OUR SCHOOL IS OLD SCHOOL
Get Lost was founded by two friends who were raised to believe that an adventure-driven life is a life well lived. The look and content of our store is a tribute to this upbringing. We grew up when camping was lo-tech and maps didn’t tell you what to do. We remember the smell of old canvas tents and a time when the best rain gear was a plastic bag. In those days, phones were attached to walls, “selfie” wasn’t a word yet, and tweets were what birds did, not people.
We have nothing against technology. It’s an inescapable part of our modern world. But we also know that the richest experiences, the ones that truly matter, don’t happen when we’re plugged in or online. Spend time outside. Value friends and family. Keep it simple. This is how we were raised, and these are the principles that guide us.
Our mission is to inspire people to push away from the desk and get lost—lost in a faraway place, in the flicker of a campfire, or wherever adventure takes them. We believe adventure works as a counterpoint. A slow to the fast. A signal in the noise. An alternative to the glowing screens.

Get Lost is a salute to anyone who shares our philosophy, it’s a thank you to the people who taught us the meaning of adventure, and it’s a raised glass to anyone who puts away the phone and listens to the call of the wild.
THERE’S NOWHERE TO GO BUT EVERYWHERE
So unplug. Forget the map and wander. Be a stranger in a far-off place. Take a long flight to anywhere. Discover what’s down the road or over the next hill. Go ahead and get lost for a while. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
