I founded Alum Equipment in the summer of 2018 after realizing there was a need for ultralight backpacks without lengthy lead times. Right now I specialize in making ready-to-ship ultralight backpacks along with custom orders, whatever that may be.
My passion for the outdoors started when I joined Boy Scouts and began hiking. I then dipped my toes into backpacking and got hooked. I then began trying to make my time in the outdoors as enjoyable as possible by lightening my load and thus got into ultralight backpacking. I then began making my own gear because I could not find what I wanted on the market. And at age sixteen I felt confident in my ability to make quality products and started Alum Equipment.
Now I explore my passion of the outdoors through backpacking, trail running, cycling, and rock climbing. I am currently studying Outdoor Product Design and Development at Utah State University where I am able to combine my passion for the outdoors and creating products.
