Before I start talking about GuyStoreUSA, let’s address the elephant in the room: why’s a chick writing about a site for dudes? I’m clearly not the target audience for this company, but rest assured because this chick grew up in a house with five brothers.
That’s not to say that being a woman without brothers makes you incapable of writing about cool stuff for guys, and, to be honest, I’m a little skeptical of the whole idea of “guy stuff” in the first place, but it does give me an extra edge. While I wasn’t the one playing sports and doing all kinds of weird stuff outside, I was definitely around it all the time.
Now that’s out of the way, let’s dive in to the Guy Store, shall we?
Front and Center
Let’s start with the landing page. Across the top of the screen, under the tabs, there are pictures of dudes doing outdoorsy things: white water rafting, rock climbing, camping. You see them and think, oh, badass! I totally want to be that guy braving the elements! What tools do I need to make that happen?
Lucky for you, the tools you need are right below the photos. They’ve got crazy scopes, knives of all varieties, tents, and even an axe right there for your viewing pleasure. Even better? All the prices are marked down, so that badass bow that was originally $681.63? Totally a steal at $484.16.
Searchable and Personal
If you’re not totally sure what you’re looking for, you have a few options for browsing. The site allows you to search by popular brand, brands in general, categories, and price. And, of course, there’s always the handy search bar if all of those options don’t serve you well.
For those of you who prefer the personal touch, there’s a chat option. When I first opened it, it seemed like someone was there and ready to talk to me but I took too long pondering what I wanted to ask them. When I came back there was a note saying they weren’t there, but would “love” to talk another time, along with a space to put my email and name.
Looks like these guys are on top of it.
And the added bonus?
I don’t know how it’s possible for you to not be sold on t yet, but if that’s the case, dig a little deeper on the site and you’ll find Cool Stuff For Guys at the bottom of the screen. There you’ll find articles that allow you to vicariously live the outdoor life, even as you sit in front of your computer screen.
With titles like “Life-Saving Knife Scenarios,” and “Bear Safety While Camping and Hunting,” these articles provide tips that you’ll be hard pressed to find elsewhere. Also, they totally lend the founders major street (wilderness?) cred.
Basically, GuyStoreUSA is your one stop shop for your next wild and crazy wilderness adventure. Or, if you’re not an outdoor kinda guy yourself, there are definitely some unique gift ideas here. Who doesn’t want a Heavy Duty Warthog with Sheath for Christmas?
