First off, all of us at Garage Grown Gear and Backpacker Magazine want to thank you for entering the 2021 Ultralight Giveaway! Your participation is monumental in helping us spread the word about the small, startup, and cottage outdoor companies we sell in our online store and feature in our online magazine.
Without further ado... CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS!!!
First Place: Meg Skeehan Second Place: Katie Melsky Third Place: Joseph Batir Fourth Place: Chad Huskie
You will need top lightweight gear to hike places like the The Stairway to Heaven hike on Oahu, Hawaii, (also known as the Haiku Stairs). A grueling 3,922 stairs that lead up the imposing mountain ridge, often at an almost vertical incline, with only a handrail to catch you from falling into the valley below. Others like those in the Andes Mountains, long thru hikes for the Triple Crown of the PCT, CDT, and AT are a perfect fit for the gear you have assembled here.
We all very much appreciate your help in supporting the hiking community all these years.
Good luck to everyone entering and safe travels.
I am preparing to through hike the JMT next year and winning this price will help greatly!!! Good luck everybody!!!
I would love to with this give away it’s my dream to thru hike the AT!
Fingers crossed 🤞🙂
thank you for the chance
What great prizes!
I shall win
Well done on this promotional contest!
I’ve looked up all the things and spreadsheet the info just in case I am lucky enough to win. I wanted to see what would be improved in my pack (everything!)
While gathering all the info I ended up buying some items that aren’t listed as prizes in the contest. Justifying it as buying things I already “need” while boosting my entries. And I also have a list of items I’d like to get if I am not lucky enough to win. Looking at you Dandee Packs, and you Purple rain adventure skirts!!!

I’m dreaming of winning this 😃🤗🙌
I love giveaways — maybe someday one will love me back?
Just remember John Muir would go out with a blanket and a roll of bread as his gear. Just saying.
Wow….looking forward to getting out there.
As a retired senior have moved into a RV needed to sell my old heavy gear some time ago after moving from a stick and motor life to this, this would help me to get out more to the great out doors
This would be epic! Good luck everyone!
Wow that would really help me get my family out in the wilderness and away from the stressful life were in.
Wonderful prizes! As a senior citizen who had knee surgery this past winter, it would really help to have some lighter equipment.
Awesome giveaway! And it’s nice to see so many great organizations supporting other great organizations!
great quality gear. I use mine all the time

Crossing my fingers…. (◕‿◕✿)
arrggghh!!!! My knees are barking tonight. oooo it’s going to be flipping like a pancake to get comfortable.
This would totally elevate our time outdoors as a family!
You have wonderful items
If only us black people knew how to hike
This is a great mix of products, especially up here in the western part of the Rockies where the mountains meet the desert. The varied terrain and micro climates make these items essential here.
Stellar/would be honored to win. Veteran and recent widow.
Very generous and a great way to promote hiking and the outdoors. Too many people seem to think reality tv is exercise. :)
