Based out of Madison, Wisconsin, Alien Outdoor Gear is a single person cottage company started by Brandon York. Inspired by a silly name that he and friends called their hiking group, Aliens, Brandon wanted to honor his friends and all that they learned together with Alien Outdoor Gear.
They are dedicated to providing high quality ultralight backpacks and accessories to make your next backcountry adventure a little bit more enjoyable without sacrificing durability. Every piece of gear is handcrafted and made to last through the grueling elements that we face in the outdoors.

I love this shop! I am a repeat offender. Such an easy process to purchase items here. I love to use the “filter” button to narrow down what I need, whether it is a brand or an item under $20. I honestly think you could outfit yourself for a hike just thru this site- so cool! Quick shipping and my favorite part … I love getting my personalized note from GGG crew members. Such an awesome touch. Keep up the amazing job GGG!!🧡
Hands-, feet-, head-, whatever- down, simply the best. You just can't do much better than GGG. The positivity is welcomed and infectious. From the descriptions of the products, the interactions on emails, the little notes on the receipts, the fast service, the QUALITY of the products... I have only good vibes for these guys. And I must have about 5 of those teeny tiny toothbrushes :-D Cheers!!!
Garage Grown Gear is such a wonderful shop for any ultralight backpacking enthusiast looking to support small companies! Their staff are so friendly and helpful, they ship very quickly, and they always have awesome gear from awesome little companies. They also provide all kinds of helpful information and fun reading materials in their newsletters. I recommend this place to all of my friends and I recommend them to you as well!
