Granite Gear's philosophy started with the idea that they could make gear that genuinely worked, and supported wilderness adventurers in the pursuit of discovering something about themselves. They are passionate about offering products that are not just creative, but innovative. To them, innovation is more than just being creative for the sake of market differentiation; it has to actually work better. True innovation starts with the fire of an idea, is tested on the trail, and stands the test of time. Granite Gear is so passionate about innovation, that they’ve kindled our whole business with it.
