Just Like Papa: A Shop For True Adventurers

Utility wear and equipment for adventure junkies.

Aah, the great outdoors. There’s not much like it. The memories forged – and highs reached – after pitching your first tent, casting the perfect fishing line or scaling an almost-too-narrow cliff face. It’s what keeps us coming back time and again.

Whether you’re embarking on a casual coastal meander, or are preparing to traverse Kilimanjaro, you’ll need the right kit with the right durability – which is where Just Like Papa comes in.

Must love nature

Born out of a love of nature and an insatiable craving for adventure, Just Like Papa was founded in 2016 on centrally located Harrington Street in the East City. A sanctuary for outdoor lovers, Just Like Papa celebrates adventure and the desire to explore our world. As such, all of its products are designed with durability and functionality in mind, so you’re completely prepared for whatever expedition you embark on – no matter how big or small.

Shop your next adventure

Every single product has been tried and tested in order to meet the Just Like Papa criteria. “If it doesn’t meet our quality, durability and functionality standards,” says co-founder Thomas Ferreira, “it has no place at Just Like Papa.”

Whether you prefer to shop in-store or online, you will find everything you need for your next adventure – and we mean everything – at this equipment mecca.
