Plenty of outfits provide rental gear and clothing for outdoor adventure, but the new website Bold Betties Outfitters (www.boldbettiesoutfitters.com) stands out because it specifically addresses women.

Whether you like to try before you buy, or you want to save money while gearing up for a trip, you can visit the Bold Betties site and rent gear and clothing for adventure travel, backpacking, camping, hiking, climbing and paddlesports, according to a report by the Adventure Travel Trade Association.

“As many companies in the outdoor and adventure travel industries typically target males or the hardcore outdoor enthusiast, Bold Betties Outfitters supports the ‘average’ woman in her quest for adventure by reducing the cost of getting outfitted and eliminating the intimidation factor of mammoth camping and sporting goods stores,” the ATTA reported.

“Bold Betties was born out of my desire to empower women to live experiences that build their confidence, reinforce their independence, and create long-lasting, positive female relationships.  Getting outside and seeing the world has done that for me,” Niki Koubourlis, CEO and founder of Bold Betties Outfitters, told the ATTA. “One of my main goals with Bold Betties is to increase female participation in adventure travel and outdoor recreation by breaking down the existing barriers of cost, intimidation and misconception.”

The Bold Betties site, which is in Beta mode, also includes a blog with gear reviews and travel tips, and it will eventually include a forum. Plus, the site has packing lists for adventure travel, backpacking, camping and overnight kayaking.

The website actually grew out of a Bold Betties Meetup Group that Koubourlis helped form in Denver in April. Including women ranging in age from 24 to 65, the group has more than 400 members.
