Growing up in the west, Topo Designs®’ founders Jedd Rose and Mark Hansen were interested in not only spending time outside, but also in the gear needed to get out. They found themselves wishing there was a company offering a lineup a bit more like the gear they grew up using?classic styling, functionality, durability and a clear connection with the brand behind the product. So in 2008, Jedd bought a sewing machine and began concepting, designing, and sewing packs in his Fort Collins, Colorado basement. Meanwhile Mark set out around Denver and the front range looking for resources and partners to build those designs.
Today, Topo Designs is still in the business of creating durable, versatile, beautiful products that can be used around town, out on the trail and traveling the globe; simple, classic, well-designed gear inspired by their Colorado Roots.
