They Say Good Enough
We Say Never Settle
As an outdoorsman and a father, packing, loading and managing gear was the part of each adventure that seemed to degrade the experience. From “how do I fit all this stuff?” to “where is my camera,” it was something I was constantly trying to improve upon. I tried plastic boxes on the roof, and numerous models of hitch racks, but nothing was the right size, and certainly none of it was easy or safe.
In 2012 I built the Original PAKMULE, inspired from the rigging on our coastal fishing boat. The curved edges, lightweight aluminum and rust free construction meant I could build it to haul a ton of gear, but without killing my back. In the process I focused on improving 4 inherent problems: Size, Weight, Access and Wobble. And so while using it over the course of the next year, from dove hunts in South Texas, all the way up through Yellowstone National Park and into Livingston, MT (to get an English Pointer) people were constantly stopping us to inquire about our rack. Why? Because it was designed to make life easier, not by an intern tasked with designing a cost effective hitch rack to add to the corporate product portfolio.
In 2017, with all our savings put into engineering, testing and inventory, we set out to help others too. To make it easier to Load and Go! To help people focus on what matters… on time with friends and family, pursuing those hobbies that really drive you, and rejuvenate you. Because we know if we can help make it easier to go, you’ll go more often. And maybe in that, you’ll see creation different, in a way that causes you to wonder, and to conserve. But also to make memories. Because in the end, that’s all you really leave behind.
