What we do

Allmansright is an outdoor gear lab that specializes in ultralight gear including backpacks, cross bags, sacks, food bags, wallets, and more. I personally design and handcraft (to order) everything out of my Bronx apartment and enjoy making things with the user in mind.

Our name is inspired by a Swedish Law known as “The Right to Public Access,” because we believe access to nature is ‘allmansright.’ We donate two percent of our monthly profits to organizations that protect and diversify the outdoors.

What makes us special in the outdoor industry?

As a BIPOC-owner from the Bronx with a degree in industrial design I bring a new perspective to the outdoor industry on ultralight gear which is still primarily a cottage industry.

Functionality and purpose is very important to me, and it shows in the designs we offer. I strive to make each product exciting and appealing to a diverse group of people. My ultimate goal is to have our gear inspire more people (BIPOC and inner city folks) to connect with nature!
