In 1990, Hubert van Ham started Radical Design. As a repair-technician for outdoor shops and with a passion for mountaineering, the goal was to make backpacks that excel in reliability and simplicity of construction.
In all these years, this vision has not changed and Radical Design designs and manufactures a wide range of top quality outdoor products with a team of enthusiastic and highly skilled personnel.

My mother called me the wanderer because as soon as I was free from school, I would enjoy to be outside cycling, skating, climbing in trees of running or I would be training for gymnastic of riding horses. When I was tired, I would sit down with a book and my cat on the laps. My father wanted me to be an executive secretary. No way! I thought. I would never sit more than 5 minutes at a desk!
Before I met Hubert, I was a nurse and was travelling around the world, working in Paris, in Abu Dhabi, then in Santiago in Chili where I met Hubert. When he came back to the Netherlands, he started his company. We cut and sewed a lot of bags together. From this time I stopped nursing. We have got two daughters and I started yogic studies to be a yoga teacher. And now I am not sewing anymore but sitting at a desk . My father was right. He knew that I would do something like executive secretary! Well, when I am finished with the papers, I enjoy a walk with Hubert and also to give some yoga classes.
My favourite holiday, if needed at all, is walking with the Wheelie, camping, climbing or cycling. Outside in any case!
