We get it. Performance isn’t always the main reason you love an item. Sometimes it's the story behind the gear that matters. And many of our favorite outdoor tools stand out because they're handmade.

Believe it or not, sites like Etsy aren't just repositories for jewelry that looks like it’s meant to be worn on Game of Thrones. They're filled with innovate, useful, and thoughtfully designed outdoor products crafted in small batches in garages and home workshops.
