Materials We Use

Since 2012 Blue Ridge Overland Gear has been crafting durable, superior quality gear organizers for overlanding and the outdoor lifestyle. As a small batch American manufacturer, we design and sew our own products to be modular, easily customizable, and long lasting.

There are two reasons we offer our Blue Ridge Built lifetime guarantee on everything we make: 1) We design and build everything for durability. While other manufacturers seem to be making products to be thrown out after a couple years, we are building products that can be used and abused for years to come. Good craftsmanship is a choice. 2) We use better materials. Better materials make all the difference. From tactical Cordura brand nylon to super tough rip-stop fabrics and more - we provide premium products made of premium materials that are made to last.

BROG uses Cordura fabric to make high-quality, long lasting gear

Made with 100% high-tenacity, air jet-textured filament nylon fiber, CORDURA® fabric has a reputation for superior durability, excellent strength, tear and abrasion resistance, and also repels water. We use both 500 and 1000 denier Cordura on most of our bags and pouches.

MOLLE attachments made using Squadron fabric: long lasting and durable

The ultimate tactical fabric for plate carriers, chest rigs and other mil-spec gear, the Squadron® fabric is comprised of a double layer of Cordura nylon (500D Cordura laminated to 1000D Cordura) that is water repellent, NIR compliant, and designed for serious weight load when used in laser cut MOLLE applications.

Tire Storage Bag: made using high quality truck tarp for maximum durability
Truck Tarp

The truck tarp we use is a heavy duty vinyl coated polyester often used in bouncy houses, commercial trucking, and other critical applications. It is designed to stand up to: 1.) the elements, 2.) punctures, 3.) wear and tear, and 4.) tough environments.
