The LiteAF Journey:

Founded in 2018, LiteAF began as a passion project to create custom ultralight hiking gear for a 2018 Appalachian Trail thru-hike. Dissatisfied with market offerings, our founder, Chris, embraced self-taught seamster skills, leading to an unexpected surge in demand. From a spontaneously created Etsy shop to an award-winning company, LiteAF’s line has expanded to offer a diverse range of ultralight gear. Join LiteAF in embracing minimalism and functionality, sewn together for the lighter side of life.
