NEW YORK and PARK CITY, Utah, Aug. 1, 2017 — Today, Zola, the fastest growing wedding company in the country, and Backcountry, the leading online retailer of outdoor gear and apparel, announced an exclusive registry partnership. For the first time ever, engaged couples can register directly for outdoor equipment from Backcountry, only on Zola. Backcountry customers can also register for gifts, experiences, and cash funds on Zola. Backcountry will connect to Zola from its homepage.
Since 2014, the outdoor gift category has grown by 20% as more couples crave adventure and experiences they can share together. Gifts within this category like tents, backpacks, wireless speakers, and even camp stoves have skyrocketed in popularity. Now, any couple registered with Zola has immediate access to an even more robust assortment of adventure gifts through Backcountry, plus 50,000+ gifts in other categories and Zola’s unparalleled customer service, all in one place, and all for free.
“Millennial couples want to register for gifts that they will actually use, and wedding guests want to give gifts that have personal meaning to the couple,” said Shan-Lyn Ma, CEO and Founder of Zola. “We are thrilled to partner with Backcountry because not only are they pioneers in outdoor retail but also leaders in e-commerce. We know this outdoor collection will resonate quickly with our couples.”
Backcountry selected an assortment of products from some of its most successful brands to add as gifts on Zola. These brands include: Alite Designs, Basin and Range, Camp Chef, Deuter, Eureka, Exped, Granite Gear, Goal Zero, Jetboil, Kammok, Lowe Alpine, Mountainsmith, Rab, and Silva. Gifts range from the most popular, expected outdoor and hiking equipment to more unique gifts such as a solar panel for smartphones, hammocks and a compass.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Zola and enable adventurous newlyweds to get outside and create memories that will last a lifetime,” said Jonathan Nielsen, CEO of Backcountry. “Zola is the ideal partner as both our brands are laser-focused on providing the best possible online shopping experience.”
