Roraima Gear makes dog gear made for the outdoors - whether that be the city or backcountry. But our story is more than just dog gear for the outdoors - we care deeply about each step in the production process and it's relationship to both the environment, the maker, and the user.
It means that our gear is made very well, with purpose in mind throughout the entire production process. Our gear is made to last, and keeping our gear from being worn out means one less piece out of the landfill.
Each sale includes a donation to rural rescue. We've partnered with Tuba City Humane Society for our donation. They work to spay, neuter, and heart worm treat animals while also working within their community to change the culture of stray animals on the reservation.

THE WOMAN BEHIND THE FLEECE
I'm Scarlet Aguilar-Martínez, designer, and seamtress based out of Norfolk, Virginia.
Roraima Gear is inspired by the high quality garment construction techniques and materials one sees in human gear, but aimed for our dogs. Roraima Gear was born after I began hiking in my late twenties and found it hard to find gear that fit my smaller barrel shaped pug mix, Nacho. I have a family background in garment construction and decided to begin making gear for Nacho, and it eventually expanded to other dogs.

THE DOG BEHIND THE BRAND
NACHO - part beagle, part pug, 100% tweedle dingus
Nacho is the main driving force for making dog gear. As I began hiking I knew that I wouldn't do a hike if my little dude couldn't go. He loves being on a hike but tends to follow his nose too well, so he stays strictly on leash. He's 19lbs of fearless hiking adventure.
