Another group of former Cabela’s Inc. employees has helped launch an e-commerce website offering outdoor and active lifestyle gear. Several avid outdoorsmen and women teamed up to form Nexgen Outfitters, based in Sidney, NE.
“Nexgen Outfitters was born out of a passion for the outdoors,” said Trent Santero, co-founder of Nexgen Outfitters. “We spend countless hours in the field with friends and family every year, demanding the very best from our gear. We believe in equipment that builds tradition and gear that can be handed down to the next generation to ensure the future of our lifestyle.”
As SGB Media reported last year, Bass Pro sued two startup retailers in Sidney, NE, started by former Cabela’s managers—Nexgen and Highby Outdoors—charging they stole proprietary information and violated non-compete agreements in starting their businesses. Bass Pro acquired Cabela’s in September 2017.
The other startup from former Cabela’s employees, Highby Outdoors, launched earlier this year. Click here to read Former Cabela’s Employees Launch Highby Outdoors.
In addition to selling gear from world-renowned outdoor brands, Nexgen is designing and building its own Nexgen-branded products.
“Our goal is more than just outfitting you for your next adventure,” Santero said. “It’s about ensuring that future generations can experience the outdoors the way we did growing up.”
