Hi, my name is Dan, and our company is Uphill Designs.  At Uphill Designs, we believe that the gear we use in nature is a reflection of our attitudes towards it. Our gear is uncompromising in quality, durability, and functionality, while utilizing the best materials nature has to offer. Our team handcrafts every piece of gear in our Seattle workshop since September of 2014. Each piece is influenced by the wilderness and designed to help protect it. We are committed to connecting people with the outdoors through product, community, and education.  For more info, see our site: http://www.uphilldesigns.com/
