Uphill Designs

“Nature first.”

Meet, Dan Sedlacek, who founded Uphill Designs after a 2665 mile thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2013. Using a backpack and tent he had sewn himself, a vision emerged to build a company centered on community, adventure, and gear. Today, a small, passionate team designs and handcrafts leather and canvas goods in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA. Combining the rustic aesthetic of the trail with elements of modern design, Uphill creates unique lifestyle and adventure goods built to last.
