About Us

Bivouac was founded in 1970 by Ed Davidson while a senior at University of Iowa. In 1971 Ed left Iowa City and opened the Ann Arbor store. Originally Bivouac was an army surplus store which has evolved to sell a unique mix of Men’s and Women's clothing and gear.

We hire only the most experienced and knowledgeable staff. Our goal is to match the customer with the right product for their needs.

And to answer the most asked question of all..."Bivouac" means temporary campsite and can be used as a noun or verb.
