Kitanica is a family-owned and operated business known for producing functional and durable gear. The company was founded in Brooklyn, NY, in 1995 and later moved to San Francisco.

Kitanica is renowned for their overbuilt designs. They produce some of their products in the USA using domestically sourced materials, and many of those products are also Berry Compliant. Most of the made in the USA products we’ve seen are in their clothing section. Stay away from their bags for the most part – a lot of them are made in Vietnam.

Overall, Kitanica is pretty reliable and trustworthy. Just make sure to select their made in the USA products on their website – they are clearly labeled.
