Reviews We're Proud Of

Customer for Decades

I have been a customer of Whittaker Mountaineering for decades. This is the place I shop for technical and recreational outdoor gear. Customer service and expertise are beyond belief! I always get the right gear for the right application. They hit it out of the park every time...BRAVO!

Daniel Rogers

Never Oversell

I'm an adventure expert and have used Whittaker for years. Renewing my equipment after excessive use will only be Whittaker-bought. They will never oversell expensive gear, but you get equipped for your needs.

Ted Livingstone

Knowledgeable & Friendly

I came across Whittaker Mountaineering last July when visiting the park. Staff was excellent in both the gear rental area and the shop. Knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. I purchased a jacket this fall and I was notified it was out of stock. Staff went out of their way to recheck inventory and found jacket in a different color. Very impressed. Jacket and other purchases were perfect fit and quality. I am a big fan of this place.

Tess Buescher

My Go-To

Best store for all things mountaineering and outdoor fun. I’ll be attempting a summit of Aconcagua next year and you can bet I’ll be buying gear from Whittaker! My go to for “guide picks” always spot on! Dr. Gene

Gene Gourter

Customer Service

Gloves will be tested in 2 weeks but reviews are overwhelming positive. Most impressive is their customer service. You speak to live folks who are knowledgeable and have a customer-first mentality. Originally ordered wrong size gloves and replaced them and processed the exchange immediately.
