Sports & Outdoors in Kitsilano & University of British Columbia

Divided between Vancouver's best selection of guidebooks and travel literature (plus maps) on one side and a huge array of luggage, backpacks and travel accessories on the other, the chatty, ever-friendly staffers here have been inspiring itchy feet for years. Peruse the money belts and mosquito nets, then wonder how you ever traveled without quick-drying underwear.

Check out the vintage guidebooks on display here, including some very early Lonely Planet Shoestring titles.
