But we’re more than just the gear we build. We’re part of a community of friends whose lives are connected by our common need to be outside. Our community is devoted to exploring our outdoor passions and challenging ourselves in the mountains, water and deserts of the planet we love so much.

Curiosity is a prized trait in this role and is fed by the partnership with our Lead Glove designer, who has built an in-house workshop to which the PM of Gloves and Pro will have access. This quiver of tools will be especially advantageous in testing out new technologies, techniques, and prototyping
