GGG Never Fails

I am doing shakedown hikes, trying to choose what I will need for my long hike on the AT next year. If I think of a problem or a wish, I get on here and there it is. The answer! Looks perfect. And it is. Pack liner, shoulder strap pads, headlamp, powdered soap and toothpaste tablets, ditty bags, food, a new pillow and a bunch more. It is always fun, easy, fair-priced and quick to ship. Hope to dial in my gear soon, with much thanks to GGG!

Great selection, quick shipping

Just got my first big (to me!) shipment and it was a fabulous experience. The prices were great and my package arrived quickly. Loved the sticker they threw in and was delighted to find a pack of red pepper flakes they added just for fun. How did they know I add those to EVERYTHING?! Now I don't have to make my own baggie to take on my first overnight trip in September. Thanks GGG!

Amazingly amazing

As a PCT Thru-hiker who has probably placed 20 orders from GGG this year alone... discovering Garage Grown Gear felt like finding a hidden treasure online—a place where small, innovative brands thrive alongside established favorites. It's not just a store; it's a community. Supporting these makers adds a special dimension to my gear, knowing each purchase contributes to the growth of the outdoor industry. Thank you GGG for being a beacon of excellence!

Unable to use Canadian Currancy with paypal?! Forced to download "Shop app" to view tracking.

So far my shopping experience leaves a little to be desired...firstly I hit a barrier trying to make a purchase using paypal getting a message that the merchant would not accept my currency. (Canadian dollars) I could only assume this meant I needed to select USD from the drop down menu but unfortunately for me that was not on the list...so then I had no option but to use a credit card to make the transaction.
Upon completing my purchase I discovered that to view tracking information for my order I had to then download an app on my phone, complete the registration form
Needless to say so far this hasn't been too great.

Hey Nathan!

Sorry to hear you are experiencing some issues with the payment side of things. Unfortunatley these are largely limitations that exist from our web platform Shopify. Ironically a Canadian company! If you are struggling to access any specific information, have specific questions about the interface, or need support with other payment options in the future, our Customer Service Team can certainly try and help you out. Just reach out at help@garagegrowngear.com

We certainly appeciate the order, and we'll get your pack on its way tomorrow morning!

Cheers,

-Lloyd

One stop shopping

As I upgrade my backpacking kit, I’m finding most of the gear I want here at GGG. I’m continuing to strive for a lighter load and GGG makes it a little easier to find and compare items. Plus, harder items to find like little squeeze bottles, little zip pull thermometers… even bic mini lighters. Stuff I’m just not finding in retail stores. I feel good about supporting the small cottage industry, and GGG makes that a little easier.

GGG First Order!

Got so excited to open my little box of UL treasures! Unpacked each piece and replaced items I had had in my pack for the GGG upgrades. So excited to get them out on the trail. Very happy with what I chose. Everything is even better than I had imagined! Best thing was a thank you from Pete on my order summary. A real human making a simple effort to express gratitude that I chose to buy from the GGG family of small brands. I’m definitely coming back for more!
And thank you Pete and GGG. My pack is lighter and my heart is smiling. :))

THE BEST!!!

Absolutely love garage grown gear. Heard about this site from YouTube about a month ago and have already ordered from them at least 3-4 times now. Everything always ships out fast and the convenience of being able to order from multiple different cottage companies all in one order on the same website and only having to pay shipping once is great! I've recommended GGG to all my friends and will def continue to be a repeat customer.

Passed my email address along to another vendor Coalatree

Via fastmal, I created an email address just for Garage Grown Gear, as I often do for vendors I don't know yet. Roughly a week after I provided that address to Garage Grown Gear it was getting email from an unrelated vendor.

Not cool dudes.

Hey there MyKr!

Looks like you entered into the 2024 Ultralight Giveaway. As with most giveaways, entering did opt you into receiving emails from some of the other brands that were involved. We try to be clear about this in the rules and regulations of the giveaway, and if you want to avoid this in the future, i'd suggest avoiding contests or giveaways alltogether. They all pretty much operate on a similar system. Outside of giveaways (where people who enter elect to opt in), we never share customer information with anyone! That's both unethical and illegal. Both things we aren't into!

I would suggest unsubscribing from Coalatree if you aren't interested in getting their emails, and as mentioned previously, avoid giveaways and such moving forward!

❤️ for the little guys

GGG is like that cool hiking friend you can ask about for some cool gear. I'm glad to be able to support smaller businesses through GGG. I appreciate the small random added details in my orders as well guys!

Best place for backpacking gear. Period.

I’ve ordered 3 times now from GGG. They have an awesome selection backpacking and camping gear, and stuff you’d be hard pressed to find other places. If you’re wanting to support cottage brands (and we should ALL want to do this), order from companies like GGG FIRST, then go to REI SECOND. Fantastic staff and crazy fast shipping. I’ll be coming back for more.

International shipping with no problems

Shipped promptly to Germany with no damage or onyx problems whatsoever. Thanks GGG

Very satisfied

I like to support small business and GGG came through. They had everything I was looking for at the right price and delivery was quick and on time. I'll definitely order from them again.

Just discovered a billion brands here that i've never heard of. So cool! Hard to imagine I've been shopping elsewhere for stuff...

GGG cannot properly fill orders

My first order was not filled correctly. Ordered 4 of an item and only received 3. GGG correctly sent the missing item promptly. No big deal. Mistakes happen. My second order was also not filled correctly. GGG sent me the wrong 900ml Toaks pot. There are two 900ml Toaks pots, 115mm and 130mm. I was sent the 130mm instead of the 115mm. Contact me if you cannot correctly fill my order. Return is in process.

Quality control on filling orders is lacking. GGG will not be m first choice website going forward. Good luck.

Hey David! Sorry to hear we've made a couple consecutive mistakes here. That sucks and it's certainly something we really hate to hear as we put a TON of effort into not making mistakes with fullfillment! So you know, everything we ship gets checked twice: once by the person picking the order and once by the person who is packing it. That obviously doesn't mean we don't still make mistakes (clearly we goofed on your orders), but it means we catch most issues before they get shipped. This is 100% an area we are always trying to improve on and again... apologies for the frustrating customer experience. I hope you get the correct pot and put it to some good use this summer!

All the best,

-Lloyd

One Stop Shop!

The one stop shop for all your ultralight backpacking needs. If you aren’t getting your ultralight backpacking gear from GGG, are you even backpacking ultralight!!?

Personalized touch

After taking all the items out of the box, I was looking over the order details and saw that they left me a personalized note, that put a smile on my face. I will definitely be shopping here again.

Second to none customer service

They have the best ultralight backing gear, and I'm frequently checking for the newest products that i didn't know i needed. Customer service is as good as it gets.

The Little Things

I have purchased some small items for my next backpacking trip from Garage Grown Gear. As a mountain guide (past owner of Aspen Alpine Guides and a 30-year NOLS Instructor), I realize that it's the little things that can make or break a backpacking expedition. Garage Grown Gear has those little things. Please support this incredible company. Thank you!

Awesome Customer Service & Products

I am consistently checking GGG for all the new an innovative, lightweight products. For example, the toothbrush head that goes on a long spoon. I also appreciate the cleaner ingredient food offerings they have like Trail Butter that doesn't have palm oil in it. Thanks, GGG. Keep doing what you're doing.

GGG is amazing

So, I am military and fairly new to the UL ways of thinking. Ordinarily we pack everything we need for any possible contingency. So I possess a lot of camping gear but none of it is very lightweight. GGG has made hiking with my son enjoyable as I was easily able to get my base weight down from 30-35 lbs (hey I'm used to carrying way more) to 12 lbs. The pricing is pretty competitive, the reviews are honest and useful, and I haven't had any reason to deal with customer service but from what I've read they're pretty top notch. Although I may not do all of my shopping here it has given me a single place to at least compare different pieces and the overall majority of everything I'm looking for is in one place. When I'm researching a new piece of gear this is the site that I compare everything against due to the excellent selection. I plan on doing some more shopping here as I delve further into how I use the equipment I do have and to lighten my load. Thanks guys and keep up the great work.
P.S I left the 1 star because they are typically the ones I go to first but I would give them 5 stars if people cared as much about them.

Ha! Well thanks for the kind words Jason! We'll happily recieve this 1 star review from you :)

Really wonderful to hear that GGG has been helpful in your gear journey, and we super appreciate your support. I think GGG's love laungage is words of affirmation, so thanks for taking the time to share your experience!!

Hope your summer is going well!

Go to shop for UL

GGG is my go-to-shop for everything UL-backpacking. This is vhere new stuff emerges from the small garages out there - feels nice ti support small startups too.

All the best stuff

GGG has everything you need to lighten your pack weight in the outdoors. Shipping is fast and all the brands they carry are top notch. This is the only place to find all the awesome lesser known brands without spending hours researching.

Great Service

Had a question about a pack. Received a fast lengthy detailed response from Customer Service. I would typically prefer the small local brick and mortar store but the big box stores moved in and put them out of business. I don’t like most of the gear the big stores sell but GGG has a good selection of what I’m looking for. Their customer service is as good as what I’ve had with the local guys before they closed shop. I’ll always check here first going forward.
