos and complaints in light of how they would apply to your hike/hiking style. This is not an exhaustive list of my gear, just the items I feel deserve a review and/or people frequently ask about.
