Overland Equipment, manufacturer of bags that provide well-organized solutions for active, everyday use, is pleased to announce it has named Megan McGovern as Sales and Brand Development Manager.

For the past nine years, McGovern has worked in sales and marketing for consumer products (PowerBar, The Kellogg’s Company, Kraft Foods), online media agencies, and most recently sales for Adventure 16.

For over 27 years, Overland Equipment has designed, developed and manufactured bags with the consistent intent of providing well-organized solutions for active, everyday use. It all started in a Chico, California garage with some cloth, a pair of scissors and a passion for making useful, durable bags. Today, we’re still passionate about creating unique, innovative products. We’ve designed the Overland Equipment line with authentic materials, heavy-duty construction and organization for your everyday essentials. We’ve updated our brand identity, but our bags are still â€“ and always will be â€“ made with the same thoughtfulness, simplicity and natural ruggedness of our Chico roots.
