Introducing: Vargo June 23 2014
Founded in 2003 by Brian Vargo from Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA, Vargo manufacturers some of the lightest, most dependable, and innovative outdoor products available today.
What began as a personal quest by Brian to lighten his own pack after hiking the Appalachian Trial during the dawn of the ultralight movement has now become the driving goal behind Vargo as they strive to lighten the pack load for all outdoor enthusiasts around the world.
High-grade titanium is the base for most of Vargo’s products providing them with an unparalleled strength to weight ratio compared to any other metal-based product. Titanium is as strong as steel, twice as strong as aluminium, corrosion-resistant, biocompatible, flexible, and extremely light, making it the ideal material for camp and outdoor cook ware.
Vargo is focused on innovation through design and responsibility through manufacturing. With their “simple is good, good is simple” attitude their products find the perfect balance between form and function, and value without impacting on quality.
Sometimes Vargo see a product and improve it, other times they don’t see a product, so they simply make it. Either way, this approach has lead them to pioneer many industry firsts, such as the first titanium alcohol stove (the Triad) and the first anodised coloured titanium sporks.
Whether you’re hiking, trekking or cycle touring, heavy packs are a burden. Lighter loads provide for safer, more comfortable and enjoyable trips so you can go further, see more, and reap bigger rewards from your adventures.
That’s the philosophy Vargo bring to every product they make: do more with less. They want you to get the most out of the outdoors because that is what they want to do too.
