Exclusive Trek Giveaway! Win an Osprey Exos 58 with Afletik
Afletik (formerly Amplefind) is part of a new trend of curated online shopping you might be familiar with. They hand select thousands of items within the sporting and outdoors industry, from essentially every store and brand you can conceive of. Ideally, this eliminates the need for consumers to scour the depths of the web…. pretty much anything you’re looking for will be right there on the site. The items aren’t randomly selected either—the sporting goods on Afletik are only the items with the best consumer reviews.
Getting the site off the ground didn’t come easily. Afletik founder Nick Zamanov lived out of his Volkswagen Jetta in San Fransisco for nearly six months to fund his online shopping platform. The idea came to him after a friend had trouble buying soccer gear, and realized there was no specific online sporting-goods outlet where all the items could be found. He pared his expenses down to $200 a month for the six months it took him to code and launch the site.
This is a relatively new business model—Afletik has only been around since 2015. Currently, they maintain around 500,000 products for sale at any given time, including backpacking gear from favorite brands like MSR, Marmot, Kelty, NEMO, Osprey, Sawyer, Gregory, Western Mountaineering, REI, and more. Users can peruse and sort the selections based on price, material, weight, brand, and more.
Afletik is doing an exclusive giveaway for Trek readers, and one lucky backpacker will take home an Osprey Exos 58.
