DO MORE. TRAVEL HARD.

We travel because the best things in life are not things at all—they are the experiences we earn and the stories we share. Matador started in 2014 with the vision to bring outdoor-industry expertise to the pursuit of travel. Real equipment, built for you to experience more and adventure often.

Simplicity

Matador products are conceptualized with a specific application in mind. We methodically choose features that are necessary, and eliminate those that are not. By avoiding added frills and gimmicks, Matador Equipment performs better at what it was designed for.

Innovation

We are not afraid of new and different—if it's better. By constantly testing the boundaries of industry standards, we aim to create more efficient and effective ways to pack and travel. With the application of cutting edge materials and advanced construction techniques, we sweat the details so you don't have to.

Ethics

We believe sustainability is a necessary business practice, not a marketing strategy. From our in-house repair program, to ethical manufacturing decisions, to carbon neutral freight carriers, we work behind the scenes to hold ourselves to a higher standard throughout our business. We must do our part to preserve the planet we enjoy endlessly exploring.
