The Story of DAJO Adventure Gear
DAJO Adventure Gear, LLC was created to
fight the high cost of quality outdoor gear. We were tired of leaving
gear shops frustrated and empty-handed not able to justify the high
costs of the products. Not only was it too costly, it was never exactly
what we were looking for. It was time to do something about it.
We design almost all of our gear here at
our home base in Colorado and manufacture overseas. Then, we pass the
savings on to the consumer. We run our business completely off the grid
from our 45 acres in the mountains. We love what we do and hope you
enjoy the results.
How Kevin got involved…..
It was twenty
years ago and Dave and I had just met as freshman at Indiana
University. We were hanging out at a local park and walking along a
creek when Dave asked “I wonder where this goes?” My reply: “There’s
only one way to find out.” And off we went on our first of many
adventures. Since then, Dave and I have moved to different parts of
the country, and vastly different lifestyles but we still both share the
desire to get out there and explore. I still get the call that
usually starts off with “Hey Kev, you wanna go check out…………? “ And my
reply is standard, “Sure, why not.”
Dave called me one day a few years
ago and told me he was going to start a gear company that made sense. He
wanted to focus on making gear that was lightweight, comfortable and
affordable. He needed a web presence and asked if I thought I could
come up with something. Sure, why not? I hope you enjoy the site.
Please feel free to send comments and suggestions. I will be expanding
the site soon to include a forum where you can share stories and
pictures of your adventures. Remember, take time to explore.
