Big Agnes’ staff works within sight of the mountains in a ski town in Colorado, and the mountains are where they test their gear. When the company was founded about twenty years ago, industry veterans cited the oversaturated market for camping equipment and predicted failure. But the team behind Big Agnes is inspired by more than dollar signs. Exploring the backcountry is their passion, and creating sturdy gear that makes outdoor adventures possible is their mission. They design, test, and sell everything from tents to apparel to sleeping bags, all constructed to withstand the elements and hard usage. And they are continually innovating with products and designs born of real-world necessity. Whatever the location or conditions of your outdoor adventure, you can count on their gear to perform.
