If you are like me, you want to buy American made products.
Today I want to introduce you to Mountain Ridge Gear. Not only is this a USA company, but everything from the materials they use, the thread they use, to the machines they use are all American-made.
You can be sure you are getting quality products when you shop with Mountain Ridge Gear.
Who They Are
I’m happy to report that Mountain Ridge Gear is also a family-based company located in Colorado. Not only that, but I know the family, and I will say they are outstanding people.
The founder, Eric, originally started making products as a hobby. It didn’t take long for others to take notice of his high-quality gear.
Mountain Ridge Gear has many different types of military quality gear but also makes gear to use for mules and horses. I will say the duffel bags, Cody pack, and smaller bags I have purchased are the best bags I’ve ever owned.
When you check out their website, you will see they make gear that is “over-build but not over-designed.” I believe this is one reason Mountain Ridge Gear has really taken off in the twenty-plus years.
One of the coolest things I was told about is that Mountain Ridge Gear was invited to the White House!
Sadly, COVID happened, but you can learn more about it here.
What I Enjoy Most
I have never used their gear with donkeys, or any animal for that matter. But, as I mentioned above, I use their duffel bags and smaller bags daily. They are perfect for everything from first aid kits, cords, electronics, snacks, and other miscellaneous items you can think of.
When I worked as a first responder, I had some heavy gear that would eventually rip other duffel bags. I can contest that these bags are built to last.
With over 70 pounds of gear, throwing it in the back of a car a few times a day, using the zippers multiple times daily, too, I am still able to use this bag as if it was the first day I purchased it.
If I had to say something negative, it’s that they keep making new stuff. After just looking at their website, I think the only bag I don’t have is their map pocket. So, I guess that will have to be my next purchase.
Need a few more reasons to shop with Mountain Ridge Gear? Well, here are a few, they have amazing customer service, easy to navigate website and fast shipping.
If you want to get your hands on quality gear that I personally will stand behind, you MUST check out Mountain Ridge Gear products.
Since I found them, I have given away most of my other bags and will continue to use and support them for as long as possible. That is the main reason I wanted to write about this amazing company. You will not be disappointed.
Once you give them a try, come back and let me know what you think.
