I recently moved to Boston, and now that I'm living in a city I find myself extra grateful for any opportunity that leads me directly into nature. For the past 4.5 years, I lived in an area surrounded by small mountains, woods, trails, and farms.

But even in the city, there are always going to be at least a handful of nearby outdoor activities which won't cost a whole lot of money.

With brands such as Camelbak, Gerber, Danner and Altama Footwear, Brigade Quartermasters has become a favorite of many people whom have the need for action gear.
