Get To Know Us

We design, we test, we adapt, right here in New Zealand.

We were born in New Zealand – where nature breeds innovation and the hunger to explore.


Explore 30 Years of Adventure

For 30 years, we have designed our gear to take on the rugged landscapes of our homeland and to outfit the adventurous spirit of our people.

With Kiwi ingenuity and an open mind, we continuously adapt our gear to endure different weather conditions, diverse terrains, and different needs.

We act with people and the planet in mind. Sustainability lies at the heart of what we do, from the materials we use to the people who help us create our products. You can find out more about our sustainability practices through the Our Footprint page
