If you're serious about camping, hiking or mountain climbing, TPSS has you covered with top brand names in clothing, tools and paraphernalia that the most avid hikers and climbers rely on. Because the store is run by outdoor enthusiasts, the staff can give you advice on what you need for any adventure you wish to undertake. This includes the pros and cons of their equipment, based on personal experience, and assistance in finding the perfect fit for you.
Starting out can be a bit pricey, with the cost of getting fully kitted out ranging from about NT$20,000 to NT$30,000 for complete sets of gear (including jackets, proper footwear, bags, cooking gear, etc.). However, if you just need a few items, sleeping bags start at NT$1500, and tents at around NT$3000. You can also find last season's coats, shirts and pants on sale for as much as 70% off listed prices too, if you're looking to cut costs a little. --By Daniel White
