About Us

The strengths and weaknesses of "gear" can be measured under a wide range of conditions and factors such as weather, terrain, weight, impact, ease of movement and design application/limitation just to name a few.  Having served our country for almost 30 years, both as an infantryman in the U.S. Army and as an operations officer in the C.I.A., I gained plenty of experience and lessons learned pertaining to gear and extreme conditions.  My goal is to combine those real world experiences with my love of the outdoors in order to make the types of quality and innovative products that exceed your demands. 

Superior quality material, craftsmanship, designs and customer service - seems like a pretty simple recipe to follow.  However, like so many other trades, the skills, knowledge and creativity that "make up" a master industrial sewer is a dying art form.  We strive to combine highly qualified craftsman with the best material in order to take the personal experience behind the "idea" and make it into reality.  I know you will appreciate the thought, time and craftsmanship that goes into everything we make. 


Thank you,
