What happens when you combine a Mechanical/Aerospace Engineer, an Adventure Guide, and a mutual love for the outdoors? Wazoo Survival Gear!
They design, create, and field test products engineered to save lives. The adventurer, Dustin Hogard, and the engineer, Nick Blackman, crossed paths for the first time in 2012 near Houston, Texas over a few pints of craft brew. That meeting was the beginning of a very unlikely partnership that has now spawned an entire new industry of wearable gear.
With the office walls covered in working design concepts and existing products such as a business card that can act as a fire starter, a belt with a hidden compartment, a hat with hidden pockets, or a beer sleeve with survival tips, Wazoo continues to strive to make survival sexy and emphasis the “fun” in functional.
