The Vast Unknown

The Vast Unknown is a travel brand that represents backpackers all over the world. We welcome everyone from seasoned travelers to potential backpackers!

The Vast Unknown Backpacking Company is a travel brand focused on spreading creativity through clothing, backpacking gear, and essentials for backpackers traveling the world. We make custom designed hoodies, sweaters, tanks, and t-shirts that express our view of the world and we work with backpackers to bring the public original backpacking gear with a unique twist. We enjoy working with backpackers who have a creative side, allowing them to create their own designs while giving them 10% of each sale.

The goal of our company is for half of our gear to be 100% fair trade material. Supporting workers in developing countries while spreading love, peace, and kindness is who we wish to become. Each quarter, The Vast Unknown donates 15% of its earnings to our quarterly charity.

[11/03/16]   TVU will be in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Israel, Jordan and Hawaii starting in January. Be sure to tag your Instagram photos with our #TheVastUnknown for a chance to win a TVU Hoodie!
