Hyperlite Mountain Gear is not about bells and whistles, nonessential features or the latest trending colors. The Maine company builds stripped-down, high-performance, outdoor gear that’s dialed in to meet, in as minimalist a manner as possible, the exacting requirements of goal-oriented adventurers.
Mike St. Pierre founded Hyperlite Mountain Gear after he couldn't find the exact gear he wanted for his ultralight backpacking trips. He came across Cuben fiber, ordered some of the fabric and was soon building his own equipment. That snowballed into schooling himself on production and R&D processes; and then business development.

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!
