I've been on Massdrop since 2013 and I've definitely seen it boom but it seems more and more that a lot of the products being featured are geared towards higher-end and well-known brands. This is awesome! I have no problems with that but I've also seen a decline in smaller vendors and as a result, instead of just complaining about it, I'd like to introduce an acquaintance from college who has taken a risk, left his job to follow his passions and develop a company around lightweight backpacking. He's just starting out but at the same time, he's willing to spend time developing his craft along-side those who wish to do the same, whether they can afford his products or not. So please, take some time to check him out.
He'll be releasing a new line of ultralight backpacks this Monday December 19th so be on the lookout!
