Project Description


We were born in New Zealand – a breathtaking country where isolation breeds innovation and the hunger to explore.

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

We act with people and the planet in mind – from the creative minds of our designers, to the careful hands of our suppliers, to the backs of our customers all around the world.

One of our sustainability goals is to use 100% sustainable cotton by 2020. We are on track to achieving this goal in 2017 increasing our uptake to 75%.
