I read a while back that the business was moving to Montana. Has anyone learned more on the subject. They make some fine wool packs. I happen to own two and would like to inquire if they still do repairs.

I'd be interested if they aren't outsourced.

Bison Gear made some good packs, however, I personally never used any of them. My brother had a couple different ones and really liked them. About 30 years ago I bought a pack that I've used mainly for white-tail hunting and just replaced it with a new one last year, it's about as handy a day pack I think you can get. Gary Christoffersen is the owner of "Day One Camouflage", near Denver CO and made in the USA. Check it out.

I have heard this for the last 6 months. I tried reaching out to him several times with no response. I wonder if he is going to start it back up or not. I want a new pack if your listening!

Currently we are not taking any orders as we are in the midst of moving our production facility across the country and will not be back up and running until the Spring. Thank You for your patience, and stay tuned for OUR RELAUNCH!

Guy's Bison Gear is a side business for Ang, he has a job that is very demanding and a growing family, give him some slack. I'm sure he will be up and running soon. I'm pretty sure the lady's that did his sewing are not moving with the business, so he needs to find a facility and well as train a new crew to produce product.
