David Gordon - BAMstand

What is the BAMstand and where did it come from?

Many years ago, when I was backpacking around the world and found myself at interesting places or had done something challenging, instead of a photo of just me standing there, I thought it was more fun to build a handstand album. I still collect photos of myself doing handstands when I visit somewhere new or I’ve just completed a new challenge. It’s a little bit quirky, and has evolved into the #BAMstand with many of BAM’s loyal customers contributing their own photos wearing a piece of our kit.

The Challenge

So, I’m inviting you to join in! Take a photo of your BAMstand in some BAM gear in an unusual place, after you’ve achieved some major feat or just to celebrate the joie de vivre. Then share it on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #BAMstand.

TheBAMstand Reward

If your BAMstand is any good, and in a great location, we’ll post your photo on our website and social media channels, and send you a free pack of bamboo socks.
