About Us

Have you ever been frustrated failing to find the quality gear you could depend on?
Have you ever wished there was gear designed to work in a damp and cold environment?
Well, we did, and that is what started the whole journey of PNWBUSHCRAFT. We were looking for heirloom bushcraft gear designed for the Pacific Northwest climate, and when we couldn’t find what we wanted, we decided to try and make it for ourselves.
We are huge vintage gear lovers and have always been inspired by the gear that has been passed down from generation to generation. We love using Grandpa’s old Coleman lantern, and each time we sit by the glow of the old lantern, we feel nostalgic. Can you hear the slight hiss of the fuel flowing into the mantels and see the slight pulsing of the light?
The smell of waxed canvas brings back memories of putting up the old army tent next to a creek with the family and spending the day wading in the water, chasing frogs, and drinking Mom’s homemade cocoa next to the crackling fire. Can’t you just smell the scent of warm canvas as you enter the tent to take your afternoon nap?
We didn’t plan on becoming gear makers, it just sort of happened. My husband was sharing what he had made for himself and people started to inquire if it was for sale, so we posted some items on Etsy and our journey began.
From the very beginning, we wanted to create quality heirloom gear you could depend on. We wanted outdoor gear we would be proud to send to people, and they would be proud to pass it on to the next generation. We wanted to be good stewards of the land by creating a product that wasn’t going to end up in a landfill next year.

We are always working hard to create rugged outdoor products by taking the extra steps to ensure your bushcraft gear will hold up. We double-fold our seams, reinforce our pockets with rivets, and finish our raw edges so you have the best handmade gear possible. We want our gear to last a lifetime and more for you. Our rugged waxed canvas is sourced right here in the USA from a company that has been in business since the late 1800s.
Running a family business is a learning experience,and we are all growing together. Thankfully, you are the most amazing people. You appreciate what we make, support us, and have some spectacular ideas. Some of our product lines has even been inspired by you, our customers. When you can’t find the high-quality gear that works for you, we take joy in solving that problem. We love that you trust us to make your ideal outdoor experience come to life. We really wouldn’t be where we are today without such awesome support from you and others in our outdoor community.

Heather, Todd, Linda and Amanda
