At WASP (Wilderness Adventure & Survival Products), we are dedicated to creating handcrafted camping and outdoor gear-right in the US.

The outdoor industry market brings in nearly $1 trillion a year in total revenue, and despite the typically large margins associated with textile products in this space, very few brands out there focus on handcrafte, custom made gear.

Our products are perfect for the quality-minded consumer and are at home in a number of verticals including: hunting, fishing, backpacking and hiking, and survival and emergency.

We are also entering the first responders and tactical gear verticals with our handcrafted sling lines, including our newest product our Full Size Ax Sling-which provides a handsfree solution to carrying full-sized axes. Perfect for firefighters and those who work with large handtools on a regular basis.


People who are looking for quality camping, hiking, and hunting products that are handcrafted in the United States.

Our goal is to within 5 years, build a successful outdoor gear brand while phasing out new plastic use.  We intend on doing that by using newer textiles and cloths, such as hemp, wools, and cotton, which are all materials that can be managed and sourced in a sustainable way. 

What I Will Do With $5,000

Increasing our raw materials buying power and taking advantage of economies of scale.
Research and development for new products.
Investing money into our marketing in order to gear up for the holidays.
