Hey friends, today I have a pretty awesome announcement!

For over a year now, I’ve been working on a top secret project and today, I am ready to unveil a backpacking adventure gear company that will change the way you travel forever..

Meet, Active Roots.

About a year ago, a friend of mine reached out with a fantastic idea, a proposition of epic proportions if ye will…

You see, this friend of mine, who goes by the name of DJ, has been on the road for many moons just like me and we both diehard adventure junkies.

DJ and I are both super experienced travellers and we know that when you’re off adventuring, you need gear that is tough, reliable and versatile. The thing is, there are so many overpriced products out there that it’s hard to get value for money and so we set off upon a mission, a holy quest, to design the highest quality backpacking adventure gear at a broke backpacker friendly price.

We have a grand vision for the future and intend on shaking up the world of awesome lightweight adventure gear!

To start with, we are offering…

Kick Ass Hammocks

Super Sexy Microfibre Towels

Backpacker Security Belts to Hide Your Cash

Active roots products

These are three items that ever noble adventurer, or adventuress, should have when they hit the road and we hope you will give our new company a shot and try us out.

We stand by our products and offer a lifetime money-back guarantee on everything we sell.

Best of all, me and DJ both like elephants (I mean, who doesn’t right?) and so we decided early on to donate a portion of all Active Roots profits to the Elephant Conservation Centre in Laos.

If you’re a long-term follower of The Broke Backpacker and have found my stories, guides and articles useful now is your chance to support the site by checking out the Active Roots Store.

What is our final score for the Active Roots gear compared to other backpacking brands out there? We give it a rating of 4.6 out 5 stars!
