Our Story

Trek Light Gear - Seth & Heather Haber

Trek Light is the husband and wife team of Seth & Heather Haber (along with a small but mighty kaleidoscope of support, partners, and suppliers that make it all possible!).

Founded by Seth in 2003 in Boulder, Colorado, Trek Light began with a simple mission: to build a business with heart.

A business that would be centered on happiness, a business that would give back with every sale, and one that would inspire its customers to share that happiness with others.

Or, in seven words: Feel Good. Do Good. Pass It On.

Trek Light's first product was the epitome of that mantra: A lightweight, portable hammock designed to go on any outdoor adventure that could also be used to relax, and even in sleep in full-time, right at home. Seth traveled around Colorado in the early 2000’s sharing his vision of hammock-inspired happiness, and combined it with a tree planting program that planted trees for every hammock sold.

Seth & Heather met by chance in 2013 while waiting for a taxi in Boulder (how awesome is that?!). The sparks flew, phone numbers were exchanged, and the rest is history.

Almost immediately, Heather began bringing her own giant heart and style to help Trek Light expand and grow into the vibrant lifestyle brand it is today.

Together, Heather & Seth were driven to keep building and reimagining Trek Light as a brand that wouldn’t be defined by a single product or industry - but by the happiness it brings you, the community it builds, and the good it accomplishes.

Today, two decades in, our mission continues stronger than ever.

Our product line continues to expand - from our bestselling throw blankets to apparel, home décor, and lifestyle accessories.

Through it all, our products share a common heart and soul:

Spreading happiness and promoting kindness. Giving back to the planet. Sharing the joy of adventure - whether you find it in travel, live music, or your own backyard. Encouraging us to spend more time outdoors and to live with gratitude. And enabling all of us to capture those memories and feelings we find in those moments - and bring them back home with us when we need them most.

Thanks for being part of our story.
Thanks for supporting a business with heart.
And thanks for being you.
