Started from a bedroom in the West End of Hartford, Connecticut during COVID-19, Hartford Gear Company produces gear that is simple in design and built to last. Founder Georgia Wetmore's “No Frills” approach pays homage to the ultralight spirit of minimalism. In addition to the simple pouches and packing pods, Georgia enjoys taking on custom orders, including Fanny packs and pack accessories for individuals’ highly specific applications. When she's not making gear, Georgia enjoys backpacking in the Adirondack Mountains and spending time with her cat, Paco.

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!
