Hawbuck is a little project founder Wes Cox cooked up by accident. He needed a better wallet and couldn’t find what he wanted. Wes is an industrial designer, so he figured he'd tackle the problem. Also, Wes has too many sewing machines in his workshop. Making and selling some things helps justify their existence.
The biggest reason for doing this is he's proud of the design and wants it to get out there.
As far as he can tell, "hawbuck" means something between "vagabond" and "bumpkin", which works for Wes. It's an old word---"hawbuck" is potentially the root of the word "hobo" which is kind of cool. Now, some people will tell you that “Ho-Bo” was short for “Homeward Bound” post-war, but tell them no, “Hawbuck.”

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!
