What we believe

Great gear makes for great adventures, and great gear should be easy to use, lightweight, and accessible to all

We design our products by answering two simple questions:

  1. What matters most to the hikers, campers, and backpackers who will use this product? and

  2. How can we build a product to meet these needs in the simplest, easiest to use, and most reliable way possible?

We build our products from the ground up to provide everything you need and the conveniences you want in the lightest, most thoughtfully integrated way possible

Who we are

Coastal Range Equipment has been a long time project of John Peretti. An engineer, designer, and lifelong enjoyer of the outdoors, he is passionate about making great gear that makes the outdoors easier and more enjoyable. He believes the tastiest meals are eaten outside, hunger makes the best sauce, and there's never a bad day on the trail.

When not designing innovative outdoor products, he loves to hike the trails up and down California's Coast Range with his wife, daughters, and their dog Elvis.


The Coast Range

California's Coast Range is full of variety: The open expanses of the Marin Headlands, under the canopy of towering redwoods in the Santa Cruz Mountains, or nestled in the rugged solitude of the Lost Coast, the Coast Range inspires us through the awe of nature and the joy of being outside.
