Here's what our customers are saying!

This place is amazing. I have literally gotten a greeting from every employee and been offered help from everyone. Employees go above and beyond for customers & offered us everything from water to coffee while we shopped...


Excellent staff explained all features of ski jackets we purchased. Charlie was very helpful fitting my entire family. You get what you pay for and more. The entire experience was an enjoyable one.

Best assortment of outdoor gear I have found in this city. They helped me select a new day pack. The sales people were familiar with the outdoor activities in the area. There was some cool nature photography upstairs.

The Backpacker in Lafayette is the foremost outfitter in the region. The selection of outdoor gear and apparel is excellent and the customer service is second to none. Can't wait to go back.

Great store and even better staff. Everyone is so helpful, and I can always find something I love when I come in to shop.


Lots of big name cold weather gear offered here. Many staff members for such a small store. Loved digging around in here.
