GooseFeet Gear was founded in early 2010 by Ben Smith, who was 20 years old at the time and in his 3rd year of college at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA.
The company started out with down socks as the primary product and quickly moved into other simple areas like waterproof over-booties and pillows. Ben started designing other products in late 2010 – mostly down pants, balaclavas, and vests. He used word of mouth to sell quite a few of these items.
Nearly a decade later, GooseFeet Gear has become a brand known throughout the outdoor community for supplying high-quality, ultra-light custom down gear. And what’s best? Every item that we make is hand-made in the USA, so you can feel good about the fact that your hard-earned money is helping to keep a small local business going.

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!
