A path that stretches 2,600 miles along the whole length of the continental US, the Pacific Crest Trail is not well known outside of the United States. Yet it is on this trail that the history of many well known and idolized American outdoor brands developed and tested their first products, where young men from the YMCA and Scouts mapped and planned a route that was to become one of the very first National Scenic Trails, & where today people still attempt to ‘Thru-Hike’ the entire trail in one season as a test of endurance and mental strength.

The pacific crest collection is a celebration of the primitive outdoor gear and customized sportswear that helped thru-hikers on the trail in those early years of adventure & discovery.

Referencing styles from the past with details from contemporary performance wear, it is a tribute to free spirited adventure & life on the trail.
