Questions and Answers


Backcountry Gear knows when planning for the elements women demand outdoor clothing that can stand up to their challenges. Because women have a plan. They plan to sweat, they plan to make the most of it, and they plan to come back better than they left.


Mountaineer, backpacker, runner, tent camper, whatever, we know you need the best outdoor clothing. You want the parkas, down jackets, shells, and fleeces by the best at affordable prices. And that doesn't mean skimping on style, either. With smart designs from outdoor leaders, Backcountry Gear makes it easy.


From casual to cardio, Backcountry Gear has the best gear for all-weather outdoor sports. The workhorse of any outdoor clothing collection, the softshell, is a cornerstone at BCG. We stock a range of water resistant, windproof softshells and hardface fleeces from Arc'Teryx, Marmot, and more. Those looking for waterproof hardshells won't be disappointed, either, whether looking for time-tested GORE-TEX options or any of the ultralight breathable fabrics like eVent, DryQ, or H2NO.


Women's shirts and tops are easy at Backcountry Gear. For organic warmth and natural comfort, go for the 100% Merino wool from Icebreaker, SmartWool, and others as a next to skin layer, mid layer, or outer layer. For high performance outdoor clothing able to handle sweat, try Patagonia capilene base layers and stay cool with an odor resistant fabric. From head to toe, select from the best lightweight crews, active capris, down to casual footwear like Chaco sandals.

After you’ve finished hitting the slopes, returned from lightweight backpacking, or come down off the mountain, relax in any one of Backcountry Gear’s wide array of comfortable and casual camisoles or t-shirts. Sturdy enough for an inner layer, yet comfortable enough for wearing alone around the fire pit for a meal.


Headquartered in Eugene, Oregon, Backcountry Gear has the best in women's outdoor apparel from global industry leaders Patagonia, IceBreaker, Arc'teryx, and Prana. We stock the best in lightweight tents, climbing gear, and hiking gear, too. When you plan for the outdoors, plan on, your first stop for outdoor adventure. Every step of the way.
