Everest is a non-discriminatory platform for hunters, shooting sports enthusiasts, anglers, campers and hikers across the country, linking consumers and retailers with a robust marketplace where they can interact, participate, contribute, learn, transact, and give back.
As a significant number of merchants make a mass exodus from other online marketplaces, Everest is disrupting the outdoor retail landscape by creating a robust community for outdoorsmen and women where they can live their passions. At time of launch, the Everest marketplace has already secured 500-plus merchants offering more than 500,000 outdoor and shooting sports products. It is estimated by the end of 2020, Everest will offer more than 1 million-plus products from retailers and manufacturers from around the globe.

Importantly, Everest will give back to philanthropic programs and outdoor industry initiatives that reflect the issues important to the Everest community such as conservation, veterans service organizations, cancer support and firearms safety.
