About Us

Montie Gear is a part of Montie Design.  Montie Design is a NC-based design firm that provides product design and development services to a variety of industries.  We also happen to enjoy spending time outdoors and the shooting sports.  The founder of Montie Design, Montie Roland, has a background in competitive shooting.  In 2008, we decided to design our own line of products.  This gave us the opportunity to do something that was uniquely Montie Design.  This led to the X-Rest shooting rest and then the AR-Rest. 

Since then, our product line continues to grow thanks to the support of the shooting and outdoor sports community.  That support comes in many forms, from sales of our equipment, articles written by reviewers, vendors providing quality components and services, and feedback from the community.  All of those are critical elements that allow us to provide relevant, high-quality products that meet your needs in an exceptional way. 

Montie Gear is the product of our love for great design and our love for the great outdoors.  Our goal is to provide easy-to-use, superior-quality outdoor and shooting gear, manufactured in the U.S.A. whenever possible.  We test many of our products at Troublesome Gap in Western North Carolina.  Our motto is "Heirloom Quality, Troublesome Gap Tough."
