Gregory’s Deva women’s backpack has been a staple in our gear quiver for years, used by both our guests and guides as a reliable, durable solution for multi-day trips. The Deva’s customizable design is well-suited for beginner and advanced backpackers alike, equipped with a form-fitting hip-belt and breathable suspension to make any load more comfortable. Available in a variety of sizes and carrying capacities, we offer the Deva in 60 and 70-liter options.
Gregory designed the Baltoro to be the ultimate multi-day backpacking pack for men. Spacious yet agile, the Baltoro’s Response A3 suspension stays comfortable on any multi-day trip. Carry everything you need for a deluxe basecamp, then set out and explore using the included sidekick daypack.
A full-size, all-season pack that’s as comfortable as it is practical, Gregory’s Paragon is a lightweight, budget-friendly option with a customizable fit. It’s most unique feature—a full length side-zip access point—makes digging through the bag quick and easy. Available in 3 carrying capacities—48L, 58L, and 68L.
The women’s equivalent to the Gregory’s Paragon backpack, the Maven is a full-size, all-season pack that’s as comfortable as it is practical and budget-friendly. It offers a customizable fit and a full length side-zip access point—makes digging through the bag on-trail quick and easy. Available in 4 carrying capacities—35L, 45L, 55L and 65L.
Designed for growing young adults who have the same needs on the trail as their older counterparts. The Wander was designed to fit young adults, but it’s on par with any other full sized Gregory pack. As the years pass, you can count on the Wander’s wide range of adjustability to provide a comfortable fitting pack. Available in 50L and 70L capacities.
Plenty of capacity for multi-day trips in a pack fit for the smallest kiddos in your camp. From scouting to school trips, the Icarus provides ample capability for youth backpackers. A durable pack equipped with easy-to-use features and Gregory’s proprietary suspension that keeps the load comfortable all day long!
The Seedhouse SL1 is new to our fleet in 2020, and it’s already a guides’ favorite for its durability and light weight. The SL tents are the signature series in Big Agnes’ backpacking line—superlight pieces of gear designed to stand the test of time and the backcountry. Available in one- and two-person models.
An ideal option for base camp or entry-level backpacking, this spacious 2-person tent provides protection in three seasons and more space than most 2-person options. It’s easy to set up and offers many of Big Agnes’ best features, with a quality construction that’s built to last many seasons to come.
This 3-person, 3-season tent is a beefed up, burly addition to Big Agnes’ award-winning Copper Spur HV series. It includes a sturdy pole system, steep walls for maximum living space, nylon zip-up option for complete closure, and two doors/two vestibules for easy tent life and optimum gear storage to accommodate life on the trail.
The TwisterCane is our go-to sleeping pad, engineered for ultralight backcountry summer trips to high alpine winter conditions. Not only is it light and comfy, it’s made from sugarcane biomass in a process that removes carbon from the atmosphere
Ridge Merino is a sustainability-focused outdoor clothing brand specializing in apparel made from Merino wool, an entirely natural, renewable and biodegradable fiber that dries quickly, provides warmth, and is extremely comfortable. Our guides wear Ridge Merino sun hoodies on every trip as part of our official uniform!
The new Convict 1/2 Zip Pullover Hoodie is constructed with Ridge’s proprietary Power Wool, and designed as a breathable and lightweight mid-layer for backcountry travelers. It weighs about as much as a t-shirt and compresses to take up little room in your pack, if you ever take it off.
The Solstice is the official sun hoodie of Lasting Adventures. They’re so good, we made them our uniform and every guide has one! With a natural UPF of 30+ and a longer hem in the back for more coverage, the Solstice is the perfect layer for long days spent in the sun.
This extra-large gravity filter system delivers 10 liters of clean water fast—all while you set up camp, prep dinner or relax. And its big capacity means fewer trips to the river to haul the water you need. Ultralight and supremely packable, it offers the luxury of pump-free group filtration for basecamps, scout troops, horsepackers and other backcountry groups.
Bear Vault bear canisters are our go-to tool for protecting food from friendly foragers in California and Washington. With light weight and storage capacity for 7 days, an easily loadable top that opens without tools, and transparent walls, we use the larger BV500 on every overnight trip!
