As the seasons change, it’s inevitable we have to start putting away the shorts and flip-flops and digging out the jeans, boots and sweatshirts. Of course, here on Hilton Head Island, the temperatures stay mild through fall and we regularly have 70-degree days throughout winter. So we can hang onto those flip-flops just a bit longer and even bring out the shorts here and there :) .

We’ve recently gotten some fashionable and trendy apparel in store here at Hilton Head Outfitters … just in case your wardrobe needs a bit of an update for fall and winter!

Spirit Jerseys

Spirit Jerseys have caught on over the last year and are especially popular for showing your pride in your favorite sports team or even sorority or fraternity. Now, you can show your “spirit” for Hilton Head Island with these fun jerseys in blue and pink. Wear them over a shirt or on their own depending on the weather.

Southern Style

Show off your “Southern Style” with these super cute T-shirts in a variety of colors featuring bikes with bows! Biking is one of our favorite things to do here on Hilton Head with so many miles of paved bike paths and we can’t think of a better thing to wear while pedaling around the island. You can even wear them back home to show your love for Hilton Head Island.

We’ve got even more colors available for sweatshirts, including gray, red, bright blue, navy blue, pink, green and gray. Something for everyone!

Hilton Head OutfittersTo help you with your Hilton Head Island vacation planning, we recently updated the Hilton Head Outfitters website to make reserving your equipment rentals in advance even simpler. Now, you can book everything from Hilton Head bike rentals to beach chairs with just a couple clicks of the mouse.

Go to the home page of our updated website at www.HiltonHeadOutfitters.com, and on the right hand side, you’ll find our new reservation system. Simply choose from bike rentals, kayak or canoe rentals, surfboard or paddleboard rentals, or beach chair and umbrella rentals. If you select “equipment” in the system, that will show you items, such as bike baskets, helmets and tag-a-long bikes for kids.

Select the dates you’ll need the items and the length of time, and you’ll be able to see what’s available and at what price. Then, you’ll add the items you’d like to reserve to your online shopping cart and then check out.

Reserving items like bikes ahead of time is important, especially during weekends and busier seasons on Hilton Head Island when we sometimes sell out of some rentals. Not only will you be assured a bike or kayak or beach chair will be waiting for you upon your arrival, but it’s one less thing you’ll need to worry about on your vacation.

You can also reserve your bikes via our mobile site if you’d prefer to do your booking on your smart phone or tablet device. Simply text BIKE to 843-627-0007 to get a link to the mobile booking site. One more tip for you: if you “like” us on Facebook, you can get a special promo code to save 15% on your total bike order.
