Our products are made of recycled materials (firehose, fabrics & more), and most of our offerings are customizable because one size doesn’t fit all. Feel free to contact us with any ideas or questions. We would love to create your next outdoor gear purchase that best suits you.

About the Founders
The Thomas family, a tight-knit team of 6, started Hikes and Hose during the COVID-19 pandemic. Looking for safe things to do, they started hiking more and more, but there was a problem. Hiking gear, and outdoor gear in general, was too expensive and often made with cheap material. So, they decided to make their own. This idea was paired with a passion for the environment and the need to reduce waste.


Hikes and Hose works with a local firehose manufacturer right here in Erie, Pennsylvania to reduce waste and create something new for anyone to enjoy. Utilizing the hose that is tossed due to flaw and human error, the Thomas family creates many unique and bright products that has now become their Recycled Firehose Collection.
