Outside, a leading adventure and active-lifestyle publication, dug deeply into the story of a young American BASE jumper who was seriously injured in Switzerland and how his World Nomads' coverage got him back home.

US residents are able to get World Nomads cover for BASE jumping, an extreme sport that many travel insurance companies won't touch.

"We believe in supporting adventurous travelers," Phil Sylvester, the head of communications at World Nomads, says. "So we negotiate with underwriters around the world to cover as many of those activities as possible. We like to think that we're the market leader as far as long-duration and adventure travel goes."
