About Us

Our goal is to complement your lifestyle, exceed your expectations, and encourage you to do anything that gets you excited. We view life as an adventure and would love to be a part of yours.  Backpacks — especially hydration backpacks — are historically designed with men in mind.  It's time to focus on the women. Activewear is more and more a part of our daily lives, we deserve activewear accessories that suit our style just as much as they suit our needs.

BOTA has been two years in the making.  We released our first bag as part of a successful Kickstarter campaign, and have been working to bring our vision to life with a new look and new styles. New styles will be released monthly and only 300 of each style will ever be made. We did this in an effort to make your BOTA backpack special. We want to make sure our growth never compromises your individuality. 

Each backpack comes with a 1.5 liter hydration pack, which holds the equivalent of 3 bottled waters. We're hoping to do our part by reducing the number of plastic bottles purchased at festivals and events, giving you a more conscientious way to stay hydrated. Right alongside this, we're advocating for more easily accessible refilling stations at these events. 

We have partnered with water.org and will provide over 3.5 years of safe water to someone in the developing world when you use the hashtag #letsbota. All you have to do is post a photo in your BOTA hat or backpack and tag #letsbota and we will donate on your behalf! Doing good has never been easier.

Thank you for being a part of the adventure!  #LETSBOTA
