In 2016, a friend of ours, Dylan Tonkin (trail name "Pickle"), decided it was his time to break away from the comforts of the corporate life and embark upon a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail (or AT for short). In this short interview, we asked Dylan his thoughts on dreaming about, committing to, and completing a successful thru-hike.
In 2002, VARGO was started with the belief that great outdoor gear is all about pairing the best materials with simple, innovative, and functional designs. Titanium was the obvious choice for our hard goods due to its durability and lightweight strength. Over a decade later, we are proud of how far we have come thanks to a little imagination and the support of our dedicated customers.
