Blue Ridge Overland Gear: Premium overlanding gear and rugged storage solutions for your off-road vehicle and outdoor adventures.

Our story


It sounds cliche, but in 2012 Blue Ridge Overland Gear was literally born in a backyard shed in rural Bedford, Virginia, USA. We called it the "Thread Shed." Armed with nothing but some material, a sewing machine, and a passion for craftsmanship - a small business was born; dedicated to equipping outdoor and offroad enthusiasts with the best bags, pouches, and gear organizers available.

Today we are no longer crammed in a small shed and our team has dramatically grown since the early days. We continue our passion for manufacturing rugged, American Made soft goods and gear organizers for adventure seekers.


We make and sell premium overlanding gear to make it easier for you to enjoy your time outdoors. We focus on offering high quality equipment that will give decades of service, help you stay organized, and evolve over time with your needs.

Premium quality

We are passionate about keeping the American legacy of quality manufacturing alive and well. We believe the relationship between the product and the maker is honest. The quality of the product is a direct reflection of the craftsperson.

Guaranteed For A Lifetime

We design and make our products to far exceed the typical lifecycle of our offshore competitors. We use premium materials and 'build' our products to endure. Everything we make comes with our 'Blue Ridge Built' guarantee - for life.

Built For Adventure

Travel the globe, or just hit the trails for a weekend. No matter how you use our gear, we have built it to make your adventures easier and more organized. Our goal is to help you enjoy the journey.
