Touring Collection

Our Gearheads teamed up with the touring community’s most respected brands to build a kit engineered to work seamlessly together. Get to know the Backcountry Touring Collection.

Built by Backcountry

Backcountry came to life over 20 years ago in a tiny garage beneath the shadows of the Wasatch, the same mountains we call home today. We've been shaped as a company and as people by the backcountry. Now we're building products for it.

Blazing the Backcountry Trail

Our first sale in 1996 was an avalanche beacon. After that, we quickly became the go-to source for backcountry skiers and riders looking to build or upgrade their gear kits. Our Touring Collection has been decades in the making, a reflection of years of experience and expertise with the best outdoor gear in the industry.

Gearhead® Certified

Gearheads are our in-house product experts, and are the heart and soul of Backcountry. Pre-work dawn patrols in our beloved Wasatch Mountains are practically in their job descriptions. This makes them uniquely positioned to inspire and certify a line of touring apparel that can stand up to the demands of the biggest days in the backcountry.

Better Together

We've teamed up with the touring community's most respected brands - Flylow, Black Diamond, DPS, and Smartwool - to create a cohesive touring kit engineered to work flawlessly and seamlessly together. Our collective experience and expertise has resulted in high-quality products that are vouched for by some of best brands in the backcountry.

The Backcountry x DPS collaboration resulted in a do-it-all ski that’s stiff, stable, and weighs around 1500 grams. The Nebo answers every demand that our collective decades of dawn patrols and touring expertise can throw at it.

Backcountry x Flylow is a men’s and women’s outerwear collaboration that created a lightweight, waterproof, and breathable touring kit, so you can sweat without freezing, the crown jewel of any touring experience.

There’s really no one perfect touring glove, so we created a unique two-glove system specifically designed for uphill and downhill.

Karsyn Ansari, Backcountry Gearhead

The Backcountry x Black Diamond collaboration is founded on the principle that two gloves are better than one: a breathable glove for the up, and a durable, fleece-lined leather glove for the down.

We created Flylow’s first women’s Polartec NeoShell bib together, a collaboration and innovation that we’re extremely proud of.

Dan Abrams, Co-founder, Flylow

This bib shines from sunup to sundown, and is prepared for whatever backcountry conditions may bring: everything from bluebird skies, blustery winds, steep skin tracks and (hopefully) waist-deep powder.
