So, when we opened we decided that we wanted the best. . .Look no further. Patagonia has earned it's amazing reputation for a reason. Leading the way as the most eco-friendly company out there, they set an example of what an outdoor and active lifestyle should look like. Northbound carries Patagonia technical pieces and lifestyle pieces. Whatever you choose here, it's going to be a winner!Columbia sportswear applies cutting edge technology and innovation to a broad line of apparel. Jackets, pants, fleece, boots, shoes, etc., are all tested tough so you can enjoy the outdoors longer.
Kuhl is dang near the best selling brand at Northbound Outfitters. Coming very close to Patagonia, we seriously may sell more of this than anything else. Their company is still independently owned and operated out of Salt Lake City, Utah, which is a big thing to say in this industry and world. They are adventure driven and have created pieces that are built for rugged, outdoor wear. This brand is a men's favorite for sure.. but it is starting to make a name for itself in the woman's world too. There isn't a "bad" product made by Kuhl.
Oooooooh VUORI. People go crazy over this stuff. Literally some of the softest clothing we've ever touched! This company was started by a few men that worked for Lululemon & wanted to start their own brand. They took their knowledge and built an activewear line that is to die for!
