Lewis Mull loved adventure and believed there should be a place where others like him could go and find the quality outdoor gear they needed. With this vision in mind, he started Backwoods in 1973. And over the years, we have evolved. Lewis' daughter Jennifer, CEO since 2003, has taken Backwoods and expanded its reach without losing the original authenticity.
