Scott’s love for the outdoors stems from fond memories spending countless nights under the stars as a Boy Scout, as well as adventuring with his five brothers and their father, Dean. Dean, an avid outdoorsman and backpacker, was not only known to religiously weigh each piece of gear before an outing but also to hike a mile from his home for an impromptu overnighter in the Arizona desert, just to test out new gear.
As Scott continued his father’s legacy of exploring the outdoors with his own five kids, he saw the need in the outdoor space for ultra-light gear that was not only light on his back but also easy on a budget. So often in the outdoor industry, the less a product weighs, the more it’ll cost. And that cost can be steep. The expense of ultra-light gear prevents many would-be adventurists from experiencing the rush of backpacking into remote settings.
No one should be sidelined from adventuring outdoors.
Near Zero was born. Near Zero gear is easily half the price of comparable brands, all while maintaining the highest quality and a weight as near to zero as possible.
Near Zero packs are so light that everyone in the family from independent toddlers to adventurous retirees and beyond can easily carry their own gear and get into nature.
Because Near Zero gear is engineered to be as close to zero as possible, carry distance isn’t an obstacle. So go far into nature and find healing. Seek out the calm from the chaos of daily demands.
Break from the burden of family pressures and fortify your family’s peace. Find serenity in a new setting far from the campground and city lights. Go deep into the outdoors and be free of devices to truly connect, interact, and unite with family and friends. Silence daily demands and savor the solitude only nature can provide.
