    "A company by climbers, for climbers"
    Butora, a South Korean climbing shoe company, hasn’t been on the scene for all that long, but ever since they hit the USA, they’ve been knocking it out of the park. Any search for the Acro, winner of Rock and Ice’s Best Climbing Gear of 2016, results in numerous rave reviews about the enjoyable functionality of these aggressive shoes. In...

    Have you ever needed a little extra extra moral support to get past the crux? If your super-stoked friends couldn't make it to the crag and your belayer is more interested in texting than catching your fall, maybe one of the sweet chalk bags from 8b+ will give you the confidence to carry on. There's a fuzzy face for every...

    My favorite way to make coffee at home is the simple pour-over method. There's almost no cleanup, it makes great tasting coffee, and it's dead simple. I enjoy a good cuppa, but I'm not a coffee scientist and I'm not here to change any minds on brewing methodology...stick with what you like best. If a cone drip IS your usual method, then it...

      Known the world over for their fierce attacks, villainous movie roles, and voracious appetites, Piranhas are thankfully limited in range to a relatively small portion of South America. But that didn't stop Trango from making thousands of them and sending them all over the U.S.! The good news: this Piranha only bites when you want it to.   This...

    Gift Center Extravaganza

    Gift Center Extravaganza
      We all dread it, but it's time again to choose gifts for your hopefully-not-too-picky friends and relatives. I've found that holiday shopping is a lot easier when someone else does the research for you. Our gift center will (fingers crossed) take some of the sting out of the whole process. We started with BCG favorites: products that Backcountry Gear employees use and love...

    Gettin' clinical...again.
    We had a visit a few weeks ago from our Backpacker's Pantry Rep, and he set up a taste-testing-table for a few new flavors, and a few classic meals. I had no idea they've been around since 1951!   Their chef, our adventure.   It's pretty tough to make a truly tasty and filling freeze dried meal. Most of the time you'll...

    Super, or Mega? Both! SuperMega UL1

        The Mountain Hardwear SuperMega UL 1 is a lightweight wonder of a shelter with very few drawbacks. It's light. Really light! 2 lbs. 3 oz. packed weight. That puts this fully free-standing tent squarely in bivy territory weight-wise, but you can actually sit up and change your clothes without resorting to inchworm gymnastics.  It's designed for fast-and-light trips where packability and weight...

    Chaco Tan

    If you don't already own a pair of Chacos you should jump on the bandwagon this summer. We're showing off the Women's ZX1 and ZX2 and wow are there some cool color combos this year! They're more than your typical pair of sandals. The polyester jacquard webbing straps are comfortable on the skin and quick to dry. The straps aren't anchored...

    ReVolt against the night!

    If you're like me, and I don't see why you wouldn't be, you've probably wondered who the bonehead was who decided nighttime would be so dark and so long. It was probably a decision reached by committee, am I right? Like, hello, I have eyes. They need to see stuff. Nighttime kinda interferes with that. Ever think about that while...

    Fresh kicks

    It's just a few days away from summer and warm weather is already here to stay. We'll all be headed to the water soon if we haven't already. For me this usually means choosing the most beat-up breathable shoes in my closet and designating them as river shoes. The downside to this is that since they're totally trashed already, they usually have almost no...
