Preparing for the playa is serious business: It takes a lot more planning and preparation than you'd think to run around naked in the desert for a week. Before you hit the road, it'd be wise to hit up this Mockingbird Lane emporium that stocks a glorious combination of outdoorsy essentials (think hydration backpacks, space-saving super-absorbent towels, water bottles with built-in filters and bandanas in every color of the rainbow, for protecting your mug from those pesky dust storms) and weirdly awesome stuff you never knew you needed, from octopus kites and faux-fur tails for your iPhone to metallic Birkenstocks and furry trapper hats.

My Voice Nation Help

Yeah, "Whole Earth Provisions is the best place to go shopping for burning man!" said no one who actually goes to burning man, ever.

Maybe you guys should poll some burners about where we shop. This review has all of the credibility of one of those really inane "best of" buzzfeed posts. Do you actually think that we all go to the most expensive store for survival gear to get our supplies for a 2 week vacation that we travel 1,300 miles to get to?

I'll clue you in: We don't.

Most burners use a bunch of different stores online to buy things for cheap, and make 3 or 4 walmart trips for last minute things they keep remembering on their way in to the event. Going to Whole Earth Provisions for Burning Man gear is like going to going to Armani Exchange for all of your clothes: You can do it if you are really rich and you completely lack any amount of creativity.
