RAGGEDedge Gear is just a two woman mother/daughter team in the US that specializes in taking sailcloth material and turning it into a variety of different gear from wallets to gym bags. Sailcloth is the same material used to make sails for sailboats including racing yachts (such as the America’s Cup boats) and windsurfing sails. I know what you’re thinking, isn’t sailcloth made from big white sheets? That was the past, they now use a variety of different fibers like carbon fiber, Aramid, Kevlar and Pentex. What makes these materials so great? They are all extremely strong, resistant to stretching, and lightweight. The fibers are then woven together in different patterns and thicknesses and encased in layers of flexible resin. Once that is done, they become waterproof, smell proof, and very easy to clean.
When we first came across the product line from RAGGEDedge we were very impressed with not only the craftsmanship but also the creativeness and uniqueness behind the product. These are just something you won’t find anywhere else in the world. The use of material makes the products last a long time, they can be cleaned in the dishwasher/washing machine, and they just look really really cool.
While RAGGEDedge makes a variety of gear using a variety of different materials and colors, we don’t currently carry the full lineup, but instead, some of the stuff that’s more popular and of course uses carbon fiber. In this post, we’re going to do a little overview of each product that we carry at this time. Keep in mind that RAGGEDedge is continually updating their products, so you’ll find changes from time to time, this article is only based on what’s currently available. You can always see the full list of RAGGEDedge products we sell here.
The wallets use triple step zig zag stitching, heavyweight threads, and carbon fiber sailcloth material. The wallets are extremely durable as they will not absorb any water, smells or dirt.
