Company DescriptionJeff Knight and Dan Cruikshank founded Granite Gear in 1986. It all started when we went on a paddling trip deep in the heart of Quetico. As usual, it took a few days of being out there before we shed the outer layer of our plastic civilization and began to get the rhythm of “being” in the wilderness. A week after that, we had discovered something about who we really were, and how we wanted things to be.
Granite Gear is passionate about offering outdoor products that are not just creative, but innovative. True innovation starts with the fire of an idea, is tested on the trail, and stands the test of time.
