The Goat Gets Around: Our Logo’s Life in Photos

The Backcountry goat has appeared in some pretty incredible places over the years, thanks to our beloved community of customers, athletes, and employees. It’s done cameos at the top of Everest, the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and in thousands of lesser-known and rarely seen corners of the wild world. For many who live and breathe the outdoors, the goat has become a kind of talisman—a symbol of adventure, exploration, and unbridled fun. Here’s a peek at some of the places it’s been sighted:
