The harsh beauty of the Irish Atlantic coast breeds a special kind of folk. A community of individuals exploring the high roads and byroads, the muddy fields and bogs, in search of elusive perfection. The Atlantic Equipment (AE) project, founded by Ashleigh Smith, is about designing and building long-lasting, quality equipment that will serve this community of adventurers and explorers. AE packs are designed with durability and function as primary requirements, in order to support experience and adventure amongst your wilderness.

The project is about the coastal communities of the West of Ireland, where a new, quality manufacture base can bring prosperity and further potential. AE build quality packs, by hand, in their workshop in the West of Ireland. In prioritizing local resources and keeping supply chains as small as possible, their ambition is to maintain and grow a sustainable business ethos - investing in people with skills, keeping production small, and ensuring attention to detail and craftsmanship.
