Our Story


VEDAVOO was born in my garage – where I taught myself how to sew on a classic sailmaking machine I bought on Craigslist. Having grown up in Wyoming, gear I used along the trail left me wanting more.  So I set out to design packs that were more comfortable, more versatile, and easier to use in the field – but, most importantly, ready to be made in the USA.

Our slogan – BETTER AMERICAN GEAR – reflects what we do and how we do it:  From my garage – to basements and dining rooms – to the New England workshop where we work today, our local craftsmen hand-build each of our products using the best materials (American and reclaimed wherever possible) for quality you can count on.

There may be easier roads – but they aren’t ours.
