Brand 44 was started in 2011 by Edward OBrien. A Colorado native, Edward wanted to create Backyard Adventures - recreational activities that family members of all ages and other groups could enjoy out of doors anywhere. Brand 44 is a distributor of licensed Boy Scouts of America® products, Slackers® brand Slacklines and Ziplines. In April of 2012, Brand 44 acquired the Geomate.jr. product line. This great addition to their expanding line of adventure products encourages young people and their families to get outside, explore their world, and learn more.
