    Garage Grown Gear

    We're an e-commerce store and online magazine that puts the spotlight on small and startup outdoor gear brands. We help early stage companies connect to a community of people who are passionate about supporting the little guys, and using the coolest, most innovative new gear out there. And we help customers find an alternative to mass-produced, big box outdoor gear, apparel and food. 

    The brands we work with got their start after someone thought, “wouldn’t it be cool if …” and began tinkering with the idea (often in a garage). We get to know these people and test their gear – and then share our top shelf finds with you. Everything sold through GGG has been vetted and hand-selected. 

    We're real people who care a whole heck of a lot about you, our customers. If you're unhappy, we're unhappy. If you have any questions or concerns (or just want to give us a high five), we'd love to hear from you. We can be reached at [email protected] or through the Live Chat on our website.

    Lloyd Vogel - Likes Gear. Lots of it.



    Lloyd was born and raised in the booming metropolis of Milwaukee, Wisconsin! He discovered his love of kayaking along the shores of Lake Michigan, and spends his ever diminishing free time kayaking, backpacking, playing ultimate frisbee, and eating disproportionally large meals.

    Lloyd got his start in business through Big Outdoors, which merged with Garage Grown Gear in March 2017. Prior to that he was a special education teacher. While the world of startups and education are plenty different, a background in herding kittens has helped him in both professional pursuits. He's the guy on our chat feature, our 1 midwesterner, and our token redhead. 

    Favorite piece of trail gear?
     The Hiker fanny pack by Thru. Hands down. Nothing keeps you more organized and more fashionable. You won’t catch me on trail without it!”

      

     

    Amy Hatch – Geeks out on content marketing

    Amy got her start in business when she launched Jackson Hole Packraft. Through it she learned how to start, run and ultimately sell a business. She also gained the confidence to launch a larger venture ... er, umm ... adventure. 

    Amy's background is in journalism. She ran a community newspaper at age 23 and worked as a producer at Alaska's leading broadcast news station. 

    When not tapping away at the key board, Amy can be found playing with her daughter, drinking coffee and training for adventure races. She loves trail running, mountain biking and skate skiing ... but above all backcountry skiing. And, that, is why she calls the Tetons home.

    Garage Grown Gear Store Favorite: Purple Rain Skirt. "Wear it backpacking and packrafting, or to music festivals and networking events. Best pockets ever. And love the yoga-style waistband"

    A Leaping-in-the-Air Standing Ovation

    It's 4:43AM in the pre-dawn chill of the northern Sierra Nevada range. This windless night I jot notes on constellations, the rustle of raptor wings, and wonderment. From my FarmToFeet socks and Goosefeet Gear down booties to the Lawson's reflective ridgeline suspending my rainfly, I am pampered by Garage Grown Gear's genius and innovation. They equip me and my buddies for the funnest trekking of wild country! Whether it is the CedarPass field-notebook in my hands or the Thunderbolt Clothing pants wicking the strain of climbs and bouldering, Lloyd and his team at Garage Grown Gear deliver with the finest care and communications of a Hilton Hotel's concierge.
    Every GGG item for my backpacking strengthens some startup gear engineer and all the crafters who build, fabricate or sew the GGG genius that comforts my buddies' outdoor excursions.
    Now, I'll wander back to the awe of constellations and the run of condensation from our rainfly to the duff of 10,000 years' red cedar boughs.

    I love this site!

    I love this site! I recently ran into Sarah Vander's jackets at the Denver Rock N Roll Marathon Expo. I had read the article you guys did on her, but was afraid to buy a jacket online without knowing sizes. As soon as I recognized her jackets at the expo, I ran over, tried one on, and bought it on the spot. It wasn't the one I was drooling over in your article, but it is still amazing. I ran in it last week - kept the Colorado cold out. Thank you for your great work and showing off these great brands. - Erin

    Excellent Support

    I always come through GGG for their collections and thoughtful support with all my questions. Appreciate all their product expertise!

    GGG IS THE BEST

    What a pleasure it was to do business with GGG!

    I ordered the SWD x GGG pack last year, and it has been such a pivotal piece of gear since! Not only on trail, but also off trail! I use it as my everyday bag to work and school during the week, and in the back country on the weekend!

    It was a real privilege to do business with a company like GGG that has deep connections to the grassroot community!

    Cool gear and great customer service experiennce

    I have made several purchases from GGG and have liked everything I have bought even though I have not heard of many of these brands before. They have all been very high quality and unique.
    Most importantly their customer service has been excellent.
    They are quick to respond and they aim to please.
