So you wonder why they called their company Big Agnes®?

The answer you receive depends on who you talk with - and the mood they're in. It might be a rocky peak in the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness Area outside Steamboat Springs. It could be a laid back mountain town mama. Or possibly it's dependable backcountry gear. But the folks at Big Agnes tend to think it represents a little bit of each - and everything in between.

Big Agnes employees spend a lot of time in the local backcountry, so they feel downright connected to it. They name their products after local history, places, peaks, and rivers. It brings back memories of trips both successful and epic and hopefully inspires you to come explore.
