Why can't camping gear be like cheese: locally made, exceptionally high quality and meaningfully unique? Our goal at Bush Smarts is to personally procure, design and build a kit of gear that we think represents everything you need for a wilderness adventure.
We've scoured the globe to find obscure and under-appreciated gear, and we do whatever we can to make it more approachable for folks just getting into the outdoors, and more functional for seasoned pros.
Between John and me, there's over 40 years of camping, hiking, backpacking, bushcrafting and outdoor experience. Bush Smarts is our venture to combine what we know, what we love and what we do for a new generation of urbanites and mountain men alike.
If you're not sure where to start, check out our GET SMART pages. You'll learn more about our gear, how it's made and what inspires us to design, procure and make products to get you out there and safely back.
EMBRACE YOUR INNER WILD!
