D_b_ was founded in Norway by engineer Truls Brataas and freeski legend Jon Olsson. Their goal was simple - to redefine travel gear and enable meaningful journeys. Today, we’re still independently owned and spend our days designing backpacks, carry bags, luggage, and accessories for the creative outdoors.
After over a decade in the game, we’re proud to have several awards to our name. These include four Red Dot design awards, six Gazelle awards following exponential growth, multiple ISPO design awards and Truls was a recipient of the International Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the year award. Our team of 60 people are located across our headquarters in Oslo, Norway and smaller studios in Stockholm, London, San Francisco, Chamonix and Ericeira.
