CroakiesIn 1977 a local ski patrolman from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming, came up with an idea for an eyewear retainer that would grip his shades through all kinds of alpine adventures. Using an old wetsuit, some sharp scissors, and good old American ingenuity, he made the first pair of eyewear retainers. The ingenious device was based on the design of a Chinese finger trap and it quickly became a hit with all of the patrollers! Demand picked up quickly for the patrolman's invention which was nameless at first. Back in the seventies, the Jackson Hole ski patrol used the nickname "croakies" when they couldn't think of a word (think "thing- amajig"), but it finally stuck on the first neoprene eyewear retainer ever invented. Croakies headquarters are still in Jackson Hole, Wyoming with our production in Bozeman, Montana. Our inspiration remains the same - to create eyewear retainers and accessories that provide comfort, style, durability, and functionality to active people of all ages. With the addition of men's and women's belts into Croakies accessory line-up, Croakies now offers something for everyone. Croakies products are sold by retailers throughout the United States and in over 30 countries around the world. They've even been used OUT of this world – Croakies became standard issue on the Space Shuttle in 1990.
ColemanW.C. Coleman could see the light for the darkness. The young salesman was taking a stroll after a hard day’s work selling typewriters, and spotted a new type of lamplight in a drugstore window in Brockton, Alabama. This new light burned with a strong, steady white flame and was fueled by gasoline. The standard lamp of the era burned kerosene and produced a smoky, flickering, yellowish light. W.C. was stricken with very poor eyesight, and was very interested in this new, steady white light that enabled him to read even the smallest print in books and on medicine bottles. Coleman saw potential in the new light, and through his vision a new company was born that would put America’s farms and ranches in a new light, and would eventually make his name synonymous with outdoor fun.

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?

ZeissThe workshop for precision mechanics and optics opened by Carl Zeiss in Jena in 1846 already enjoyed a sustained period of prosperity during its early years. On the basis of Ernst Abbe’s outstanding scientific achievements, a global player in the field of optics gradually evolved. This period of success continued for a century. The enforced partition of Germany as a result of World War II led to two Zeiss companies, one in the West and one in the East. With the political changes taking place in the former East Germany in 1989/90, the two competitors reunited to form a single company in 1990. Reunited, Carl Zeiss became stronger than ever before in its eventful history. Today, the company looks to the future with optimism and anticipation.

KaenonDerived from a Polynesian word meaning free, Kaenon(pronounced: KAY-nun) was founded in 2001 by two brothers who wanted to create a better sunglass. Unsatisfied with the sunglasses that were available on the market, they developed a proprietary polarized lens and wrapped it in unique frame styles and color treatments to match their active lifestyles. The sunglasses Kaenon created were quickly adopted by world-class athletes ranging from sailing to golf, from baseball to fishing. However, unlike other sport sunglass brands available at the time, athletes did not remove their sunglasses as they left the field. They discovered that, for the first time, their “lifestyle” sunglass performed just as well as their previously worn “sport performance” sunglass, both on and off the field of play. With roots deep in the world of competitive sailing, we continue to expand the Kaenon ethos into nearly every active sport and lifestyle movement, providing the perfect blend of comfort, protection, style and clarity to those who seek to live their lives free of compromise.

WoolrichWoolrich has been synonymous with quality outdoor clothing for over 180 years. The company got its start in 1830 when John Rich, an immigrant from England, built his first woolen mill in Plum Run, Pennsylvania. Rich would visit the lumber camps that dotted the area and sell his woolen fabric, coverlets, and yarn from a mule cart. Legend has it that Woolrich was the first company to use a zipper in men's trousers. Eventually, the introduction of new high-tech materials allowed Woolrich to enhance the performance of its outdoor wear, meeting the needs of a new generation of enthusiasts. Traditional fabrics like wool and cotton teamed up with man-made fibers to create clothing that our customers could rely on for everything from a backpacking trip to a leisurely stroll.
KuhlKühl® began as Alfwear in 1983 with the Alf hat, a Peruvian-inspired design that many ski bums equipped themselves with in the mid-80s. Updating it with polar fleece, John “Alf” Engwall designed the pattern for the hat that would become the choice for serious Rocky Mountain powder skiers. Engwall, Conrad Anker (the now legendary mountaineer), and brothers Jay and Kevin Boyle set out to introduce this effective design to the skiing and mountaineering world. The four co-founders consisted of three skiers and a rock climber, all of whom aspired to build a business and lifestyle around their respective beloved sport.

CliffCliff Outdoors is a family owned business located in Casper, Wyoming that designs and manufactures unique practical outdoor gear. Our current product line is geared to needs of practical fly anglers. In the future you will also see some really cool stuff for practical outdoors enthusiasts. Some will tell you that Cliff Outdoors was started by the urging of a group of friends that liked some of the "stuff" I had been building. We all had a similar fishing style and they appreciated the utility of my designs. I would argue that it all started because of a small room in the basement of my grandparent's home in Goshen County, Wyoming. The room was filled with fly rods, Winchesters, and the tools to take care of them. My Grandpa was an incredibly handy guy that liked things on the practical side, and I inherited a little of that from him. In his "gear room" you could feel the potential for outdoor adventure. That room drew me like a magnet and it was there that I first started learning that having the Right Gear at the Right Time has a direct impact on the opportunity for outdoor success.

Along this journey, we’ve developed a way of doing things that we call The Scott Difference. It’s focused on handcrafting every rod we sell.

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.”

KimberKimber was founded with the singular purpose of building fine sporting firearms, better even than classics from the golden age of American gunmaking. Modern manufacturing techniques would be embraced and used to advantage, but assembly, fit and finish could only depend on practiced hands. There would be no compromise in features, materials or performance.
JetboilIt all started in 2001 with a simple but powerful idea. Frustrated with heavy vacuum bottles and clunky stoves, Jetboil founders Dwight Aspinwall and Perry Dowst set out to make outdoor cooking easier. They discovered that the secret to a fast and friendly design lies in increasing heat transfer efficiency. Alternating between lab and mountains, a series of designs were subjected to intense experimental and field testing. The result is a series of products as reliable as they are remarkable; as usable as they are unique.

CostaIn 1983, a group of hardcore fishermen who spent their days exploring the globe and battling extreme elements came to realize that the sunglasses they were relying on weren't as hardcore as their adventures. Seeing the world in absolute clarity and protecting their eyes was a must. So when they couldn't find worthy sunglasses, they decide to build their own. And Costa was born.
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.

Gore-TexThe origin of waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® outerwear, footwear, and gloves starts with five little letters: ePTFE. ePTFE, or expanded polytetrafluoroethylene, was created by Bob Gore in 1969 when he rapidly stretched PTFE under certain conditions. The result was an incredibly strong, microporous material with an amazing list of characteristics including low water adsorption and good weathering properties. By 1978, GORE-TEX® fabric was introduced and the world met the first truly waterproof, breathable outerwear. Thanks to our commitment to innovation and creativity, waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® products have continued to improve and evolve to keep in step with the changing needs of our customers. The basic hallmarks that make our outerwear, footwear, and gloves the choice of serious professionals and casual outdoor enthusiasts alike remain, however: The GORE-TEX® membrane:The secret of GORE-TEX® products -- which are both completely waterproof and completely breathable at the same time -- lies within its our revolutionary bi-component membrane. The membrane contains over 9 billion microscopic pores which are approximately 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, but 700 times bigger than a molecule of moisture vapor. So while water in its liquid form cannot penetrate the GORE-TEX® membrane, as moisture vapor it can easily escape. Waterproof, windproof and breathable:The GORE-TEX® membrane makes garments durably waterproof, windproof and breathable so that you stay dry and comfortable. Durable:Waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® outerwear is made of the very toughest fabrics and is thoroughly tested to guarantee performance even after serious wear and tear. Easy care: Just because it’s high tech doesn’t mean it has to be high maintenance. GORE-TEX® fabric is extremely easy to take care of and won’t lose its effectiveness even after repeated washing.

The point is, you can always look to Kershaw for every day carrying knives that can tame any cardboard box and liberate any purchase from its plastic packaging, sporting knives that make hunting, fishing, watersports, and camping even better, work knives that won’t let you down, and tactical knives that ensure you’re ready for anything.
PatagoniaPatagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothes for climbing – as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. These are all silent sports. None requires a motor; none delivers the cheers of a crowd. In each sport, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between us and nature.
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.
Hare and HartIt was a blustery July day in Buenos Aires when college friends Emily Harrison and Jennie Engelhardt first envisioned a company that would combine the tradition of handcrafted Argentine leather products with contemporary fashion. Later that year, they began designing the first Hare+Hart collection which launched Fall 2010. The two are currently based out of Buenos Aires and New York and spend much of their time designing, brainstorming and scanning via the internet. (Thanks, Al Gore!) All Hare+Hart products are made in Argentina by Argentine craftsmen using Argentine leather.
GregoryAt age 14 Wayne Gregory designed his first backpack as part of a Boy Scout project. Shortly after this experience he met Andy Drollinger, the founder of San Diego California Adventure 16, at a boy scout camporee. Andy was impressed with Wayne's design and over the next few years Wayne could be found hanging around the Adventure 16 factory, buying raw materials and tinkering with a variety of backpack ideas. He soon became the young companies second employee. In 1970, Wayne started his first company, Sunbird, with a goal to produce advanced external frame packs. Unhappy with the limitations of externals, he dissolved the company in 1973 and began working as a freelance designer (sleeping bags, tents, and technical apparel) for a number of companies in the newly emerging outdoor specialty industry. Intrigued with new directions in soft packs and internal frame concepts he decided it was time to get back to his first love, designing backpacks, and in 1977 Wayne founded Gregory Mountain Products in San Diego, California.

KaskEvery brand has a story. Here we would just talk a little bit about what we achieved so far, and where we got inspiration from to some of our patterns and styles in the past and today. So, when Kask was found in 2001, Kaj Zackrisson & Sverre Liliequist knew how to crochet since some years. The beanies that we made for our selves and our friends, became very popular so we decided to try to build a little brand, the “business plan” was to create unique beanies to wear with pride! As important as the looks the functionality was also in focus, a soft non itchy smooth beanie was created. we were also very clear with that the beanies should work out for our lifestyle, and never feel itchy in the forehead! The first pattern we made we decided to call “Sickbird”, and the inspiration for that was the Sickbird award at the freeskiing world tour events, and yes, both of us received it a couple of times. This pattern worked out really well, and the Sickbird have been seen on numbers of Kask products since then, now lately still on beanies but also on the ski socks and merino base layers.

TervisLet’s take a little trip back in time. It’s 1946. Detroit. Engineers Frank Cotter and G. Howlett Davis hit on something big: they harness the natural insulating powers of air to create a permanently sealed, double-walled tumbler. Finally a way to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. Not to mention, it is virtually indestructible. This outstanding innovation changed the drink ware industry forever. Talk about a game changer. Combining the last three letters of each of their last names, Cotter and Davis dubbed their new cup brand “Tervis”. In the years to follow, they worked hard to refine and improve their designs. The original tall, cylindrical tumbler evolved into additional sizes and products. Today, Tervis offers six tumbler sizes, plus hundreds of customizable designs, emblems, and accessory combinations. The Donelly family purchased the Tervis product rights in the 1950s and incorporated the Tervis Tumbler Company in 1967. To this day, all Tervis products are proudly made in North Venice, Florida, where over 700 people are employed through this family-owned-and-operated business. In 2011 we celebrated 65 years of making quality made-to-order tumblers.
Victorinox Swiss ArmyWhen my great-grandfather Karl Elsener opened a cutlery workshop to deliver a soldier knife to the Swiss army in 1884, he had a revolutionary idea in mind. He was looking for a compact and sturdy knife, which offered many functions combined in a single tool. What he invented has long become a legend: the Original Swiss Army Knife. Over the years, both customer needs and technology have changed. The Swiss Army Knife has evolved by responding to these needs, while remaining an essential tool our clients can rely on.
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.

Winston Fly Rods1929 is an infamous year in financial circles, yet is cherished by anglers worldwide. That year, following the stock market crash, Robert Winther and Lew Stoner started what is known today as or the R.L. Winston Rod Company. Originally calling their company the Winston-Stoner Manufacturing Co., they later combined elements from both their names, and renamed it the R.L. Winston Rod Company. Technicians at heart, they began the Winston tradition of archiving each rod with a journal entry and a serial number. Almost immediately, the bamboo rods these two men built earned a reputation for performance and exceptional quality.

Beyond CoastalYears of sun exposure and the ensuing effects drove Shawn Biega to start Beyond Coastal Suncare. A diehard skier and surfer, Shawn and his cohorts spent endless hours in the sun year-round, every day their skin taking a beating. Although they wore sunscreen, too many of his friends were being diagnosed with skin cancer. After some initial research Shawn was disappointed to find the sun care market filled with greasy, chemical laden formulas that claimed broad spectrum protection. After years of research and testing (on himself, not animals!) in surf breaks, skate parks, and ski slopes, in 2006, Beyond Coastal Suncare was born. Two years later we grew a bit and relocated to Utah's Wasatch Mountains. We miss the surf, but love the skiing! The outdoor opportunities are plentiful in Utah and the sun is harsh. This combination continues to spur our constant research into better sun care. As individuals we are parents, athletes, consumers and concerned members of our global community. As a company and signatory of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics we are committed to offering your family the cleanest, healthiest sun care products possible at a reasonable price. Our formulas are crafted to offer true broad-spectrum protection and are packed with moisturizing botanical antioxidants that nourish, repair, and hydrate your skin.
