Gaard One made its debut as a company on Indiegogo 2 weeks ago. Our Power of One set of gear has made quite the splash in the community of 21st Century Outdoor Enthusiasts with our revolutionary, interchangeable system. To date, we are 77% funded, with 23,020 ft2 of land to be conserved (that’s nearly the size of two Olympic swimming pools!).
In the aftermath of hurricane Florence, we are reminded that no one is immune to emergency situations. During our Indiegogo campaign, many followers approached us with ideas about how our high-tech set of gear could be a huge resource in the case of emergency.
Over the last few months, we have had the very first versions of our gear out in the field thanks to a handful of amazing brand ambassadors, partners, influencers and other 21st Century Outdoor Enthusiasts.
Appreciation of the outdoors runs deep in the Heegaard bloodline. Passed down through the generations, babies were strapped to the backs of their parents before they were old enough to hike, fish and hunt on their own. The story of Gaard One hinges on the heritage of the Heegaard family, a story rooted in the wilderness and freedom that comes with the absence of pavement and sometimes even cell service.
