My name is Lucy Quinton, based in the south of England. I’ve been an avid wild camper and hiker for years, using either bivvy, tent or hammock, and usually as lightweight as I can. I am also a person who likes to make things, and being particular about my kit, I began to look for options on how I could achieve my ideas. Most of the options on the market were not what I wanted in terms of quality of manufacture, weight or adaptability, so I set about designing, developing, researching, prototyping and using my own creations. From that to here and now!
Multi use and adaptability is key for me when designing, as well as quality of materials and construction. I don't over-engineer, but I absolutely do engineer to the worst case scenario. Having kit fail while out on the fells in the winter can be disastrous, and I will not let that happen to anything with my name on.
I have made many roll top bags, drawstring bags, delta peg bags, sleeping bag covers, rucksack covers, bivvy bags, tarps and tarp sails, water carriers and insulated items. I have also teamed up with the legendary Dorothy at Delta Ground Anchors to provide them with bags for their epic pegs that every serious camper should own.
My micro business started on Facebook and grew to where I am now. I still maintain my Facebook page for the sense of community it brings and ease of messaging, but I can also be reached by email.
I buy specialist fabrics direct from manufacturers and also purchase cut offs produced from production runs by premium tent manufacturers. My designs use what I have available to minimise waste.
Using material that would otherwise go to landfill is important for me personally, and I am sure many others that camp. Wild campers adhere to the #leavenotrace principles about minimising our impact on the world.

I really enjoy working with people to help them achieve their ideas. I have the skills and experience to turn your ideas into your own real world bespoke kit, and I know what you need because I've been in your shoes. My prices are really reasonable too. So, message me if there's something special you need and we can work out the details!

So far I have bought backpack covers, roll top bags of all sizes (some custom made sizes), stuff sacks & been using the new insulated bag for my electrics (will also use for keeping food warm & to stop my gas freezing). All items have been outstanding quality. Second to none. Will never buy anywhere else now.
Lucy carried out a modification on a hammock quilt for me. She listened to my ideas and then gave suggestions for the best solution. Couldn’t be happier with the result and the professional service throughout.

Brilliant workmanship, good value and very fast turnaround. All with an amazing personal and friendly touch. Love my footprint and will definitely be ordering more things, and will probably be buggin you with something quite specific soon too.

I had a footprint made for my Scarp 2, The manufacturers one only covers the sleeping area, Lucy produced one which covers both vestibules as well, the material and stitching are excellent. Brilliant communication throughout, 9 days from first getting in touch to the footprint landing on my doorstep. If you are looking for bespoke wild camping gear this is the company to go to.

Wow amazing service, awesome products. Ordered my new QuintCraft - Handmade Wild Camping Kit iPad pouch and electrics bag on evening of 28 July, arrived today 31 July! Made to measure iPad pouch too.
Just need for my self isolation to end then I get back out in the fells. Oh, and cold weather and rain to test out the new pouch/bag! can't recommend Quintcraft enough - already have a rain cover, delta tent pegs bag, and an insulated bag, Need to save up for a rain kilt now.

Great quality and service
I've just had a custom footprint made for my new Kuiu Storm Star tent and I am really happy with it. the quality is fantastic and Lucy was incredibly helpful and easy to deal with. I will definitely be recommending Quintcraft to my friends and would certainly use them again in the future 🙂

I have known via Facebook groups Lucy for over a year now, I had seen some of her amazing designs and projects. A few months back I had a custom item I wanted making, I spent a little time talking it over with her. She then created a prototype!!! Yep a prototype and sent me photos. I gave the go ahead and a week later it dropped through my mail box. I have brought a free more things from Lucy now and she always goes above and beyond. Constant updates, shipping info and estimated delivery dates that she has beaten each and every time. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone and everyone
Well made and designed products. Just taken delivery of 2 of the insulated roll top bags an excellent idea and manufactured to a high standard.

just received my Roll top bags, absolutely flawless quality, excellent stitching, quality components and arrived quickly.
customer service superb
I had an Abisko Lite 1 footprint made. Lucy sent some samples of materials. Once I had decided then Lucy set to and made the footprint. It was delivered within a week. Excellent quality with lovely attention to detail including toggles to attach to tent. Having set up the tent with the new footprint it fitted exactly. Thankyou Lucy !
