Our Customer Stories Project represents a year long journey, delving into the lives of individuals who choose Trakke as their everyday companions. Through their careers, adventures and everyday routines Trakke always has their back.

To make our Customer Stories Project a reality we enlisted the help of world-renowned photographer and friend of Trakke, Dan Rubin. He travelled the length and breadth of the country meeting the inspiring individuals who bring Trakke to life.

We often say people make Trakke. These are the people who use our bags and love our bags.

This is their story...
