Traditionally, outdoor gear's so lacking in style it couldn't get you a bj from a bear. Not that you wanted one anyway. Whatever, have fun with your salmon, bear. Focusing on more fashionable functional-wear, Relativity Outdoors.
Given a rustic feel via reclaimed-wood counters and tree stump seating, Relativity's a nature-loving boutique specializing in actually good-looking nature-wear -- the dream of an ex-Urban Outfitters manager who caught the adventure bug early during Central America excursions with his Honduran mom when other kids were sitting around listening to Hon-Duran Duran. Though anchored by big names (Columbia Titanium, Manastash hemp outerwear), the bulk're smaller makers not carried elsewhere in Dallas, including shirts/pants/jackets by Portland "sustainable fashion" outfitters Nau, mountain-tested outerwear from the UK's Montane, Merino wool base layers by Sweden's Termo Swed, and eco-nice organic tees & sweats by California's World Minded -- though if you want to be governor, you'd better be Olympia-minded, six times. Footwear ranges from hardcore cold-stompers by Portland's Sorel to hikers by Italy's Gronell; spring'll also bring the likes of Sanuk sandals and Vibram barefoot styles (but not Redfoot styles, because who wants to wear something that's boned Stephen Baldwin?).
Relativity's resplendent in equipment, too, from ultralight backpacks by England's Terra Nova to micro-stoves by Jetboil. Come spring, they'll also host regular skills classes (orienteering, survival tech) and group adventures to the Hill Country and the Ouachitas -- where the black bear population's made an inspiring comeback, meaning more opportunities for your inspiring come-ons.
