In 2000 Six Moon Design's founder Ron Moak really worked at reducing his pack weight for a hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. He incorporated a number of then state of the art ultralight gear along with his own ideas. Ron made much of his own gear.
Following his Pacific Crest Trail, he began thinking about a future hike of the Continental Divide Trail. He realized that an affordable, ultra-lightweight shelter was really needed. Months of planning and development resulted in the birth of Six Moon Designs.
In May 2002 SMD introduced their first product, The Europa Tent. The Europa was designed to be light, affordable, easy to set up, and sturdy enough to be used over a wide variety of back-country environments. Over the years they've introduced a variety of innovative products from the Starlite Pack to the Gatewood Cape. With the introduction of the new Skyscape Scout, they're looking to take ultralight in a whole new market of affordable shelters.

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!!!
