About Active Roots

How Did We Get Started?

We are Will and DJ; a couple of backpackers trying to pursue their dreams and bring greater adventures to every traveler. Over the years, we have found ourselves wanting or needing the same gear over and over while on the road. Instead of going out and testing all the gear that's out there, we decided to make our own brand that represented more than simply travel products. We wanted to provide only necessary gear that will enhance your travels to help you enjoy them like never before. With that in mind, we collaborated to create Active Roots.

So, What is Active Roots?

Active Roots is a young, ambitious company for travelers, by travelers. Our founders are two devilishly handsome nomads that have explored over 100 countries between them. We believe that traveling the world is the ultimate learning curve and that by experiencing new cultures, adventures and challenges we can evolve into more awesome human beings. We know that reliable gear on the road is a must and we only offer top notch products that will enhance your journey. Our goal is to spread the spirit of adventure, to serve the nomad community and to make the world a better place by supporting noble causes near and far. 

Giving Back

The world has provided us with so much, so we think it’s only right for us to give back. A percentage of all Active Roots profits are donated to support causes that are important to the Active Roots family. One organization we work with is the Elephant Conservation Center in Sayaboury, Laos. This organization is dedicated to starting a new era for the conservation of the endangered Asian elephant species through various veterinary and rehabilitation practices. These guys are the real deal; they care for their elephants in a loving, respectable, humane way. With your continued support, we can help them provide a safe environment for this severely endangered species. Your purchase enables us to continue to support great causes around the world.
