At our core, we want to inspire you to get outside and find the same appreciation for the backcountry we have. We’re a small company with the mountains just minutes from our office. We test product in these mountains and make gear that you can trust when you’re out there.
We started Big Agnes almost twenty years ago without a real plan, but with a pretty good idea: to make the best gear possible to help folks like you get outside and chase your dreams. Respected industry vets told us we were crazy. The camping market was ‘too saturated,’ they said…We were driven to make better gear and be part of some really cool adventures, so we kept at it.
The Big Agnes System, our original concept of affixing a sleeping pad and bag in a simple way, was born and everything evolved from there. We believe that innovation is born from real-world product testing, and that gear should be pushed to its limits. The photos, product reviews, stories and crazy adventures you share from all over the world are what keep us motivated. You’re using our gear exactly as intended…hard, often, and in ways we never imagined.
