Day 1 Giveaway: Give’r hand-branded gloves and silkweight All Sport shirt

Give'r All Sport Silkweight Base Layers Review - Garage Grown Gear***Giveaway entry form at bottom of post***

There was a phrase in the Canadian small town where Bubba Albrecht spent time while growing up. “Give’r.” It meant to get after it, do your best, be in the moment.

When Bubba and friends spent seven days kayaking to Northern Ontario, Canada in 2011, he made everyone a hat to commemorate the trip. It featured the phrase Give’r, along with an outline of the Tetons, representing an area where many, including Bubba lived.

After the trip, people regularly stopped him to ask where he got the hat, what the phrase meant and if there were more for sale.

After dozens of requests, Bubba and friends Carly Platt and Jed Mickle formed the Jackson Hole clothing company Give’r, and in March 2012 started selling t-shirts, hats and a pair of waterproof leather gloves with the logo branded on the outside.


Give’r is high quality and reflects a mountain lifestyle that isn’t about higher, faster or better, but about having the most fun in whatever you’re doing.

It doesn’t mean you had the best day skiing the hardest line, Bubba said. It means you had fun doing it, whether it’s hucking a cliff or conquering groomers. It’s about committing yourself to an activity, whether it’s chopping wood or spending the afternoon fly fishing.

“It’s easy to lose sight of, but it’s ‘I’m going to try my best and whatever that ends up being is fine,’” Bubba said.

    Everything looks beautiful. I could really use a couple of those River Runners 🙂

  7. Honestly, I’m eyeing the leather gloves. I’ve got a trail blazing session coming up and those would come in handy.

    • No pun intended right (“handy”) …. wow feeling a little punchy today. The leather gloves our GGG’s #1 best seller because of truly how many different uses there are for them : )

  8. Congrats on the anniversary! Such awesome stuff. 🙂 I’d love to try the Midweight All Sport top. It looks great for all things outdoors.

    • Keara,

      Thanks so much! I wear my Midweight All Sport constantly … both for the outdoors and everyday wear. Give’r really nailed it with its entire All Sport line.


  9. I love the MID-Weight All Sport layer. It’s something I could use for 9 months a year here in Alberta. : ) The hats are pretty rad too.

    • Karen,

      As mentioned in the comment above, I wear my Mid-weight All Sport all the time, for outdoor play and everyday wear. It would work perfect in Alberta!

    I really like the gloves. I’m always searching for a really good pair of leather gloves.

    • Hard to go wrong with the gloves … they’re great … and the fact that you can get your initials hand-branded on them is extra awesome!

  11. Great local brand. love to support local people doing great things. I have been a big fan of the river runner neck koozie all last summer but now am in Love with the leather gloves – great for year round wear.

    • Carli,

      We definitely love working with Give’r as a local brand. It creates an extra level of connection when we can just walk on over to their “garage” office in Jackson Hole. And, you picked two great items with the River Runner Kooze and gloves!


  12. I would love to have the Antero II Women’s Jacket by Freeride Systems.
