After promoting garage-based outdoor companies, Garage Grown Gear is throwing itself into the retail market with some very unique offerings.
No they’re not selling skis. GGG is partnering with some of the companies they’ve promoted in the past to create some unique colab products including summer work gloves, a minimalist day pack, and trucker hats by artist Abby Paffrath.
Our favorite piece is easily the pack, which reminds us of our favorite Life-Link models from days of old. The Souped Up 25L Pack by Superior Wilderness Designs is only 14 oz and boasts a burly yet lightweight build.

About Garage Grown Gear
Several years ago I got deeply involved in the sport of packrafting. I was in awe of these lightweight, inflatable boats. I started looking at maps in a new way, seeing rivers as travel corridors, rather than obstacles. But, more importantly, I started looking at my outdoor gear in a new way.
Here were these crazy cool, innovative boats basically created out of a garage. What else like that is out there, I wondered. And, so my journey began. I obsessively pored over blogs, combed through forums, and stopped random passersby to ask about their gear.
Before long I found myself on a mission: to become the expert on outdoor gear startups … and share my beta with you.
We’ve grown from my kitchen counter to a kick @$$ team of four people. But what hasn’t changed is that mission.
Welcome to Garage Grown Gear.
