Bonfus is a small family business founded in 2019 by siblings Niccolo and Stefania Bonfadini, a civil and industrial engineer respectively. They've shared a strong passion for the outdoors since a young age. While venturing in the mountains they began, as many outdoorspeople do, with the standard, mass-produced and heavy equipment found at local stores, but they were never satisfied with what the market offered. They therefore started, initially as a hobby, to create their own ultralight equipment: quilts, down jackets, tents, packs, winter anoraks and various other accessories. The years passed, their skills in developing and sewing new gear got more refined, and they finally decided to found Bonfus to share their products with other outdoors enthusiasts that value lightweight equipment as a way to enjoy being out in Nature.
Bonfus believes that ultralight equipment can help you enjoy your adventures, because a lighter and smaller pack makes it easier to cover greater distances with less energy and strain on your body. They hope that with their products they can inspire more people to get out there.
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!
