The adventure began in a garage in Ocean Beach in 2012 when Tyler Axtell began to design and make products one at a time. His perspective on design is all self taught. The products that he made were things that he did not see on the market, but wanted for himself.
Bradley Mountain is based in San Diego, CA. We are currently a team of 4. Each of us are craftsmen and love what we do. While we are known for our bag collection, we are a lifestyle brand. We make things like the Utility Roll and the Adventure Log to help people in practical ways have a simple set of tools to tackle their dreams and goals. All of our products are made in the US. We source natural materials and work hard to create durable goods that could even outlast you!
Bradley Mountain is a fictitious place where we can all cast our dreams. It helps us to have a physical location to get our dreams moving. Think about that last trip you took. It probably started coming together when you picked a destination, picked dates, and then filled in the gaps. We want to provide a platform for inspiration like that. There is so much going on in our day to day, and sometimes our dreams fall through the cracks. We are here to draw a line in the sand and say “It’s time!”
We want to bring you the best gear (in function, durability, and aesthetic) for your adventures. The goal with Bradley Mountain is to inspire a fresh perspective on modern adventure, beyond just traveling and camping, and into our daily lives. We believe that the world is beautiful everywhere each of us are placed and it just takes a bit of encouragement to see it that way. We hope that our hard work brings you that fresh perspective.
