Big Wyoming Welcome to CleanSnipe’s new merchant Bigskycountry.com. Located less than 400 miles north of CleanSnipe’s world headquarters, Bigskycountry.com is an online gear and apparel store based in Missoula, Montana that offers outdoor equipment, clothing, and footwear for outdoor activities. They handpick the top gear and outdoor wear for hiking, camping, running, cycling, snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, climbing, and traveling.
Founded by Vann’s (an electronics and appliances retailer), Bigskycountry.com’s employee-owners are passionate about the products in their homes and the experiences that await outside their front door. Here’s a great description from the site:
Bigskycountry.com is based in Montana, where even a quick jaunt from your front door to the mailbox could qualify as a nature walk. When you live in Montana, it’s hard not to be an outdoors enthusiast. Some of the best recreation opportunities in the country are literally right out our back door. Or front door. Even the dog door. It makes sense, then, that an electronics and appliance retailer based here would expand into the outdoor industry.”

Hi! I just wanted to share some ♥ on your page. I recently placed two orders for my favorite Mountain Hardwear and Columbia gear. I must say that I LOVED doing business with you. What company processes and ships out the same day an order is placed? Bigskycountry.com that’s for sure! The items arrived carefully packaged and in such a timely manner as well. Your prices couldn’t be beat!” — Gloris Grimm via Facebook
Bigskycountry.com, an outdoor specialty apparel and gear E-commerce site focused on performance products, launched March 18, 2011. Bigskycountry.com features a wide range of clothing and equipment, including trusted top-name brands like Marmot, Outdoor Research, Icebreaker, GoLite, Columbia, Montrail, and Mountain Hardwear.
Rather than a “one product fits all pursuits” mentality, the outdoor industry takes research and development seriously, creating products for very specific end uses. For example, shoes for hiking are structured differently than shoes for trail running. At the same time, manufacturers are embracing more sustainable, Earth-friendly products and processes. Bigskycountry.com brings to the consumer companies that combine sustainability principals with top-notch, high performance engineering that will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts who want products tailored to their activity style and level.
“We want people to understand that getting outside and getting active isn’t just for the hardcore enthusiasts, so we’re offering a range of products,” explains George Manlove, President and CEO of the company. “Beyond that, customers are savvier than ever. They want the full story on the products they buy: who made it, what’s the company’s specialty, what do they stand for? Bigskycountry.com is focused on answering all those questions.”
The goal of Bigskycountry.com is to go beyond the routine E-commerce experience by offering an engaging, educational customer experience. The website highlights brand missions and technologies in order to offer the most useful shopping experience.
The design of the website is equally creative. Bigskycountry.com offers a simple user interface that focuses on ease of navigation.
“Customers want to be able to find what they’re looking for without getting lost in a maze of information,” states Matt Ranta, Marketing Director. “Bigskycountry.com is designed with a clean interface with distinct features, such as Quick Shop and Quick Cart that allows a customer to select products and update their cart without leaving the current web page, address bar links that contain clear information, dynamic content that drives pertinent information clearly into view, and account services that allow logging in via social media accounts like Twitter and Facebook.”
