giving your gear a 2nd Routt.

we're committed.

Big Agnes has always focused on making quality products built to last with sustainable value chains, to help keep our gear on the trail and out of the trash.

Starting with the Big Agnes gear repair team in our early years, our positive environmental impact has only grown stronger over the last 20+ years and continues to grow. We have a long history of donating returned products to charitable causes, including displaced communities in Colorado, and upcycling returned gear that cannot be repaired.

A key part of our mission is to design innovative products made from recycled materials that do not contribute to waste, like our Circle Back™ Insulated sleeping pad - our first circular product that can be fully recycled after it's usable life.

As we move forward, we are committed to doing our part to be kind to our beautiful planet.

here's the plan:

1: build durable gear.

Our mission is to design and build high quality, durable gear using recycled and upcycled materials.

2: keep it out there.

We stand behind our gear. Our Repair Center works tirelessly to keep damaged gear out on the trail instead of in the trash.

3: close the circle.

When gear is not repairable, we recycle it or harvest it for parts that can be reused.

durable, sustainable gear.
