Big Agnes

Big Agnes manufactures the most comfortable tents, sleeping bags and sleeping pads for backpacking, camping and outdoor adventure. They have traveled the globe and searched nearly every continent for fabrics and materials in an effort to make the gear that they think you'll want to use because it's what they use and what they have put through real life, backcountry testing. Their urge to sleep under the stars and breathe fresh mountain air is what continually drives them and keeps them motivated. Thank You!


Arcade makes belts. They're stretchy and they work better than anything that's been wrapped around your waist before. There are little things in life that don't work as well as they should. One of those things is your belt. Holes punched in leather straps are a medieval era invention. Nylon webbing with aluminum clamps are a token of big brands slapping logos on cheaply made crap. Arcade belts were invented, designed and styled with the modern shredder in mind. Thank you!

We're leaders in our category, packing heritage, safety, design sensibility, and street smarts into every product. Based in the Pacific Northwest, we've got the great outdoors at our doorstep. From valleys and peaks to banks and backlands, the grounds we roam makes us feel at home. Together with our network of respected retailers, we give everyone the the freedom to wander, the right to be unruly, and the confidence to go more rogue. Thank you!


We make gear that helps you stay out longer, travel farther, and live harder. Our Story: In 2006, we founded YETI Coolers with a simple mission: build the cooler we'd use every day if it existed. One that was built for the serious outdoor enthusiast rather than for the mass-discount retailers. One that could take the abuse we knew we'd put it through out in the field and on the water. One that simply wouldn't break. We decided early on that product innovation would come from necessity and firsthand experience - not from market research and data analysis. Today, YETI products perform when it matters most - whether that be an excursion into the remote Alaskan wilderness, chasing redfish on the Gulf coast, or just getting together with friends in the backyard. Thank you!

David opened up his personal gym to Travis, offering his training expertise. The pair started working out together, customizing and adapting to the unique challenges posed by Travis' injuries. Through working with Travis and engaging the veteran community, David developed a passion for helping those with life-altering injuries find life-fulfilling adaptive performance training. He continued helping adaptive athletes create sustainable lifestyle changes over the next six months, and by September of 2014, Adaptive Training Foundation had received its 501(c)3 status to allow outside support for these ambitious athletes.

Thank you!

The Kelly Brush Foundation

An active lifestyle fuels a healthy body and mind, allowing us to be the most full version of ourselves. For those who have experienced a spinal cord injury, being active can feel out of reach. The obstacles are real: physical, financial, and even the belief it is possible. The Kelly Brush Foundation (KBF) is dedicated to making active lifestyles a reality for those who have experienced a spinal cord injury. We offer the inspiration to believe and the grants to enable anyone to buy the equipment they need to get out and go. But the KBF funds more than just recreation, because when you're out there on the hill, road or trail, as your heart rate rises and you feel the wind on your face, disability fades away. An active lifestyle forges connections with others - both new friends and old, in and out of a chair. Thank you!

22 Kill
