This airy, light-filled store, located right next to Elephant’s Trunk, focuses on technologically advanced, fashion forward, and eco-friendly outdoor, travel, and exercise clothing and gear from such industry leaders as Patagonia, Mountain Hardware, Lolë, Vasque, and more. Named in honor of Maine’s Acadia National Park, it carries ‘everything you need to get you to Acadia, either physically or just in your mind,’ says Jane Sims, co-owner with her husband Dan. You’ll find everything from SmartWool socks and Prana organic cotton tees to Oakley sunglasses and Arcteryx jackets. Also offered: sleep-away camp outfitting, including a full line of tents, sleeping bags, and camping gear.
Whether you’re into hang gliding or just hanging out over a post-yoga latte, this shop has you covered with its brilliant collection of stylish, technologically-advanced, and eco-friendly clothing and gear. You could play tackle a salesperson under the buzzing fluorescent lights of a big-box store to find such sought-after labels as Patagonia, Mountain Hardware, Prana, Birkenstock, Arcteryx, etc. Or you could head to this natural-light-filled store and avail yourself of the friendly advice of owners/outdoor sports enthusiasts Jane and Dan Sims. (Is that even a choice?)
