“I founded Uphill Designs after hiking the 2665-mile Pacific Crest Trail in 2013. I sewed my own backpack and tent to use for the adventure and while hiking, a larger vision emerged to build a company centered on rugged, handmade gear.”

Dan Sedlacek, Founder

Today, our small impassioned team designs and handcrafts leather and canvas goods in the heart of Seattle. We combine the rustic aesthetic of the trail with elements of modern design to create unique lifestyle and adventure goods built to last.
