Ever since Ben moved to the Tetons in 2013, he's been obsessed with hiking, camping, and generally being outdoors in the mountains. He's currently in Colorado, and has climbed 49 of the 58 Colorado 14ers (14,000'+ mountains). He's always been very ambitious with his hiking goals and the ultralight world was helpful in making some of those goals a bit more obtainable. With the Dyneema options on the market being so limited, he learned to sew in late 2018 and started creating his own ultralight gear. His grandparents gave him their Singer 201-2 in the summer of 2019 which has improved his sewing quite a bit. He's just living in the Colorado Rockies having fun sewing and creating gear with fun prints, and he hopes all of you find something you like!

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!
