The company

At Adv3nture, we create superior garments and gear - fun, functional, and ready for anything you meet along your path.

We’re also committed to giving back to the planet that provides us so much to explore. For every purchase you make, we plant three trees - to better the air we breathe, support healthy ecosystems, and create more wild places for us all to roam. We’ve partnered with the Archangel Ancient Tree Archive to select the most beneficial species and locations for planting - >>> learn more about our Three Trees initiative.

In addition to giving back to our beloved planet, we believe that exploration is the key to discovery, personal growth, and a life well-lived. That’s why we invite you to join us on our journey through the unfamiliar - and feel yourself come alive. No matter what you’re called to explore - a new neighborhood or country, taking a trip abroad or embarking on an internal journey of self-discovery, we want to come along for the ride.

The Crew

Zane

After years of traveling to over 65 countries on 6 continents (with perhaps a drink or two along the way - cheers!) Zane put his design degree to work and created the Drinking Jacket,  an innovative hoodie with a beverage pocket and bottle opener zipper. Then, in 2016, with the goal of creating the world’s best traveling companion, Zane released the Adv3nture Hoodie - which became the most successful apparel Kickstarter ever. The rest is history.

While traveling the world, Zane saw things that solidified his concern for the world’s natural habitats. Living in California among extreme droughts, monumental forest fires, and occasional deluges of rain (with accompanying mudslides), Zane has also become acutely aware of detrimental environment conditions impacting American communities. With a simple desire to help where he could, Zane decided that the Adv3nture brand would give back to the planet - by planting trees.

MEL

Before Mel was a Lamprey, she was a producer on Drinking Made Easy, a television show upon which Zane happened to host. This unexpected but fortuitous meeting allowed (forced) them to experience the ups and downs of nonstop travel, together. A long-time hiker, world traveler, and National Park lover (actually, obsessive), Mel found she shared her passionate enthusiasm for the wild outdoors with Zane, and their marriage brought together their mutual enthusiasm for the natural world and their passion to create and inspire.

Thus, the Adv3nture brand was born - the result of eight years of travel and exploration along with a wish to improve our planet’s health. Mel is committed to “fix our shit,” as she (charmingly and politely) likes to say. Additional passions include: animals, indigenous and domestic rescue, food, and her twin sister.

ERICA

A native of Michigan, Erica was raised with a love for the outdoors and all the seasons.  After moving to LA, she began working in the apparel industry, focusing on garments known for exceptional quality and function - and with companies who valued giving back to the Earth. From there, joining the Adv3nture team was a natural fit.

Like Zane and Mel, Erica is a world traveler, always willing to explore the unknown, and constantly seeking to fulfill her best life with her husband and family while giving back to her community. A secondary passion of hers is doughnuts - which she is no longer allowed to bring to the office, no matter how fancied up they are. And we mean it, Erica.
