NOLS: National Outdoor Leadership School Home

NOLS Preferred Retailers are specialized outdoor stores around the country that are familiar with NOLS and the equipment that we use on our courses (many of the employees are even NOLS graduates!) These stores have access to the NOLS equipment lists and can answer your questions about proper uses and fit of equipment.

Preferred retailers also carry the full "NOLS Library" including Wilderness Mountaineering, Soft Paths, Wilderness Medicine, Wilderness Guide, NOLS Cookery, Wilderness Wisdom, Wilderness Ethics, Wilderness Navigation, Winter Camping, and of course the most recent NOLS catalog.
