I make gear shopping easy.

Yup. Even if you are brand new to hiking (or camping…or snowboarding).

Raise your hand if you’ve ever spent hours scrolling for that perfect piece of gear for your next adventure and eventually gave up because you couldn’t decide (or didn’t even know what the heck to look for). 😅

Wanna know a secret? You’re not the first one to feel overwhelmed (and you’re definitely not the last).

But I don’t want you to get stuck down the gear rabbit hole until you give up instead of actually adventuring…that kind of defeats the purpose, right?

So, we’re going to figure out exactly what you need together.

And it’s not going to take hours and hours of researching or going from store to store and finding zilch.

It’s going to be super easy. And fun.


Welcome to Gear Stoke

A VIP Adventure Gear Personal Shopping Experience

My name is Tiffany and though my first experience with camping was less than stellar, over the years I’ve learned that having the right gear is key to an enjoyable experience in the outdoors. 

While I firmly believe that not having the “perfect” gear or the “best” setup shouldn’t keep you from adventuring, I also know that when: 

  • Your feet are cold and wet
  • Your fingers are so cold they’re numb
  • You have blisters before you’ve even hiked 1 mile
  • You bought a “snow jacket” that turned out not to be even a little bit waterproof
  • Your “sleeping pad” is really a glorified pool float

It’s. Freaking. Miserable.

And it doesn’t have to be.

Ready to level up your adventure gear?

If this sounds familiar, I can help:

You have no idea what brands are really best or what features to look for when shopping for gear.


You’re overwhelmed by the number of choices and sheer amount of items you actually need to do the dang thing.


You really want to get out there but wish there was an easy button.

I’ve spent years trying different brands and adventure gear so you don’t have to.

As your outdoor gear personal shopper, I’ll tell you what’s worth it (and what’s not). And if I think it would be better to rent or buy used than buy new, I’ll tell you that too.


I’ve been in your shoes.. and there is a better way!

Soon after we met, I told my (now) husband that I really didn’t like the snow and that I could take or leave camping. He swore up and down that it was just because the gear I had sucked. 

He was right. 🤫

Once I started investing in a few key pieces that were actually designed for the sports and climate we were in, it was a game changer. It took a lot of trial and error with different brands and styles, but eventually, those things I used to avoid actually became fun. And now they’re an integral part of our lives (though I still live for summer and warm adventures 😜). 

That’s why I decided to create this service. So that you can skip all the stress of figuring out what’s important to look for in your gear and what’s worth spending your money on. 

Quality gear is an investment and when you choose the right pieces and brands, they’ll last you for years to come…unless you’re my 14-year-old son who is growing at the speed of light, that is 😅. 



The VIP Gear Stoke is my personal shopper experience that helps you find exactly what you need – quickly and efficiently with the added bonus of my years of experience in the outdoors.

Let’s get down to business

Here is how it works…

Step one

Questionnaire & Gear Consult

You’ll start by filling out a brief questionnaire (for sizing details, etc.) Next, we hop on a video chat about your needs, budget, and preferences.

Step Two

Personalized Gear List

You sit back and relax while I do all the research and send you a curated list of gear. All you have to do is click “add to cart” 🙌 . This is perfect if you’re short on time and just need to know what to get.


I’ll get started on your list and then we’ll come back together to continue the conversation, finalize your list, and give you a chance to ask questions during an optional wrap-up call. This option is ideal if you’d prefer to learn more about the gear you’re purchasing, what to look for in particular items, and increase your confidence when you shop on your own.

With both options, I put together a curated list of gear for your personal needs and situation complete with links to purchase and key details about each choice.

For each item, you’ll have at least two choices to pick from – my top pick for you and an alternate in case of changes in stock, etc.

step three

Continued Access

Have questions that come up about your gear? Need an alternate suggestion for any reason? No worries! You’ll have access to contact me directly to ask follow-up questions as needed via email or voice messaging for 14 days.

FAQ Lightbulb 1


While I LOVE and highly encourage you to shop and support your local stores, they’re going to recommend what they have in their store and not other brands. As I’m not an employee of any brand, I can recommend the products that truly are the best for you from ANY brand.

Have a local store you’d prefer to shop through? Let me know! I’m happy to use them for as many items as possible and supplement from other retailers as needed.

I’m currently accepting bookings for hiking, camping, and snowboarding. Have something outside of these categories? Feel free to ask!

Deep breath. It’s okay! We’ll work through it! I’ll ask you questions to help guide my recommendations – it’ll be fun. Promise!
