The idea for Overland Equipment started in Chico, California - a tucked-away town in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, where getting outside is a way of life. From finding the right thread, to hand cutting each pattern,to taking the time to stitch each bag so it lasts, we are committed to creating the best product possible. We started in 1981 with one sewing machine, a shiny pair of red scissors (now well used), and unmatched creativity. 30 years later our bags are still-and always will be-made with the same thoughtfulness, simplicity, and natural ruggedness of our Chico roots. You might own another bag, but your Overland Equipment bag is the one you use, Our bags are built to suit your active lifestyle. Regardless of your destination, the rugged versatility of our brand will make our bags your favorites. Overland Equipment bags are designed to accommodate all of the stuff you want to carry. We've built in a lot of extra features like the fleece-lined cell phone pocket, that's exactly the right size for your phone, and standard organizational features that come with all bags. People who have discovered Overland Equipment love our functional designs. All of our bags are built to last a lifetime. We use the most durable, highest quality materials available. The exterior is constructed with 840D ballistic nylon and 1680D ballistic nylon in all the highest-wearing areas. The interior has 210D ripstop nylon in contrasting colors to make it easy to find all the things you take with you everyday. For almost 30 years Overland Equipment has designed, developed and manufactured bags with the consistent intent of providing well-organized solutions for active, everyday use. We never cut corners on quality, materials, or style. We hope you will enjoy all the care that has gone into every detail of every Overland Equipment product we manufacture.
