Backcountry.com is an online specialty retailer that sells clothing and outdoor recreation gear for hiking, camping, road biking, mountain biking, rock climbing, winter sports, fly fishing, kayaking, rafting, road and trail running, and more.
It all began in 1996 with two guys, a stack of avalanche beacons, and a garage in Park City, Utah. The store’s first sale, a Pieps 457 Opti-finder avalanche beacon, happened in February 1997. The original Backcountry roots were humble, and we’ve grown since then, but their vision is still clear: to provide the best outdoor gear and to be the best at doing it.
Thanks to the expertise and input of our team of staff, the gear and apparel Backcountry build strike the perfect balance of superior performance, versatile style, and meticulous fit. With genius features like laser-cut venting and customization from seam to seam, all collections inspire adventure and elevate your everyday.
At Backcountry you’ll find the highest-performance outdoor gear as well as clothing and expert-level gear knowledge.
