Meet the best shop crew in Boise

Backcountry Pursuit opened in downtown Boise in November of 2012

And since that time, we've just been growing! Over the years, we have become Boise's premier hybrid new/used gear shop.

We think we have the best customers in the Treasure Valley. The people who get after it every day. Climbers, backpackers, dirtbags, park rats, thruhikers, ultralighters, overlanders, whatever their moniker is, they need a place to get their gear. That's where we come in.

Last year, we shut down our Eagle location in order to expand our downtown store, and we even changed our name to better reflect what we do here. We renamed ourselves Boise Gear Collective because we couldn't do what we do without YOU, and without this awesome city we all get to call home.

Our mission is to provide opportunity and access to Idaho’s wild places with affordable gear, knowledgeable staff, and an inclusive environment. We hope to save the planet one piece of used gear at a time.

Our story is about more than just gear. It's about helping people experience all the sports and places that have changed our lives.

We believe that used gear is the key to providing access to Idaho's wild places while at the same time helping to preserve the beautiful places we have come to love.

If you're tired of big box stores, fear not! We are 100 percent local! Tyson, the sole owner of Boise Gear Collective founded this company and continues to direct it, though his role looks very different from when we started over 7 years ago. You can still find him in the shop, giving people directions to their next adventure, recommending a new take on someone's base layer system, or working hard on some new project he has for the store.

As for the rest of the crew, we love to talk shop about pretty much everything and anything. Come chat with us about your new piece of gear or your next adventure. If you can't make it into the shop, chances are you'll run into one of us up at Bogus, ripping down Hulls Gulch, or tracking big mile days in the White Clouds. Check out some of the staff bios below, and make sure to say hey when we see you out there!
