Gear brand allmansright is everything that’s great about the ever-expanding backpacking cottage industry. Livio Melo and Jennifer Jacobsson start with user experience and go from there, crafting dialed-in, well-thought-out gear from their tiny studio in the Bronx.
And while New York City might not be what you think of when you envision premium backpacking gear, Melo is here to tell you that his design inspiration is the sum of all his experiences, life in the Big Apple included. On top of that, Melo and company are dedicated to making the outdoors a more equitable space for all.
