In chemistry and atomic physics, the 'outer shell' is an orbit around an atom's nucleus. The electrons in this shell determine how the atom behaves in chemical reactions and, as a result, represents the unity of all objects and events. We encourage users to explore the environment that they are, not just deeply connected to, but wholly a part of. The 'Outer Shell Adventure' embodies our quest towards spiritual harmony with ourselves, nature and other travelers. We are inspired by cycling and make bags for traveling. Whether its for one hour or one year, the spontaneity of a plan can be necessary and/or rewarding. That's why many of the bags can expand to higher volumes. Outer Shell focuses on the highest quality overlanding gear with function forward design, backcountry security and minimalist style. When possible, the gear uses fewer seams, avoids zippered main closures, and implements weatherproof construction. When you only have the few things you can bring on a trip, they should be simple and reliable companions. We stand against disposable culture and make durable gear with a warranty. As a small operation, we have a complete perspective from designing to testing to manufacturing. Each phase is given the same meticulous attention to detail. All products, except for the Dry Bags, are made in San Francisco, CA.



If you are unsatisfied with a product purchased directly from Outer Shell at the time you receive it, you may return it, unused, for a refund of your purchase price, within 15 days. Items returned outside of this time frame must still be unused and will also incur a 20% restocking fee. Just include your order number and send it back to the return address.


Any item that suffers from manufacturing defects in workmanship and materials may be returned for repair or replacement as needed, free of charge. Outer Shell will determine whether or not your product is covered by this warranty. Damage due to wear and tear, accident, improper use, or the natural breakdown of materials over extended time is not covered. However, non-warranty repairs are gladly accepted and priced accordingly.
