About Adventure Pending

Whether you’re getting outdoors to accomplish something new, take time to clear your head, or even just soak up a good old dose of Vitamin D – we’re with you. In fact, this is exactly why we created Adventure Pending.

Adam and Ann, Adventure Pending Co-Founders

We’re Adam and Ann – founders of Adventure Pending, keen travellers, and outdoor enthusiasts. In March 2020, we were forced to cancel our long-term travel plans and fly home from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia when the world came to a halt. 

To fill the void left by the pandemic, we decided to move to Cumbria and found a new love for hiking in the Lake District. 

This prompted us to start building a collection of sturdy, outdoor gear that would support our adventures year-round, no matter what the Great British weather threw at us. This had to be high-quality, affordable, and good enough to stay with us when we eventually returned to world travel. 

It quickly proved difficult to find honest gear reviews online as we sifted through #sponsored Instagram posts and fake product audits, so we set about building our very own platform.

Since then, we’ve worked with a number of top outdoor brands including Osprey, Heimplanet, Roark, and OLPRO to share our favourite travel and outdoor gear with people like us. Simply put – we want to help you find the very best equipment for your pending adventures (get it?).

If you’re looking for recommendations ahead of your next trip, feel free to browse our product reviews or get in touch – we’re always happy to help!

Brands: The Adventure Pending team is currently open to new collaborations – if you’d like us to put your outdoor gear to the test, don’t hesitate to send us a line.
