We create tools
to connect people with their flow.
We all know the feeling.
That flow state when you're out in nature and completely in tune. When you're at a concert and fully in the moment or exploring a new city, feeling its electric energy. We create adaptable gear to help you click right into that. Living in flow is our North star as humans and as a company, and it's why we created MODL.

Who We Are
At our core, we're a small team of nature-lovers out to live an adventure. More than that, we’re humans striving to blur the lines and ~flow~ between work and play, self care and the grind, and staying positive while pushing to create a better future. To flow is to change and change is the only constant. This is the realization we live and design for.

We’re here to do dope sh*t while making the world a better place. We want to help as many people as possible live in flow by creating gear that gives you the freedom to do what you want, when you want. We all have different lifestyles, passions, and ways of connecting with our flow. We design gear to free up your mind so you can connect with your heart.

Curiosity drives our growth. We love to live in the questions. How does this thing we call the universe work? How can we help our customers live in their flow state? How can we create new systems that value people and the planet as much as profits? How can we make a better product?
Boldness is the key to making change. We aren’t afraid to step outside the box, seek discomfort, and rewrite the rulebooks if need be.
Honesty keeps us grounded. We're young, learning, and figuring it out everyday. We want to normalize making mistakes while striving to do good in the world.
Balance is appreciating the beauty that's here and now while recognizing we must do better for future generations. It's finding peace in the face of massive problems so that we stay motivated to keep pushing for a better future. To be in flow is to be balanced.
MODL began with a few friends on a weekend camping trip in 2017. Hunkered down in our tent, we noticed just how much gear was needed simply to meet our basic needs for water. That adventure sparked a curiosity for water. We wondered... what if we could have one tool for water that meets all our needs? After many nights of dreaming, we uncovered MODL - water's first multi-tool. Since our Kickstarter launch in 2019, we've been dishing out MODLs to customers around the world and we're still just at the beginning. The MODL you see now is growing and we are stoked to share what we've got in store.
And that brings us here, with you, in this little corner of the internet. We're thankful you found us, wish you all the best, and extend a hand to join our adventure.

Pillars of Fluid Design:
Just like water, gear should adapt to the environment. We're creating one system for water that works for everything - climbing, trekking, kayaking, or just a day in the life.
Water wastes no space. Neither should your gear. So, we create with food-grade silicone. Made from sand, we believe this is the future of water as it's super durable and easy to squeeze in those tight spots.
Water has no set function. Neither does MODL (modular + bottle). We created water's multi-tool so you can wield water however you see fit. And we're just getting started - new MODs and sizes are already in the works. If you have ideas, let's chat 💡
