We have visited the outlet in Essex and every time we are greeted with dog treats and a very enthusiastic staff. They encourage your pup to join you in the dressing room and have a large selection of dog items to choose from (pricey, but same caliber as LL Bean).

We went to the Orvis flagship store today in Burlington, VT and what a beautiful store. Just a feast for the eyes, laid out beautifully and a fabulous array of clothing, fishing tacle and home goods. Comfy chairs by the Fire, friendly well-behaved dogs and incredibly helpful sales staff. Sarah, one of the sales associates, was especially helpful. The free... More

Every year we visit Manchester for the foliage, we go to Orvis, sometimes we will shop there twice in one week. There are very few bargains there, but we don't go there looking only for bargains. Orvis offers quality clothing. We only buy if we see something that simply stands out as practical and well made. In spite of prices,... More

Stopped at the flagship Orvis Store just to browse because I didn't really need more equipment. Would have liked to do the tour of the fly rod factory but didn't get there in time. Store had lots of fly fishing equipment and outdoor gear, most of which is upscale and pricey. It is located near the Battenkill River. The best... More

Know for their fishing gear and clothing, both urban and outdoor. The quality is very good and the selection varies from common to very interesting. I bought a sweater and shirt, which I could have found elsewhere. Try your hand at fishing their trout pond. Use one of their exceptional rods for something unique. I am a "Sage" guy myself.

A tad disappointing. Very few real bargains. Good quality items but hoped for more sizes available, ie: I could purchase many shorts as long as they were size 10, (I'm not!). Sales folks helpful. Hoped for so much more.

Orvis is a great company. Their return policy awesome. I bought a 200 floating net that we love. BUT-- in this town of Factory mark down shops, don't expect that here. I've been here plenty of times. There's always braggarts buying the store to look like "fly- fisherman" on their next junket. I keep my many fishing expeditions to myself.... More

Just an amazingly beautiful store. They had some great sales going on, and they welcomed our pup. They offer fly fishing activities for kids on site

Orvis is is definitely a place to visit if you are interested in fly fishing. The store is like a treasure trove for fly fisher women and man. You will feel like a kid in a candy store. If you have the time checkout their fly fishing school. The fly fishing 101 course with them is free and it worth... More

Definitely make time to feed the fish in the pond behind the store. It is a treat for small children!
