Hi! I'm Charlie, Rochester native and General Manager of the Rochester Moosejaw.

I am excited to be back in the Mitten after spending the past decade lost in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. When I'm not guarding the rabid, laser-wielding jackalopes from escaping the backroom of our store, you can find me outside skiing, sailing, biking, climbing, golfing and generally appreciating the great outdoors (i.e. sitting on my porch enjoying a cold drink).

I love broccoli and intensely dislike Maroon 5. I once treaded water for three days in a row. I play a mean bluegrass cello and have been known to cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes.Occasionally, my two dogs Logan and Jemma grant me a break from being their Frisbee-chucking slave.

If you ever find yourself near our store, please stop by for a high five. I love a good high five! Plus, those are free.

Get to know Moosejaw, Rochester

Our Moosejaw shop in The Village of Rochester Hills is located on the northeast corner of Walton and Adams. Coincidentally, I used to have two gerbils named Walton and Adam. Not really. Their names were actually Walter and Beatrice. But I digress, I feel like we've gotten off on the wrong foot here. I don't normally go around trying to trick people. So please believe me when I say that our Rochester shop has the friendliest, most sincere, and most knowledgeable staff around and they will not pull any kind of shenanigans when offering you advice on gear/apparel that you require to suit all of your outdoor needs.
The goods are coming. Stay tuned.

Rochester is the jacket capital of Michigan. That's not true. However, we do carry a lot of different jackets. We carry a lot of different brands as well as styles. For walking around downtown Rochester, we recommend a fleece by Patagonia or The North Face Although, a water-proof jacket may be a good idea if that suede vest you're wearing is prone to rain damage. If you decide to go frolic in Rochester Park, you may need a heavier down coat by Marmot, Arc'teryx or Mountain Hardwear. Wrapping a kitten around your neck will also keep you warm, but we don't recommend that because we sell jackets.

Apples are really big here in Rochester. They dedicate a whole weekend to them during Arts and Apples Fest every summer. I'm not joking. I heard something about how one a day will keep the doctor away, but that seems far-fetched. My foot doctor told me that keeping shoes on my feet is a more logical way to stay out of his office.

Lucky for you, we have a huge variety of shoes. Moosejaw carries a wide range of styles and brands for both the trail and the track. My favorites include Sanuk, Reef, and Keen. Stop in to our shop in Rochester to visit our knowledgeable staff or just to get a nice foot rub. But don't tell them I sent you.

Climbing? More like clim-bling. The wide array of precious and unique brands like Black Diamond, Arc'teryx, Petzl, Metolius, and Mammut will have you lookin', feelin', and climbin' like a million bucks. Before you hop in your G-6 and head to your favorite rock wall, make sure to stop into our Rochester shop for some chapstick. No one likes chapped lips.

Other than the brands above, we carry other climbing equipment like - the finest belay devices, a huge range of carabiners, helmets, ropes, and did I mention chapstick? While you're picking up all the necessities, send one of our shop peeps to get you a milkshake from Red Knapps Dairy Bar. You'll thank us later.

Backpacking is considered an art form in Rochester. People take it pretty seriously. Artists come from around the world - Bangkok, Florence, and even Kalamazoo - to see the backpackers of Rochester, Michigan.

However, the truth is our packs are really beautiful. Our Rochester staff and custys agree, there is nothing like the silhouette of a top-loading daypack on a burly gent (or Pretty) disappearing into the sunset.

Whether you're headed down the road for a day hike at Stony Creek, or through hiking the AT, we've got you covered. Our Rochester shop is chock full with the backpacking gear of your dreams. Everything from Jetboil cooking supplies to the best and brightest packs from Osprey, Gregory and Arc'teryx, our good-looking staff won't let you forget anything.

A night at the Rochester Mills Brewing Company can get messy. After a heated debate on the season finale of Lost over a few Milkshake Stouts, I've gone through two, three... fourteen outfits in one night. Some call that excessive, but I call it thinking ahead.

When you walk into our Rochester shop, you will notice a wide variety of clothing and brands. We've picked the best from Patagonia, Lole, Prana, The North Face and Mountain Khakis. Wherever you're going or for whatever you're doing, you're sure to find something here.

When nature calls, you have to be ready. Thankfully, Moosejaw sells everything you need for those quick changes. From badass down jackets to base layers, women's outerwear to men's underwear, swimwear to footwear, you'll never have to worry about your two, three or fourteen quick changes again.
