The team behind USWE grew up riding bicycles on the Swedish country side, searching for the toughest terrain and going as far out into the unknown as our bikes would take us. We stuffed our packs with enough food, water and gear to keep us and our bikes running until the sun went down. The packs at that time lacked in storage and were uncomfortable. They were made for walking…not riding. They just weren’t up to our riding adventure standards.
USWE started back in 2007 with a clear mission; to build Action Packs capable of withstanding the harshest conditions without feeling like you are wearing one. From day one, our product innovation has involved top athletes and weekend warriors who demand nothing but the best. It’s our core philosophy that a pack is worn, not carried – that has to stay fixed and balanced on your back, allowing you to bring all the necessities while you’re bombing the hills in great style.
Today we are a global brand designing bounce free action backpacks for athletes and weekend warriors, who rather spend two hours trekking through cold mud than 10 minutes in a shopping mall. Do our packs also work in sunshine during a nice morning jog? (Hey, does the hen lay eggs?) Of course they do!
WE ARE CHANGING THE GAME
USWE make bounce free action backpacks that provides the perfect fit on individual level. Developed and tested together with top athletes and core weekend warriors since 2007. Our mission from day one, is to design packs that you can wear in action, with a super race-fit so it’s like wearing nothing at all. That’s why we make action packs for the athlete in you.
We design bounce free action packs for people who’d rather spend two hours trekking through cold mud than 10 minutes in a shopping mall.
THE END OF THE DANCING MONKEY
Since the dawn of the traditional backpack, people all over the world have experienced the same uncomfortable sensation. Like there is a wild monkey pogo dancing inside the backpack. A monkey that makes the pack bounce up and down and swing from side to side. For decades, the industry has tried to stop the monkeys but with very limited success. Of course, we are not talking about real life monkeys. But we think it’s the perfect way to explain the difference between a USWE pack and the traditional backpacks. That´s why we have named our patented harness technology to “No Dancing Monkey™. Hey, by the way! We really like monkeys, but we try to keep them away from your back. That is our promise to you

UNISEX & MULTISPORT
Our NDM™ technology is developed for action sports. The technology works for both men and women in different sizes, but you need to add the action to feel the difference.

If you want to use them for other sports, that will work perfect as well!
OUR KICK-ASS PHILOSOPHY A backpack, like a glove, is worn and not carried. It is not a one size fits all kind of thing. It has to be fitted to your body to give the ultimate performance. We set our own standards, based on our own real life – mud crawling testing and the input that we get from our awesome athletes. All this together, makes it possible for us to push our product development harder and more dedicated than any other brand.
I’m using my USWE pack on daily basis. Not by power-walking, I’m doing the real stuff. Our product development involves all our crew, from management level to warehouse department. We’re passionate about our business. – Jacob Westerberg, CEO at USWE
