So, it was a big day in Give’r Country last week. Outside Magazine featured Give’r as one of “The 6 Best Outdoor Clothing Companies You’ve Never Heard Of”. We’re not one to feather our own cap, but we’ve been psyched and appreciative of the shout out and are charging forward with excitement here in Jackson, WY.
The article has had over 5K shares, and we’re stoked to be in great company: NWAlpine, Bambool, Roscoe Outdoor, Ridge Merino, and American Mountain Co. all of which are available at Garage Grown Gear. A BIG thank you goes out to author Amy Hatch, also the founder of Garage Grown Gear. She and her team seek out innovative and wildly cool outdoor startups...and we're lucky to be working with them! Thanks for Given'r Amy!

Part of the reason companies like Patagonia and Arc’teryx are so successful is because they were started by people who wanted to make the best clothing for their own adventures. Today, that same entrepreneurial spirit lives on with a new handful of boutique brands. Here are six we recommend keeping an eye on.
In the small Canadian town where Bubba Albrecht spent time growing up, he often heard the term “give’r,” which meant “get after it.” A few years ago, Albrecht made a hat featuring the phrase and an outline of the Tetons (he now lives in the area). People regularly stopped to ask him about the hat, so he decided to start making them, and in March 2012 launched Give’r. The line has since expanded to include tees, hand-branded leather gloves, and high-performance base layers great for backcountry ski laps or practicing downward dog at your local yoga studio. Give'r is also a 1% for the Planet member, which means one percent of its profits support environmental work.
A few comments from the readers:
@Livefreeandhike: “Cool Stuff by Innovative People, time for some Christmas Shopping”
@kovasP – “So great to see small gear companies from the US being showcased”
@jigidy – “So great to see these companies highlighted! I love my Bambool, softest baselayer I own and my Give'r Silkweight All Sport lives up to its name as I've used it fishing, running, skiing, etc."
Yes, we agree, the Silkweight All Sport is pretty darn neat. Check it out here and see what the hype is all about: Silkweight All Sport
