We just spent 10 days in Cody on vacation. We stopped in sunlight for some advice on local trails. The staff was more than willing to spend time finding out what kind of hikes we were looking for and gave us great advice. Mind you I told them right off I wasnt going to buy anything. During our ten day vacation we stopped in there probably four times to talk about different trails and great places to hike. Almost every time there was different employee but always just as enthusiastic and knowledgeable as the other. I did buy a few last minute camping supplies and found there prices to be competitive to any outdoor store. Best part was when I asked for advice the employees never recommended the most expensive product. Bottom line, if you visit the area and plan on doing any camping or hiking youll have a much better experience if you stop in at Sunlight. Youll get advice from people who hike and camp these places and giving you first hand experiencences.

Great store. The true specialty outdoor store in Cody - the people who work here are friendly and knowledgeable. There is a big difference between this shop and Sierra Trading - while everything at Sierra is on sale( and you can find some good bargains) you have to wade through racks of Carharts, dress shop clothes and stuff that no one would buy at full price to get to them. Not at Sunlight Sports. They have really nice gear. We shop there for our hiking and ski stuff. My son started backpacking this year, and the staff at this store took time to get him set up with the perfect pack, tent and gear. Super experience. The clothes here are also to die for. I especially love all of the cute Patagonia that they carry. My favorite store in Cody.
Sunlight Sports is the model for what a local sporting goods shop can be. They provide spot-on advice for getting into the backcountry; hold community gatherings and outdoor skills workshops for the public; fund raise for local nonprofits; and volunteer their staff for community events that get novices outdoors. All this and they sell the newest and highest quality sporting goods around. In short, they are the cultural center for local and visiting climbers, hikers, skiers and backpackers in the region. If you think the highest quality gear is too expensive, then there are other local chain stores that will sell you poor quality or ill-fitting goods at a lower price.

Simply put, awful. Grossly overpriced to take advantage of their being one of only a few sports stores in the area. The staff is arrogant and rude. I have lived in Jackson and Cody for 41 years, know these mountains inside and out, and the info they gave me would have gotten me in serious trouble had I followed it. This store promotes itself as a center for adventure in the Yellowstone area...the only adventure is trying to repair your credit card balance after paying far too much for the same gear you can get at REI for much, much less. I would advise avoiding this trap of a money-hungry, misleading, hole of a store at all costs.
I met my instructor from Jackson Hole Mountain Guides here and have since purchased some rock climbing equipment. The staff ordered in two pair of shoes yo make sure one would be the perfect fit and helped me find a harness to fit. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. They even fixed my sunglasses, free of charge.
I love this store! Im not very outdoorsy but when I need something (or to rent) this is the place I love to go. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful and I feel confident that what they suggest is the right choice. I have never left there unhappy with my transaction.
Extremely helpful and friendly staff. We werent planning on doing any climbing in Cody, but we stopped by and they gave us all of the info that we needed. They werent pushy on selling us any gear and welcomed us.
Not only do they have all the outdoor toys and all the great knowledge to go with those toys, but they create a space and culture that makes everyone feel a part of a great community. Thanks Sunlight Sports!
Super nice outdoor store with a good selection of gear and clothes. Right in the middle of downtown Cody.
One of the best outdoor stores in Wyoming! Great selection, knowledgeable staff.
