About Us

I retired from the U.S. Army in Aug 2011 with over 30 years of service. With my experience and knowledge of the Military equipment, in February 2012 I decided to open “Take It Outside” to allow those of you “outdoor enthusiasts” the opportunity to get your hands on the same high quality and affordably priced merchandise that the Military used and still uses today. Practically all of the equipment made for the military is “Made in America”.

Take It Outside handles Military Surplus Equipment along with Camping, Backpacking, and Hiking Supplies. We hope to be adding Climbing and Repelling Supplies at a later time.

After 4 years in our original location we needed more space for our inventory. So in March 2016 we moved next door to a building twice the size. We really want to thank all of our many repeat customers as well as our new customers  who shop with us for their Military and Outdoor supplies.

We honestly value and appreciate your business and will always strive to make customer service our highest priority. Our goal is to earn and build your confidence in us with every purchase you make. If you ever have any questions or concerns about anything in regards to Take It Outside, please contact us either by phone or email. We will make every effort to respond as soon as possible, however please allow up to 48 hours on Weekends and Holidays.

Thank you for your interest in Take It Outside
