R.E.I. (Recreational Equipment Incorporated) is a favorite among outdoors-women for good reason! It all started in 1938 when a group of 23 climbing friends, united by their love for the outdoors, decided to source quality and affordable gear for their adventures.
MSR (Moutain Safety Research) was founded in 1969 by Larry Penberthy based on the driving notion that "...better, safer, more reliable equipment is the key to unlocking greater adventures." They continue to fulfill this vision and make some of the best gear for outdoor adventure.
Sierra Designs was Born in California and bred on the trail, and since 1965 has been committed to supporting people’s love of the outdoors. Today, that means creating equipment and apparel that is functional, beautiful, and most importantly, attainable.
Outdoor Research began in 1981 during a descent from Denali after a friend was frostbitten and airlifted away, due to an avoidable gaiter failure. Ron Gregg knew he could make safer gear and build his life around adventure, so he quit his job and built Outdoor Research on the idea that life is an adventure, and the best gear makes it more fun.
La Sportiva began in 1931 in Italy. It prides itself (as it should) on the fact that their products are produced and designed in a small mountain town at the foot of the Dolomites. La Sportiva supports 140 families in a unique and enviable environment (and they make amazing shoes!)
