Allison “Allie” DurrDesign

    Meet Allie Durr.

    Allie recently joined the Diamond Brand Gear team full-time as a Design Engineer after serving as a Design Intern last summer. Prior to moving to the Carolina Mountains, she completed her Textile Engineering degree at NC State and spent a month traveling around Europe. She uses her background in fabric development and knowledge of outdoor gear to develop the latest and greatest products to add to the DBG collection. She enjoys spending her free time hiking and kayaking with her boyfriend and two dogs.

    Why are you here, what are you doing here anyway?

    My passion for the outdoors and adventure led me to Diamond Brand. After spending 2 months hiking the Appalachian Trail, I realized the importance of having quality gear made to last. Diamond Brand Gear has always prided itself on making quality products in the USA, and I’m proud to be a small part of that.

    “Never Have I ever……”

    Never have I ever…been to Africa, but I hope to go one day and hike Mount Kilimanjaro.

    “Oh yes I have….”

    Oh yes I have…seen a natural sea arch in Portugal, hiked 750 miles of the AT from Georgia to southern Virginia, swam in the Cote d’Azur, and slept under the stars in Haiti.
