About us

Mandarin Gear was founded in 2014 by Manuel Becvar. Manuel has a 17 year-long history and background in the consumer products sector, having worked for large retailers in Europe and the US.  Manuel has lived for over 12 years in Hong Kong, China giving him an extensive knowledge in the manufacturing industry.

Outside of work you will find Manuel spending lots of time exercising and hiking the mountains of Hong Kong. That's where the idea of Mandarin-Gear came from. With Manuel's passion for coffee and hiking he was frustrated with what the market has the offer. Our goal is to create affordable, unique and high-quality products with a unique twist. We aim to be a provider of lightweight and durable outdoor products as well as unique coffee products with a twist. We also exhibit our products and brand labels at major exhibitions in Asia. 

All our products are certified and tested by third-party laboratories. Whether it's a strength test for textile or a food grade test for plastic materials - we make no compromise ever. We stand for high quality products at a minimum price. 

Besides Mandarin-Gear, Manuel founded and runs ImportDojo, a website dedicated to helping people mastering the import/export industry. Manuel has also written 4 books on the subject that are available on Amazon. Due to his experience Manuel has been invited to speak at eCommerce and import from China related conferences around the world.
