About us

We're a small team based in the Bay Area and we're passionate about minimalist gear, traveling and creating great products.

"We believe by simplifying the gears you use every day, you can then focus on the important things in life."

Our mission is to create functional minimalist products for your everyday lifestyle needs. In the process of designing products, we take deep consideration on how they should be practical, easy to use without unnecessary distractions.

Our Story

Super Catalyst Lab began as a Kickstarter project in 2020. For the longest time, we struggled to find EDC gears with the right balance between functionality & simplicity. It's either too much functionality with an overwhelming number of pockets, or “less is more” has gone to the point of having barely anything. This inspired us to set out on a journey to create the perfect functional minimalist gear. With the support of Kickstarter backers we’re able to achieve our mission one step at a time.

Impact on Environment

We strive to reduce our carbon footprint, our product design process aims for efficiency with little waste as possible. While working with ethical suppliers and manufacturers to minimize our carbon footprint.
