On the south side of Zhushikou Dongdajie lies an outdoor outfit shop called Tu Bu Tian Xia, which means "Hike around the World". This newly-opened shop features the American brand "The First Outdoor", or TFO for short.
After the shop assistant greeted me, she told me that the brand comes from Delaware. Products include hiking boots, outdoor sportswear, backpacks, tents, and sleeping bags. They are all developed and produced according to American standard.
According to the shop assistant, a featured product at the shop was the brown hiking boots, which features four patents of the brand: TFO-Waterproof, First-Grip, First-Tex, and First-Comfort. Upon examination, I found that it look very firm and wearable. The sticker price was RMB 1099. But if you simply ask the shop assistant, she can usually give you a 20 percent discount. I personally liked the green double-layer outdoor jacket (RMB 1269 before discount), which was made from waterproof and ventilated fabric.
You could also join the Tu Bu Tian Xia Camping Club here, to take part in organized activities with fellow outdoorsmen.
