The Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit is proud to announce that Near Zero Outdoor Gear has signed on as an exhibitor for the 2023 outdoor event taking place at the Findlay Toyota Center and surrounding grounds in Prescott Valley. The only thing better than Near Zero’s lightweight outdoor products is their story.
Near Zero’s creation stems from a love for the outdoors of company founder Scott Jensen and his fond memories of spending countless nights under the stars as a Boy Scout, as well as adventuring with his father and five brothers. An avid outdoorsman and backpacker, his father Dean, was known to religiously weigh each piece of equipment before an outing and to hike a mile from his home for impromptu overnighters in the Arizona desert, just to test out new gear. For years, Scott and Dean dreamed of starting their own outdoor gear company. Then in June 2018, Dean unexpectedly passed away from a heart attack. After his passing, that dream became Scott’s passion, and Near Zero was born.
As Scott’s business and product line grew, he realized making lightweight, quality equipment that could unlock access to the outdoors for anyone willing to strap on a pack was paramount. He made sure his tents were constructed with the highest quality fabrics and designed them so you could see unobstructed views and the night stars. Sleeping bags and camping accessories all had to pass the test his father would have put them through.
Then, in 2022 Scott introduced Near Zero’s newest backpack. THE DEAN backpacking system not only honors his father’s legacy, it inspires confidence in those seeking a respite from nature. It empowers and encourages everyone to get outside and experience the magnificence and simplicity of the great outdoors. Just like Dean did.
Near Zero’s gear is so lightweight that getting far into nature has never been easier. From independent toddlers to adventurous retirees and everyone in between, no one should be sidelined from getting into nature.
