Top 9 Best Sellers on Garage Grown Gear


1. Give’r Hand-Branded Leather Glove

The Give’r Glove was born straight out of the mountains in Jackson Hole where sturdy, lined gloves are a necessity, not a luxury.  “The Glove of 100 Uses” is hand-branded, made to order, and customized with initials, ensuring they don’t “go missing” and land in your friends’ gear stash. All gloves will arrive water-sealed and ready to use.

  • Slip-on style all-leather glove
  • Insulated for cold weather comfort
  • Sock-lining construction (glove inside of a glove)
  • Each glove is unique in appearance because they are handmade with variations in the leather

It’s hard to find a glove more versatile. The Give’r Glove works for rippin’ ski turns, chopping wood, making snow balls, duck hunting and approximately 96 other uses.


2. Good To-Go Thai Curry

Good To-Go created their own blend of spices and aromatics that give the Thai Curry a completely unique and delicious flavor.  With the addition of Thai chilies this dish has a little kick too.  The curry is cooked with fresh broccoli and cauliflower and finished with peas and green beans.  To complete the true Thai experience, Thai Curry is served with Jasmine Rice, the most fragrant and flavorful rice for this dish.


  • One-dish meal that cooks in its own packaging makes for eating healthy on the trail
  • Good To-Go was founded by a professional chef who has cooked at 4-star restaurants.
  • Gluten-Free- no separate backcountry meals or pans for your hiking partners with a special dietary need.
  • Carbohydrates and veggies help you fuel up

Bring a little of Thailand or your favorite Thai restaurant from home on your next backpacking trip, night out in a tent, river trip or fast-packing day trip.

3. Nina.B.Roze Heart Butt Legging, Capri and Shorts

Squats in the gym are awesome for two reasons: training for ski turns, and – a more scrutinizing incentive – reaching that Beyonce-style lift. Designer Nina Berenboym creates workout clothes that celebrate a women’s shape and her desire for high-performing workout gear, so now you can do a couple more squats with the Nina.B.Roze Heart Butt Legging and look great doing it.

  • Created by a trained fashion designer with a passion for fitness and ballet
  • Made in Los Angelos, California
  • Soft, chafe-free design & stitching
  • Quality material is opaque, so you can leave something to the imagination
  • Flattering heart stitched detail on the most feminine asset of a woman, The Booty
  • Gusseted crotch for comfort and movement

Wear your Nina B. Rose Heart Butt Leggings for yoga, dance class, sport climbing, running, cross-fit or grab an oversize top and boots for a night out.

4. Hummingbird Hammocks

When Chris Loidolt decided he needed a hammock he looked around his parachute rigging loft and used the skydiving materials he had on hand to build himself one. The result was a hammock that is stronger, far lighter and much smaller packing than any other hammock on the market. Following a successful kickstarter campaign, Hummingbird Hammocks is now a thriving small business, with all hammocks made in Colorado.

  • Constructed of actual reserve parachute material
  • Built entirely in the USA with USA made materials.
  • Heavy duty spectra end loops have a high weight capacity and keep your hammock where it’s supposed to be – off the ground
  • Soft link carabiners are ultralight and pack small
  • Lock stitched using Size B bonded nylon thread for many years of relaxation
  • A portion of profits from sales of Hummingbird Hammocks are donated to help maintain hiking trails and keep them clean.
  • Intentionally minimally packaged


Hummingbird Hammocks were designed by an FAA Certified Parachute Rigger, so you can dream securely in the woods, by the beach, in the desert or your backyard.

5. Bambool Thermics BT1 Base Layer Tops and Bottoms

Tired of the smell of synthetics and the itchiness of wool? So were Craig and Jessica Woods. They discovered that bamboo has many wonderful qualities. It’s anti-bacterial and ecologically friendly. By combining it with the warmth of merino wool, they realized they could create a truly fabulous base layer. Meet the BT1 from Colorado-company Bambool Thermics.

  • Soft and comfortable bamboo, merino wool and elastane blend.
  • Bamboo is an eco-friendly material with anti-bacterial properties (bye, bye stinky smells)
  • Gusseted armpit so you can stretch, swing, reach and bend without restriction
  • Thumb holes to keep sleeves from bunching under layers and your hands warm
  • Flatlock stitching and tag free design prevent chafing and skin irritation
  • Zipper cage to protect your chin
  • Lightweight for your active pursuits.

Your Bambool BT1 Base Layer keeps you dry and warm while you are jogging, skiing, hiking, snowboarding, climbing or paddling. Or use them as pajamas – they’re that soft.


6. Hyperlite Mountain Gear Windrider

  • Sternum strap to distribute the weight correctly
  • 3 external mesh pockets for added volume and storage (great for stowing snacks for the day, a water bladder, an extra jacket, or drying damp gear as you hike.)
  • Fully sealed side seams for improved water resistance (a rain cover is not required, however Cuben fiber stuff sacks to compartmentalize your gear and provide an added layer of water resistant security)
  • Double-reinforced 150d pack bottom
  • Recommended weight carrying capacity range of the 2400 Windrider is 20-40lbs
  • Made in Maine, USA

This 40 liter, 28.2 oz. (799 gram) pack is perfect for weekend trips, section hiking, or months on the trails where frequent re-supply points are available, such as the AT, the Long Trail, or the El Camino de Santiago.


7. Skida Alpine Hat

Did your childhood involve a scratchy, brown, acrylic hat yanked down to your ear lobes? Ladies, it’s redemption time. Meet the Skida Alpine Hat. Keep your head warm with a cap that wicks moisture, cuts the wind and looks incredibly stylish. This great Vermont brand was founded by a then-high school student who started out by making hats for her team mates and friends.

  • Poly blend hat and fleece lining is soft and comfortable next to your face
  • Spandex material makes for a great fit for all head sizes

8. Farm to Feet Multi-Sport Socks

Farm to Feet socks take Made in the USA to a whole new level, meticulously tracking every step of the supply chain, right down to the ink and paper used for packaging. This same attention detail also goes into their socks’ construction, and make the Greensboro 1/4 Crew a customer favorite.

  • Hidden Nylon Plaiting sandwiches stretch yarns between two layers of body yarn creating a smooth exterior and a low-profile fit
  • Bottom-of-foot cushioning adds shock-absorbing loop knit across the entire sole
  • Full-density cushioning features a terry knit loop on every interior stitch, providing better insulation, exceptional wicking, and increased protection against impact

9. Enlightened Equipment Revelation Quilt

The Enlightened Equipment Revelation quilt is an ideal multi-season ultralight quilt that can join you on all sorts of adventures, including backpacking, paddling, or cross country cycling. Like all of Enlightened Equipment’s quilts, it’s anything but a mass-produced, one-size-fits all piece of outdoor equipment.

  • You choose your length, width, down type, and fabric
  • Proprietary shiftless baffle system efficiently and evenly distributes warmth along the length of your body

  • Light drawcord which allows you to cinch the top of the quilt close to your chin to keep all your warmth in the quilt where it belongs
  • Includes silnylon Stuff Sack, breathable Nylon Storage sack, elastic Pad Straps
  • Made in Minnesota

    I’m most interested in the Antero II Women’s Jacket by Freeride Systems because it’s Guaranteed Waterproof, Guaranteed Breathable, Windproof, and Fully Seam Taped! Sounds perfect for life in Canada! Thanks!

  2. I just got a sleeping quilt from Enlightened Equipment in the mail and I can’t wait to try it out! My new sleeping system (quilt, pad) is a full 3 pounds lighter than the last one. Thanks, garage grown gear, for finding such awesome companies!

  3. My boys love the Give’r gloves that I got them for Christmas! They use them alot – especially since the winter has been particularly cold and snowy here on the coast of Maine. They’ve brought in alot of wood and rode alot of miles on the snowmobiles.

    • Brenda,

      So awesome that your boys have gotten so much use out of their Give’r gloves. Love hearing GGG’s gear is being put to good use. Wish we had some more of that snow here in the Tetons : )


  4. Cathy Scholtens | March 25, 2015 at 11:19 am | Reply

    Baselayers… they look great and are so necessary!

  5. I love the Hammock Sports Bra- it’s really different! I think it would be comfortable as well as cool-looking.

    • MJ,

      I actually have the Hammock Sports Bra and can vouch for it … it IS comfortable and very cool looking … and really supportive as well.



  6. A Hummingbird Hammock… sounds like a great product and made in the USA

    • Doris,

      Excellent choice. I just love the story behind Hummingbird Hammock too … a parachute rigger turned hammock rigger.



  7. April Crisafulli | March 25, 2015 at 11:58 am | Reply

    I like the Antero II Women’s Jacket by Freeride Systems. I’m always looking for a warm jacket!

  8. I am most interested in the Enlightened Equipment Sleeping Booties! Because, come on, let’s be honest SLEEPING BOOTIES. They look super comfy!

    • Well said … “let’s be honest SLEEPING BOOTIES” … Love it! I could have used a pair camping last weekend when I couldn’t get to sleep because my feet were cold.



  9. The revelation down quilt / bag. I am tall and would love a custom quilt!

  10. Love the Women’s MTB Short by Shredly, perfect for my daughter who is a white water raft guide.

    • Rust,

      Super cool. We love the Shredly shorts too, in large part because of just how versatile they are … everything form mountain biking to water sports to just wearing around town.



  11. I would flock to the camping and hiking section since it’s getting to be that time of the year for me! The Enigma Ultralight Down Quilt by Enlightened Equipment looks awesome and a solar powered battery charger like the
    Sunjack is on my wish list.

    • Kristen,

      I know, here in the Tetons spring is here. We actually went on our first camping trip last weekend. Time to gear up!



  12. James Allen Davis | March 25, 2015 at 3:00 pm | Reply

    Well, after taking a long look at pretty much everything on there, I was kind of surprised, definitely didn’t think I’d see something like this on there, but in all honesty, this is probably the thing I could USE most of all, really! The SunJack Tablet(20W), why? Well, because I don’t have anything like it & it could obviously come in VERY handy while traveling across the country, etc. in the future which is a serious goal of mine, that’s why! :oD

  13. I really like the Revelation Ultralight Custom Down Quilt by Enlightened Equipment because it looks like the perfect alternative to a sleeping bag which can get too stuffy in a tent.

  14. With $250 I’d totally experiment with a down quilt for my daughter. She HATES sleeping bags and sleeps horribly in them. That means I sleep horribly, too.

    • John,

      I wonder if a quilt just might be the ticket, esp. since EE makes kids sizes. I always found my EE quilt much more comfortable, especially for side sleeping and not having it get twisted around me as I turn about at night.



  15. Enlightened Equipment’s Enigma UL Down Quilt. I am a fan of their products and could use a new quilt. In a few months I will be backpacking in Virginia, Missouri and Maryland and this would be great for those trips.

    • Wil,

      EE is such a great company – both the quilts and the people behind the business. What a fun backpacking trip you have coming up! Enjoy (and hope to get you set up with what you need … note: we use a third party random generator to select the winner, so I really have no control ; )



  16. There are really too many to list. Please don’t make me choose a favorite. I like too many things in the GGG store! A few standouts at this time, though, are Bambool base layers, Northern Lites snowshoes, the Antero II Jacket from Freeride Systems, Hummingbird hammocks, an Enlightened Equipment quilt………….I could go on, but I’ll refrain for now.

    • Tim,

      This comment pretty much makes my day. So glad we’re finding and offering gear that really resonates with you. We love it all too!



  17. Diane Richards | March 25, 2015 at 10:18 pm | Reply

    Accomplice Pro Ultralight Down Quilt by Enlightened Equipment. I don’t have a sleeping bag right now. Looks so comfy, warm and roomy. Having this fabulous down quilt will encourage me to get out and camp more and I would not have to rely on borrowing a sleeping bag anymore 🙂

    • Diane,

      Ya, once you’ve tried EE, there’s no going back! And yes, having the right gear makes getting into the outdoors SO MUCH easier. That’s what we’re all about here at GGG … helping people feel confident to get outside because they trust their gear.



  18. I would love to win the Ninjasuit! Looks so comfy and warm!! I could seriously use that half the year here.

    • I’ve lately come to the conclusion that one pieces are a pretty brilliant invention that shouldn’t be left just to the ’80s.



  19. I’m loving that “high altitude wool” Voormi line! May have to splurge and blow it all on one nice piece from them. 🙂

    Great giveaway – wishing you all the best in the upcoming year, for Garage Grown Gear!

  20. I love my HMG Porter Pack for big trips so much I need a HMG Windrider for shorter or summer trips. Thanks for the great customer service and all the wildly cool gear!

    • Ha – love it! Once you get a taste of this gear, it’s hard to want anything else. I do like those mesh pockets on the Windrider too. Makes it really convenient to get to those random items you want close.



  21. Right now what we need most is a pair of the Muddy Munchkins Boots for my littlest! she has been walking since 9months and there are no good boots that cover her tiny feet. i want her to be able to run and explore (she just turned a year) but acutally be able to walk without clunky shoes!

    • Jenn,

      It sounds like MyMuyu’s Muddy Munchkins would be perfect for your daughter. As I mentioned in my reply to Andrea above, my daughter wears hers constantly and they’re surprisingly grippy for how flexible the sole is.



  22. Andrea Taivalkoski | March 27, 2015 at 11:34 am | Reply

    I am eyeing up a pair of the Muddy Munchkins Boots by MyMayu with the liners. I can’t stand clunky boots, so these would be perfect!

  23. If money were no object, I’d love to try the Endurance by Renoun Skis. They look fantastic for both big-mountain and hard pack snow conditions. My current skis are getting a bit old and I’d really like to get a versatile pair like these!

    • Keara,

      We just got a demo pair of the Renoun Skis here at the GGG Headquarters. We’ll let you know what we think. The proprietary hyper-damping material looks really cool. I got a first-hand look at how it works back in January at the Ski Industry Association Snow Show.



  24. The quilt for camping would be amazing!!!! also, the toddler rain boots that i saw a few weeks ago mentioned on Tales of a Mtn Mama would be great.

  25. The Revelation Ultralight Custom Quilt looks good. I need a quilt for backpacking with my husband.

  26. Lots of cool items, fun to browse your shop and reviews. I bought a few items directly from companies you featured before you opened your shop. I am looking forward to the Voormi water repellent wool jackets, and hope you guys will carry them! Best wishes!

    • Thanks for the great note Wendy. I got to try on a prototype of the new Voormi jackets and the Ski Industry Association Snow Show in January. They’re really cool (from what I could tell wearing it inside vs. in the rain ; ) I’m also hoping we’ll be able to work something out with Voormi.



  27. A couple of the things I like are the Midweight All Sport by Give’r and the Sneffles Hoodie by Freeride Systems.

  28. I would love to have the 2 Person UltaMid Shelter by Hyperlite Mountain Gear for my upcoming hiking/camping adventures.

  29. Who wouldn’t love a ninja suit? So much to buy, too hard to narrow it down!

  30. Amelia Mayer | March 29, 2015 at 5:15 pm | Reply

    I’m loving The Landmark Project tees! Really really loving them!!!! In fact, here I go to purchase one! 😉

  31. I am most interested in the Enigma Ultralight down bag (among many other items in your shop!) – looks toasty and the idea of having a bag tailored to your size and needs is very appealing (I am broad shouldered but short so women’s specific bags likely work in length but then feel really restrictive across the shoulders/chest.)

  32. The rechargeable headlamp! I use them for everything! Hiking and outdoor pursuits, of course, but also late-night reading and diaper changes. Have been looking into rechargeable ones…

  33. I like the Women’s National 2.0 by Surf Wyoming.

  34. The hammock and the down quilt would be great.

  35. Muddy munchkin boots for my munchkins…they look like they will fit comfortably, not rub ankles and other pointy foot bits, and be ready for adventure!

  36. Michele Blosel | March 30, 2015 at 8:20 pm | Reply

    My granddaughter loves the Mittysz. So cute and warm!
