Our Story

Skout Backcountry is a family-owned, multi-generational company born on the high slopes of the rugged Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest.  

We combine the passionate pursuit of an adventurous lifestyle with a strong commitment to promoting environmental stewardship to give our consumers the fuel they need to power their ambitions. Skout exists to fuel every adventure with nomadic provisions that are uncompromisingly the best the backcountry has to offer. 


“As a trail runner, I have had such a hard time finding foods that sit well with me on the run. Skout Backcountry provides bars with ingredients that are easily digested, high in nutrients, and that pack a lot of energy in each bar. It’s hard to find products with so few ingredients that have such a great taste!”

– Jesse Rich, Trail Runner Nutritionist

What is the inspiration behind our line of field provisions? The unadulterated, natural majesty of the Pacific Northwest. All of our products are made from the best that nature can offer and embody the rugged and energetic spirit of the region. When it comes to provisions, we at Skout Backcountry believe that nature got it right the first time.

All Skout Backcountry provisions are made with big delicious chunks naturally dense with nutrients and packaged to fit your lifestyle in ready-to-travel packages.

 “Skout provisions work for me because of what they're made from: simple, good ingredients. Everything in them is what I normally snack on, so having them packed in a bar makes adventures much easier.”
