Picture Organic ClothingThe first one is coming from marketing, after graduating from a business school, he became upset being in Paris and dreaming about awesome powder sessions. The second one was working as an architect within a architect family company, which is the “traditional life” for an architect’s son, but not the life he dreamed about, being a “bio a eco fan.” The third one just graduated high school when he decided to join this adventure with his two friends onto this crazy project instead of going to university, as he was really “different.”
ThermarestFor over 40 years Therm-a-Rest has pursued a single mission to provide the best nights under the stars. No engineer can sit alone and proclaim a design innovative. True innovation is defined by consensus, in the field, by thousands—if not millions—of customers. Our focus on delivering that level of performance has allowed a number of our products to attain such a level of recognition over the last 35 years. Driven by the need to get a better night’s sleep outdoors, founders of Cascade Designs invent the revolutionary self-inflating Therm-a-Rest® mattress. The lightweight, portable mattress allows mountain climbers and outdoor enthusiasts to sleep better in warmth and comfort.
POC SportsBuilt on a strong mission; to do everything we can to possibly save lives and to reduce consequences of accidents, for gravity sports athletes, by developing and renewing what personal protection is all about. POC has in many ways already set a new standard when it comes to technical solutions, construction, material combinations and engineering, with patented solutions, to increase the degree of protection. POC works in a cross scientific way, from the office at Nacka gatan 4, in Stockholm. The organization involves competences from different fields, such as engineers, material specialists, industrial and graphic designers, neurologists and back specialists. Stockholm is an important centre for some of Europe’s leading research and development experts in the areas of safety, medicine, health care, advanced product development and testing. All our products have been tested by top world gravity sport athletes and then further refined to perfection. Our athlete friends love to go flat out but without suffering cuts, bruises and headaches, or in the worst cases, risking back or brain damage as a result of crashes that sadly happens to even the best athletes. The end result is a line of lightweight, high performance gear that offers the ultimate protection against injury thanks to superior impact absorption and penetration resistance. When developing a product at POC, we do it in the spirit of doing the best. We never compromise in choosing materials or construction, and we never compromise safety, quality or performance.
KastleKÄSTLE is an Austrian company based in the heart of the Alps. We are a small tribe of life-long skiers with extensive experience in the ski manufacturing industry. We came together because we share a passion for skiing and a desire to build the world’s best ski systems. Quality is our most important priority. Quality has two meanings to us: first, functional and performance-oriented product development; second, respectful and sustainable relationships with our partners and the mountains. Our products are uncompromisingly built to the highest standards. We strip away the gimmicks and gizmos that plague many skis and focus on functional technology. The result: advanced and elegant ski designs that deliver uncompromising performance.
TevaIt's been 25 years since we took our first step into the Grand Canyon, and not a moment has gone by that Teva® (that's "teh'-vah," not "tee-vah") hasn't been hard at work developing products that enable and encourage your adventure. Of course, given our heritage, we have an obsession with water, and our passion lies in identifying and enhancing the areas in which water effects an adventure. To us, water presents a paradox. It is the source of a year-round playground, but it simultaneously poses a year-round problem. Anyone who has ever slipped on a patch of ice or been forced to deal with soaking wet socks can attest to this duality.

Winston Fly RodsA Winston is not just a fly rod. It is a commitment to doing something the right way. Without compromise. Overall, we believe the true measure of a rod is not the ultimate distance it can cast, but how well it performs at the range of distances it was intended to cast. And most important, how well it “fishes.” Every rod we make reflects this belief. Our Boron IIx rods are the first and only rods with not only the power to cast 100 feet of line, but also the finesse to make delicate presentations at 15 to 60 feet, where the vast majority of trout fishing occurs.
IdylwildeIdylwilde was founded in 1996 by Zach Mertens as an excuse to fish more and get paid for it, which of course, backfired. Now he just works 6,000 hours a week, unless he's product testing. Being a quick study, it took Zach exactly three days to figure out a company is really about its customer, so this is the last time you'll hear any of that we're-so-awesome, company-centric, rah-rah dreck from us and where we turn this whole thing back on the folks who really matter: You. As a fly fisher, what do you need from a fly pattern? As a dealer, how can we help grow your business? Seriously. We'd love to hear how we can make your fishing or business better, so how about sending us an email and helping a bunch of equally obsessed fly fishers out?
Backcountry Access is a privately held company founded in 1994 by Bruce (“Bruno”) McGowan and Bruce (“Edge”) Edgerly. We currently have about 45 employees, not to mention our reps and distributors. Our headquarters is at Valmont and Foothills, in Boulder, Colorado, at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Like many innovative companies, we have humble beginnings (Bruno’s garage). At BCA, our mission is to save lives, not just pump products. As a leader in our industry, we need to be responsible about sending people into the backcountry. They need to be equipped not just with products, but with education. That’s why we’ve invested so much in research and education.
Lucylucy Activewear® was founded in 1999 in Portland, Oregon by a group of like-minded women who felt that workout wear should not only support your athletic pursuits, but should be stylish and flattering, too. All of our styles are designed and developed by women who do the activities we design for: yoga, running, training, exploring the outdoors, and traveling to your favorite destination. And that’s just scratching the surface: on our team we also have marathoners, triathletes, swimmers, tennis players, golfers, rock climbers, dancers, weight lifters, Pilates enthusiasts and even martial arts experts. We’re a passionate group, and our mission is to make clothes that fit and flatter you, your life, and your passion.

LeathermanOur core values aren't something we hang on the wall and only point to when we have "visitors." They weren't created in a board room to make the shareholders feel better. Leatherman's core values were created for, by, and with our employees and users who are the heart and soul of everything we do. They embody our spirit here whether you're on the manufacturing floor, or in the finance department, and from our newest employee to our oldest, Tim Leatherman himself.
ArborwearWe started as arborists — folks that take care of trees. Back then, there were two types of pants for tree work: canvas work pants or rock climbing pants. Canvas pants were too stiff, never fit very well and restricted our movement. Rock climbing pants on the other hand, allowed free movement, but sure didn't hold up well to tree work… Not to mention they cost an arm and a leg. Our solution was to marry the two and make a comfortable canvas work pant that you could actually move in. A pant that fit well, held up on the job, and cost less than a case of bar oil. After many prototypes and on-the-job testing, we finally made some things we liked. Truth is, we found other folks liked them too — not just arborists. The features that make our clothes great for tree work are the same for any demanding work environment or lifestyle. We're not about bells and whistles… just the necessities that work. Making honest, hardworking clothing remains our passion. Each of our innovative, free-moving designs are made using heavy-duty fabrics. We don't test our clothes in some fancy lab…. But personally from the tops of trees to dragging brush on the ground. The result is something you can trust day in and day out. Put yours to the test the same way we do — one leg at a time.

Today, we put the same thought into every detail for garments that will enhance any adventure. In 25 years we have gone farther than we ever thought possible while remaining true to our original mission.
