About Us

At AFT Gear Garage, we are more than just a retailer of outdoor gear - we are a passionate team dedicated to enhancing your outdoor experience. Founded in March 2020 by Liyang Hao, also known as "Emily" in the hiking community, AFT Gear Garage was born out of a deep love for nature and a desire to provide fellow adventurers with the best gear and services possible.

Our journey began within the tight-knit community of Arabian FiTrekkers (AFT Mountain Adventures) in October 2016. Through countless local and international outdoor events, we found our tribe and discovered the transformative power of the great outdoors.

Driven by a commitment to quality, affordability, and sustainability, we embarked on a mission to bring the best outdoor gear to the UAE and GCC trail athletes. From trail running gear and hiking equipment to alpine products AFT Gear Garage offers a curated selection of products tailored to the needs of trail athletes and enthusiasts.

Our vision, encapsulated in our slogan "ALL FOR TRAILS," guides everything we do. We strive to be more than just a retailer - we aim to be a trusted partner on your outdoor journey. Our services include organizing trail running workshops, international trail running camps, and international race services. Working closely with certified mountain leaders, licensed adventure companies, ultra-endurance running coaches, and trusted race organizations, we are committed to providing the highest level of expertise and service to the trail community. 

At AFT Gear Garage, we are not just in the business of selling products - we are in the business of enhancing the outdoor experience. Join us as we explore the trails together and embark on unforgettable adventures.
