It sounds cliche, but in 2012 Blue Ridge Overland Gear was literally born in a backyard shed in rural Bedford, Virginia, USA. Our founder, Matt Akenhead, called it the "Thread Shed." Armed with nothing but some material, a sewing machine, and a passion for adventure - a small business was born; dedicated to equipping outdoor and offroad enthusiasts with the highest quality bags, pouches, and gear organizers available.
Today we are no longer crammed in a small shed and our team has grown since the early days - but we are still a small batch manufacturer designing and building in the backwoods. We continue our passion for crafting rugged, American Made products that will last a lifetime.
We make and sell tactical grade bags, pouches, and vehicle organizers that will improve your overland travels. We focus on offering superior quality equipment that will give decades of service, help you stay organized, and evolve over time with your needs. What are you waiting for? Get out there and enjoy the journey!
