Amidst the fashionable boutiques and galleries of San Francisco's Hayes Valley lies an unexpected resource for outdoor apparel and accessories, but don't expect to find brightly colored down jackets and apre-ski goods lining the racks. What you will find are designs that have created a loyal following not only from outdoor enthusiasts, but also from many of the world's most elite special forces.
Since 1997, Triple Aught Design has been serving the needs of their customers from their e-tail unit online and from their retail outpost inside their warehouse-slash-headquarters. Their Hayes Valley location is their first standalone brick and mortar storefront and once inside you'll find an immaculately Apple-like interior filled wall to wall with their all-weather shells, knits, bags, and accessories. Its enough gear to fill a Tom Clancy novel and maybe live it too. 551 Hayes St, San Francisco, CA, 866-613-1386 - Link
