These are some of the clothing brands we carry and their stories which hopefully will explain why we have handed picked these brands to outfit your next adventure whether it’s to the store or some far off place.
Our focus is on the product and only the product, which opposes the logo-driven norm. At KÜHL®, we set out to demonstrate how original ideas lead to creating the best outdoor lifestyle clothing.
When you reach into your closet, there should be something there that reflects who you are, how you feel, and what you value most. There should be something that you can put on in the morning and confidently wear all day long. Something you can throw in your bag and know will work for whatever your journey brings.
“IT’S PERFECT, NOW MAKE IT BETTER.”
This is the directive given by our very own tough mother, Chairman Gert Boyle. It’s the reason we’re constantly testing our products against every type of terrible, no good, day-ruining condition the skies of the mighty Pacific Northwest can dish out. Sure, it makes life hell for us, but it means great gear for you. So when she finally does use her famous stamp of approval, you know you’re duly equipped to stay outside long after the featherweights have retreated indoors.
tentree was founded on the premise that every consumer wants to know that they are contributing to the wellbeing of our planet.
Our aim is to educate every tentree consumer on the incredible impact they can have. At present, the world’s forests are rapidly depleting, leading to widespread famine and poverty. Now more than ever, we need to take action to combat this ever-growing problem. What has occurred in the past cannot be changed, but this does not mean we don’t have the ability to positively affect what will happen in the future.
Life is Good
We see it when we believe it. Each one of us has a choice: to focus our energy on obstacles or opportunities. To fixate on our problems, or focus on solutions. We can harp on what’s wrong with the world (see most news media), or we can cultivate what’s right with the world. What we focus on grows.
That’s why the Life is Good community shares one simple, unifying mission: to spread the power of optimism.
At Outdoor Research®, we built a company from a feeling: the urge to get out. It’s what drives us. We love coming to work every day and inventing ever better solutions to what nature throws our way. But we’re more than just the gear we build. We’re part of a community of friends whose lives are connected by our common need to be outside. Our tribe is devoted to exploring our outdoor passions and challenging ourselves in the mountains, water and deserts of the planet we love so much.
Like the best moments in life, clothing should be intuitive, natural and make you feel better. So why do we need to wrap ourselves in chemically-treated plastic to workout, run, or enjoy being outside?
Sherpa Adventure Gear
The Sherpa people hail from the high valleys of the Himalayas, but the traits Sherpas are found far beyond the borders of Nepal. As Sherpas:
We believe in keeping a joyful heart. We strive to be as warm, welcoming and gracious to strangers as we are to our friends.
We believe that loyalty and integrity say much more about a person than his pocketbook.
We believe in a strong sense of community, whether we are guiding a team up a mountain, or helping our neighbors at home.
We believe in leaving the earth a better place than when we arrived.
We believe in passing down the wisdom and traditions of our elders.
We believe it is possible to be humble and reserved, while still displaying confidence and skill.
We believe our quiet strength and determined resilience will take us far beyond the summit.
Regardless of where you call home, we hope you too are proud to join us in saying, “We Are Sherpa.”
