The Backcountry.com app is made for any time, any place gear shopping. Imagine you're riding shotgun down I-25 through Colorado with all the gear you need for your epic three-week Baja adventure packed in the back of your friend's truck.

Easy.

The Backcountry.com app is simpler, more streamlined and more modern than the online store itself. The intuitive interface makes it easy to shop by letting you scroll through product images, videos and reviews, and check out related product links as well. Plus (seasoned online shoppers will appreciate this), you can add items to your cart without ever leaving the page you're viewing. This convenient little feature goes a long way in keeping you in a mellifluous state of Zen.

“This app fits the nature of Backcountry.com customers. They're active and they're tech savvy,” said Eischeid. “If anyone needs app-enabled shopping, it's the outdoor set, the people buying outdoor gear.”
