TripTarpTM was developed by a professional backpacking guide and team of Emmy Award-winning information design creatives, along with extensive insight from a collection of outdoor professionals and hikers. We ran a very successful campaign on KickStarter to raise the necessary funds to bring TripTarp into reality. We were overwhelmed by the amount of interest it generated from experienced backpackers and newcomers from across the USA and worldwide.
The product was born from a need to ensure that packing decisions made in the frontcountry didn't dictate decisions made in the backcountry. It formalizes a process already used by adventure travelers the world over.
Our goal is to ensure every backcountry adventure follows the map as closely as possible.
We stand for balancing wilderness preservation with open access for all, and creating products solely to promote that mission.
