“My bicycle trip is a symbol for responsible transportation. I frequently speak to people curious about my trip and they are stunned to hear how far I have traveled on my bike. My transcontinental journey furthers the idea of how realistic a bicycle can be as a mode of travel”

OSS_LogoO.S.S. is privileged to have Devin use our first generation F2 tent system. Devin has been camping and living in our tent for over a year while on his journey. Devin’s blunt critique and honest feedback on things to improve has been invaluable to our evolution. Every weakness our product had was exposed and from that came opportunity to learn, to grow, to work harder, to improve and be better than ever before. Our passion is to make quality outdoor gear that inspires you. We are proud to be offering our 3rd generation tent and sleeping bag systems coming soon. Our thanks to Devin Western for the inspiration he provided us and to so many others. Above are some pictures from his epic journey.
