About Us

The Northbound Story

Northbound Train was born out of a passion for the great outdoors and a desire to help others get the most out of life. As a bunch of kids raised in Wisconsin, our love of camping and other “safe adventure” was practically required by law, but the low quality of most outdoor gear is almost criminal. So, we decided to make our own.

It all started with a (much) better headlamp and grew quickly. After just two years, we’d already delighted over 25,000 customers throughout the United States and began applying the same high standards to designing first aid kits, micro-fiber towels, camping lanterns and other new products. Today, our gear is among the best rated and reviewed on Amazon. (Just read the customer comments below).

Superior Products that Solve Problems

Our mission revolves around solving two common problems with adventure gear: It’s not really versatile enough to handle all the different situations life throws your way – and it’s not durable, portable or comfortable enough to use regularly for long periods of time. So, every single product we sell is unbelievably durable, uncompromisingly comfortable, unbelievably versatile and unwaveringly reliable. 

We’re so sure you’ll love our stuff we also back it unconditionally with a lifetime warranty and 100% satisfaction guarantee. Try it. Love it. Or we’ll buy it back. No questions, no hassles, no messing around.

But the Real Secret to Our Success is You – your input, your feedback and your ideas. So, anytime you have a suggestion, we hope you’ll share it. In the meantime, get outside and get the most out of life. We’re with you every step of the way.
