Regardless of where you backpack, anything you set on the ground in your campsite is likely to get wet, dirty, muddy, dusty, or sticky with pine needles. It's particularly rare in the Pacific Northwest to find a campsite with a flat rock, and setting your stove or coffee mug on a log is an invitation for disaster. Other backpacking tables on the market weigh a minimum of 12 ounces, too heavy for most people to justify carrying in their pack.
Jim bought one of those tables but it never made the "final cut" when other comfort items like a book and camp chair made reducing pack weight a priority. After waiting 20 years for a lightweight table option, Jim tested multiple materials and designs and made 20+ prototypes before finally being satisfied with the backpacking table you see on these pages. Friends and family encouraged Jim to make the table available to others in the backpacking community, and Cascade Wild was born.

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!
