ROAM : Backpack and Apparel Company
Colorado Designers Release Travel Inspired Line
ROAM, a new Colorado based backpack and apparel company, announces the launch of
their inaugural line and website. The brainchild of Mike Delaney and Sammy Steen, ROAM is heavily
influenced by the duos time spent on the road and their experiences along the way.
Conceptualized in Colorado, Delaney and Steen spent early 2012 combining their creative gumption,
making cut and sewn creations out of repurposed old gear. From their Breckenridge workshop the line
started to take shape. “Travel integration was a focal point” said Delaney, “We were always striving to
make intuitive designs for the modern day traveler, people on the move… people like us”.
After a summer spent commercial fishing in Alaska the two planned their next move. In the true spirit of
ROAM they decided to make the pilgrimage overseas in search of skilled manufacturers to help them
produce the first line. Forgoing more traditional manufacturing areas, they were looking for a hands on
approach and found a perfect fit in Bali. “We were in search of a more organic manufacturing process”
said Steen “working closely with our tailors we were able to focus on quality and the small details, not to
mention we were in Bali and inspiration was everywhere.”

ROAM is based out of Denver, Colorado
