About Us

Bonfus is a small family business founded by Niccolo and Stefania Bonfadini.

We are outdoor enthusiasts who aim to create ultralight quality equipment with modern materials and design concepts. We love what we do and we are sure that you will also love our products and the benefits of using ultralight equipment.

We have been sharing a strong passion for the outdoors since a young age. While venturing in the mountains we began, as most people, with the standard, mass-produced and heavy equipment found at local stores, but we were never satisfied with what the market offered. We therefore started, initially as a hobby, to create our own ultralight equipment: quilts, down jackets, tents, packs, winter anoraks and various other accessories. The years passed, our skills in developing and sewing new gear got more refined, and we finally decided to found Bonfus to share our products with other outdoors enthusiasts that value lightweight equipment as a way to enjoy being out in Nature.

Bonfus started in early 2019 selling ultralight products in Norway and has in 2020 moved to Italy, where the EU branch is now based. From the end of 2020 operations expanded to cover all corners of the globe thanks to our lovely customers and the great retailers we cooperate with. All our gear is sewn directly by us in Mexico, where we run a workshop with talented sewing specialist.

We are proud of being able to directly control all the processes that go into the making of new products: early concepts, choosing materials and suppliers, prototyping, testing, prototyping again, (repeat…), refining details and construction, final production, marketing, and all the way to our amazing customers.

We believe that ultralight equipment can help you enjoy your adventures, because a lighter and smaller pack makes it easier to cover greater distances with less energy and strain on your body.  We hope that with our products we can inspire more people to get out there. 

If you have any questions about us or Bonfus, or just want to have a chat, don’t hesitate to contact us!

To be hiking in the mountains or climbing on a rock wall and to train my spirit through yoga and meditation is what makes me the happiest.
At Bonfus, you will find me overlooking the production department, working with marketing and with our suppliers/logistics!
