  • Wesley Bryden

    Welcome to Curated! Think of me as your personal gear concierge!

    Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, my Dad has been an independent gear rep for over forty years so growing up we always had a garage full of options to test and explore with. Since then I have had my own adventures in almost every state and multiple countries world wide. I currently live on a large sail boat in Ballard, WA and spend as much time as possible exploring the great outdoors and challenging myself with new personal goals, summits and horizons. I recently learned how to Kite Surf in Zanzibar and am looking forward to becoming more proficient at ski touring next winter!

    I am most passionate about skiing, backpacking, mountaineering, kayaking, and sailing. I enjoy leading trips and inspiring new adventures. Tell me about your next adventure!

    Found What I Needed
    I am going on a trip in the late fall. I told him my experience level and my specific needs. He was more than happy to help find what was best for me. He provided details on why he picked each options and was a great source of knowledge for other questions I had.

    Helpful recommendations and very personable!!
    I had spent about two hours researching shoes and jackets for winter hiking. While I've always had an interest, my gear was not always great. I finally had means to purchase something and Wesley did a fantastic job narrowing down options for me. The recommendations were so helpful. When I couldn't decide between two jackets, he even talked through the features with me, explaining in detail what it meant. I appreciate the thoughtfulness and patience he showed. I look forward to trying everything on as well. I certainly intend to ask for his recommendations again.

    Great recommendation & experience with Wesley
    Wesley was very helpful in understanding what I was looking for and narrowing down my search to a few select options that provided me with the ability to make an informed decision. The research would have taken me several hours and I likely would have overlooked a few options. I had a great experience and will definitely be back for my next gear purchase.
