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.

Our Kick-ass Philosophy

Our NDM technology is developed for action and performance sports. The technology works for both men and women in different sizes, but you need to add the action to feel the difference. The 4-point adjustment straps are there for you. It makes you adjust the perfect fit for your body. Its easy to do and it works 100%.

A backpack, like a glove, is worn and not carried. It is not a one size fits all kind of thing. It must 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
