C.F. BurkheimerOur fly trout rods are light in hand, and heavy in performance. If they don’t cast 80 feet with good turnover right after they dropped a fly on a quarter at 25, they’re not Burkheimer’s. We want to build you a rod that you’re proud to fish with, because you deserve it, and the trout deserve it. We don’t have a “FastX3″ series, or a “Power Enhancement Taper”, that’s not the Burkheimer way. We build stunningly beautiful rods with superb performance, because that’s what the situation demands.
MarkerIn 1952, skiing pioneer and innovator Hannes Marker founded the Marker ski binding company and introduced the first commercially successful releasable ski binding. What followed over the years were many changes, evolutions and market firsts; such as the Simplex Toe; Rotomat Heel; Active AFD; Stainless steel, AFD; Mechanically Operating Toe Cups; Twincam; Full Spectrum; Biometric; and revolutionary performance interface systems like Selective Control and new Piston Control.
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.

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.

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.”

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.
Abel ReelsQuality. Dependability. Precision. Innovation. Beauty. Over the last 25 years there have been many words associated with Abel Reels, but those in our mission statement remain our favorites: To design and build the best, most dependable gear in the world and give world class customer service. Living by that mantra, along with the continued support of our loyal customers, has allowed us to continue to manufacture the best reels and tools available to fly anglers today. 1988 seems to be a lifetime ago, when we started small (relatively speaking) with our standard arbor Big Game series of reels. Back then, our original drags boasted “Stop a Sub” power, and that tradition of strength lives on in every Super Series reel today.

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.
Freedom ArmsDedicated to maintaining the stringent standards needed to achieve uncompromising quality and reputation, the craftsmen at Freedom Arms power the success of our product line.
UmpquaIn the early 70’s Umpqua Feather Merchants revolutionized the way business was done in the fly fishing industry, particularly in regard to the most indispensable piece of equipment used by every fly fisher...their flies! Few anglers today are aware of the impact Umpqua Feather Merchants has had on their enjoyment of the sport of fly fishing.
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.
QiA perfectly worn-in sweater you reach for time and time again was hard to come by before Qi launched in 2002. At first, our in-house design team worked to transform traditional knitwear by traveling worldwide—from the arid cliffs of Italy to Inner Mongolia—to find the most luxurious and coveted cashmere available. By mixing these top-of-the-line materials with innovative designs, Qi was able to create high-quality and modern knitwear.

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.

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?
OptimusGas stoves are simplest. Many people who cook in the outdoors choose a gas stove because of its simplicity. You don’t have to fill it with fuel, it’s quick to light, and easy to control. A multi-fuel stove, as the name implies, gives you the flexibility of using different fuels. A white gasoline stove in an ultra classic lightweight design gives you the performance you need at high altitudes.
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.
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.

KavuFounded in the Pacific Northwest in 1993, KAVU has been around. We figure that if you're going to do something for 20+ years you better love it. Fortunately, we do. We scramble up mountains, run rivers on inflatable couches, and ski sand dunes. We sit around campfires and hatch crazy schemes that become the next adventure, and we spill a lot of beer on our Chilliwack shorts because we're laughing too hard to keep a grip on the bottle. And that's just during work hours. Hey, we can't send our world-class clothing into the wild without field-testing it first. We understand what you need because we're out doing the same thing: playing hard, getting dirty, creating fun, and loving life.

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.

EberlestockWelcome to our family owned company.Under our brand you'll find an original and unique mix of products and information, but you should also notice a central theme. Unlike any company in the world, we have addressed the need for efficiency and mobility for those who hit the trail, or the fire escape, or the rappel line, while carrying weapons. The basis of our ability to do this comes from our founder's experience in the Olympic sport of biathlon, in hardcore solo wilderness hunting, in applying our essential understanding of the military, and above all in listening to our customers. We jump in and get dirty with them. We're not afraid to throw a little weight onto our backs and see what happens, both metaphorically and physically.

VasqueIn 1965 Vasque founder William D. Sweasy traveled to Europe and found our future. Outdoor recreation and mountaineering were sweeping the continent, and Sweasy knew it was a matter of time until the craze found its way stateside. He began preparing his high quality mountaineering and hiking boots so he’d be ready when the time came. After a brief run under the brand name “Voyageur,” Sweasy changed the name to Vasque in 1971 (for Fort Vasquez in the mountain mecca of Colorado). And no, the rest is not history. The Vasque trail continues today, breaking new ground toward what’s next. That’s what happens when you keep your eyes firmly focused on the trail ahead.

KeltySince 1952, Kelty has built affordable, reliable outdoor gear that enables everyone, from the first-time camper to the experienced mountaineer, to embrace any experience with confidence. After several years of making packs in his home garage for friends, Dick sells 29 packs in his first year of business for 24 dollars each. Dick hand-forms and welds each of the frames, and his wife, Nena, sews each of the pack bags. Kelty packs first include aircraft-aluminum contoured frames, padded shoulder straps, waist belts, clevis-pin attachment of pack bags, nylon pack cloth, zippered pockets, hold-open frames, and nylon back bands. The first shoulder straps were produced using wool carpeting for padding. The original clevis pins were made from aircraft rivets.

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.
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.
