Crazy about adventure, serious about people.
We’re Matilda and Kelly, the wife/husband co-founders of
Adventurist Backpack Co.
We have an incurable case of the travel bug, and we've set out to make the world's greatest backpacks - high quality, minimalist design for less than $100.
It all started with a backpacking trip around the world. While we were traveling throughout 2017, we witnessed and met with families that were struggling with hunger, which shed a light on a situation we realized we had heard a thousand times, but never actually witnessed. Anyone (including whole families) can end up in this kind of situation due to purely unlucky circumstances.
Wanting to do what we could to help, we prepared meals each morning and filled up our backpacks, handing the meals out to anyone in need throughout the day. After returning home to the U.S. and knowing there are still so many families in need in our own communities and cities, Adventurist Backpack Co. was started.
On these adventures that led us around the world and sparked our mission to give back, the amount of meals that we were able to fit into our backpacks was 25 each. Today we continue providing 25 meals from each backpack.
