Active Junky - noun
1. Someone who is relentlessly drawn to the culture and lifestyle of all things adventure.
2. A person devoted to living an active lifestyle.
Do what you love and live your life on the edge. That’s the Active Junky motto. For the ActiveJunky.com team, their lives are dedicated to two things; adrenaline and gear. When they’re not in the office, you can find them skiing big mountain lines, surfing barrels on the coast, or hiking the closest 14er. ActiveJunky.com is more than a company, it’s a mission. A mission to provide more amazing days in the outdoors for Active Junky members. The most memorable days are when the gear disappears as head-to-toe comfort, safety and performance flow into epic experiences. Active Junky provides information, insight and gear at diverse price points and cash back to make more – and better – days possible for members across all seasons and the most popular outdoor pursuits.
