About Us

We’re a small group of friends and family here at Rugged Care, though our passion of the outdoors and our adventures together is what really bonds us.

We come together under Rugged Care to merge a part of our expertise with our passion. The opportunity to build this business is a blessing, and we believe that if pursued in good spirit, will improve the well-being of those who surround us.

Our medical expertise and guidance comes from Dr. Kyle Yebernetsky, our emergency medical physician. He hails from Western Pennsylvania and currently practices emergency medicine nearby. He helps ensure that the medical information and the products themselves serve your needs. As a team, we ensure that the products and information are applied appropriately to those who share in the passion of the outdoors. We want to provide great value not only by building high-quality products, but by giving you the information and resources to make you more aware of what these products are used for, how they might be used, and when they might be used. This is our ultimate business goal.     

We hope that these products and information will never be needed, and that if they are, they will serve your needs so that you can continue in this grand adventure we call Life. This is our ultimate goal.

On behalf of the team at Rugged Care:

Thank you for reading and for your support.

“'But you were always a good man of business, Jacob,' faltered Scrooge, who now began to apply this to himself. `Business!' cried the Ghost, wringing its hands again. `Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!'” – Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
