Mountaineering and outdoor shops in the Philippines

As a quick and useful guide to trekkers all over the country, we are compiling this directory of outdoor shops in the Philippines. This directory is initially divided into three pages: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

1) Mountaineering and outdoor shops in Luzon and NCR

2) Mountaineering and outdoor shops in the Visayas

3) Mountaineering and outdoor shops in Mindanao

NEW: we've just created a potentially very useful page:
4) Tent and backpack repair centers in the Philippines

Everyone is invited to include their store to this directory of mountaineering and outdoor shops by commenting on the category page where their store falls under. There are no requirements; just send in your store name, contact details, and URL.

Hi,I'd like to ask the contributors of this post to advise us on where to procure white gas (naphtha), the most common liquid fuel for camping stoves, at the following locales: Davao, Cagayan de Oro-Malaybalay, General Santos, and Bacolod. The most common brand is Sure Flash lighter fluid, a red 120cc plastic container shaped like the ones used for sewing machine oil and cost about 20 pesos each.

I had a hard time looking for fuel at the hardware shops during a recent trip to South Cotabato and ended up buying Zippo lighter fluid at a Gaisano mall. Those were some of the most expensive meals I had for the two days that followed. I believe my club would need a lot of this type fuel when our inductees fly down to Davao during Halloween, since flammable liquids and canisters are banned on both planes and ferries. Butane canisters are easier to procure in cities with big malls it turns out. Thanks much.

sir cecil this is a good idea. i think i should also set up a subpage that will provide info on where fuel can be bought. a lot of climbers (myself included) are still dependent in butane so i should really put this up ^^

cecil, this is reynold of AMOS. i've been using white gas for almost ten yeras now and we discover that UNLEADED gasoline is equivalent to white gas. but you should ensure that your burner is capable to burn this. but MSR and Coleman exponent are some of the widely use white gas burner and both i used those and compatible to burn UNLEADED gasoline.
God bless bro!

Anyone else has experience with their MSR classic running with unleaded gas?please share your experience.

Hi there, have any of you tried using methanol based fuel gels? One that's used by caterers in heating chaffing dishes.

nowadays using gasoline as alternative for white gas is acceptable and enjoyed by many co-mountaineers.

Hi! Im new to this hobby and I would like to support our local manufacturers as much as possible. What are the local brands that are available in the market nowadays? I only know of Sandugo, Sideout, Apexxus, and Brown Trekker. I saw some Lagalag and Pittman brands too at ROX. Are they good? I have invested on a Sandugo shoe and a Technopack 55L bag which I bought from SM. The latter I got it on sale. >_< I'm still gearing up and my first major climb next year will be Mt. Pulag via Akiki trail. Thanks guys.
