At Gossamer Gear, “take less. do more.” goes beyond a slogan or hashtag.
It serves as a reminder to maintain our relentless drive to eliminate the unnecessary in life, and focus on what’s important and worthy of “doing” to serve our customers, our community, and our wild places.
We’re the ultralight OG. For over two decades we’ve been shedding every possible gram while elevating performance, comfort, and durability. Our commitment, creativity, and grit drives our innovative pack, shelter, and trekking pole designs. We know that carrying less frees you to do more - more miles, more fun, and more awesome experiences.
Over 20 years ago, our founder Glen Van Peski realized that traveling lighter on and off trail is simply… better. Since the early days of hand-sewing each pack to order in Glen’s garage, we’ve remained committed to asking ourselves one question: Is this the right thing to do?
While the answer isn’t always a clear yes or no, the process of answering this question always puts us on the right track.
We're committed to reducing our environmental impact because we recognize that it's our responsibility.
Our biggest goals are to always have something in the works, to evolve our approach to sustainability, and to enrich our communities along the way. Know that we apply the same integrity, care, and excellence with these projects as we do our product innovation.
