Everyone has a duality to their lives – an urban side where we live and work and a wild side that longs to be outdoors. This parallel between the urban and the wild is what drives our innovation.
Thirty Third Parallel was founded by two ambitious and entrepreneurial brothers-in-law that share a deep-rooted calling to seek all forms of adventure. What was once a friendly face and fun conversation at family gatherings became a strong friendship that started in California years ago and converged in Dallas, TX. We hike, we camp, we ride, we hunt, we fish, we explore – we live! We have lived in small towns and big cities, traveled across continents and done some really awesome things along the way.
We soon realized that we were both consistently frustrated with the limited functionality of most portable lighting products on the market – so we set out to reimagine what portable lighting could be. The result of our efforts, along with our world-class partners and inspirational mentors, is a lighting system that is rugged enough for the outdoors, yet practical enough for everyday use. We constantly use our products – not just to enable our outdoor pursuits, but in everyday tasks such as, working around the house or lighting our backyards for a BBQ. We find new applications all the time and are incredibly excited to see how you will use our products – both in the urban and the wild!
We founded Thirty Third Parallel with a single goal: to develop the most modular personal lighting system available – one which enables you to get out and explore. Our expandable ecosystem of products helps bridge the gap between the urban and the wild – empowering you to get the most out of your adventures, whether in the city or on the trail. Find your way.
Growing up, we were fortunate to have positive role models that enabled and encouraged us to experience the world. Nothing brings us greater satisfaction than our ability to continue that tradition – not only with our own families, but within our community. We have partnered with Big City Mountaineers, a charity focused on providing under-served urban youth the chance to get out and explore the great outdoors – at the same time, teaching life skills such as leadership, confidence, decision-making and communication skills. Helping to foster and enable outdoor excursions and adventures for those who may not otherwise have the opportunity motivates our pursuit for success.
