Fast-forward through miles of trails, rivers and mountain passes, Vince started to slowly pack away the food that was being offered to outdoor adventurists, and started making his own. It began with a few re-sealable bags, some oatmeal, and a variety of dried fruits for breakfast. Then it was homemade desserts tweaked from family recipes (these will seriously make you melt in your hiking boots). Then it was lunches made with flavored noodles, doubled up with options made for gluten-free friends.
Over time, the demand from his fellow Trailtopians grew. With an innate intuition to invent and create, his food was better than anything else on the trail. In 2013, on an annual backpacking trip (this time to Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains), the idea to share Vince’s backpacking food with others happened as naturally as the ingredients themselves, and Trailtopia Adventure Food was born. Today, we are a family-run company with the help of our friends and fellow adventurists… and Vince’s spaceship espresso machine. And we love our product.

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!!!
