About us

How we started

The name

Kitanica is a word derived from "chitin" (pronounced Kǝi•tin), a key structural component of
insect exoskeletons. Due to the overbuilt nature of our designs, we decided it best described
our mission to make the most functional and durable gear possible.

The company

Made in the U.S.A.

Kitanica proudly makes the majority of its products in the United States using domestically produced materials. Much of the production is done in-house in Northern California at our Oakland headquarters.
