Sherpa Adventure Gear: Handmade Items To Last

by / Tuesday, 21 February 2017 / Published in Blog, Home Special, News & Events

At Appalachian Outfitters, we support companies that have a vision to make the world a better place. One of these companies is Sherpa Adventure Gear, established in the mountains of the Himalayas in Nepal.

Built From Experience

Sherpa Adventure Gear is founded on the mountaineering lifestyle of the Sherpas. They honor their legendary traditions and climbers with gear that is designed to endure the elements with the same grit as their climbers.

Founded On History

Because of their mountaineering history, Sherpas understand the best ways to stay warm – and the most beautiful ways, with bright colors that are warming even just looking at them. Staying warm in extreme weather means using the best technology in fabrics and engineering to create gear that can withstand anything, including the Himalayas.

All-Season

The company creates gear to fit all four seasons of the year, from brisk summer nights to frosty winter mornings. No matter the weather, it’s important to feel comfortable and safe in the outdoors.

For A Purpose

At Sherpa Adventure Gear, there are countless reasons to have high standards for the gear that needs to best the outdoors – and high standards for the company’s workforce. Through their work, many families, villages, and Nepalese communities have received meaningful employment and scholarships, helping them attain better lives for themselves and their loved ones. Environmentally, the gear is produced using sustainable practices. Socially, the clothing is made in Kathmandu, where local residents join work that helps to provide for their families. Academically, each time Sherpa Adventure Gear sells a piece of clothing, the company makes a small donation to a scholarship fund for children living in isolated villages in the Himalayas.
