Meet Mike

Outdoor Element Founder, Michael Mojica

Mike Mojica, one of the founders of OE, is a mechanical engineer who spent most of his time in aerospace and military vehicle mods. Mojica loved what he was doing, but with a passion for outdoors and design the entrepreneur in him broke free as he decided to leave his 8-5 in late 2017.

With a leap of faith and the burning American Dream in his soul, he set out determined to deliver unique, novel gear that enhances every outdoor adventure.

Meet Joe

Outdoor Element co-founder, Joe Brown

Joe Brown joined Mojica as a partner in 2015. Joe also has a deep love of the outdoors. At OE, he  oversees supply chain and operations. 

Joe has helped take the dream and make it a reality in growing Outdoor Element.

OE Gear

You may find a common theme with much of our gear. As a proud part of the Pueblo Nation, Laguna Tribe, Mike's native American name is “Bodaway” which means “Fire Maker.”

Making a fire can be the difference between life and death. When considering the means to start a fire, two is one and one is none. Meaning, we should always carry least two ways to create fire so if one should fail, there is still a solution available.

Our hope is that you become familiar with our gear, and also become proficient using it so should you find yourself in a pickle, you will be confident with your skills and the gear in your pack. So get outdoors and explore with confidence with gear by Outdoor Element!

Thank you for supporting small business. Now go get outdoors and explore with confidence!

Outdoor Element founder, Michael Mojica loves to Explore with Confidence
