Wash, Rinse, Recycle—The North Face Environmental Commitment

What to expect from a fleece jacket made of recycled materials? When it’s The North Face fleece, expect the same comfort, versatility, softness and warmth you’re used to. Getting to a jacket that checks those boxes and is part of their overall sustainability program wasn’t simple, however—and it’s part of their ongoing commitment to reducing carbon emissions. The North Face has been encouraging and partnering with ranchers and manufacturers to shorten the supply chain. Regenerative agriculture is part of that, specifically carbon farming that draws down carbon into the soil while yielding important crops like cotton and wool.Chemical responsibility comes

Discovering the Ancient Wisdom of Sherpa Adventure Gear

Under the cover of night we took the long winding road to Naktapor, hoping to catch the first rays of the rising sun from up in the mountains. The air was cool as we stepped out of the van and made our way to the lookout point. We watched as the fog slowly lifted, revealing the valley below. As the sky grew paler, the Himalayas came into view. Stretching out in the distance towards the east, the snow covered peaks rose into the clouds. The legendary range, home to Everest, has become a pilgrimage site for mountaineers for over a century.

Our Favourite Face Masks

Some manufacturing companies created masks for the public as well as healthcare workers, brands like Kanuk, Little Yogi, Naked & Famous and Keen. Their experience and craftsmanship was put to work to make beautiful, high-quality face masks we’ll actually want to wear. And with many provinces making masks mandatory in closed public spaces, the timing couldn’t be better. While you'll find an extensive collection on altitude-sports.com, here are some of our faves. ShoeChaussureBagSacTentTente Kanuk: Health Regulations with Elegance Well-established in Montreal since 1970, Kanuk was born out of a local entrepreneur’s desire to make winter coats for our cold and humid climate.  Armed with its

Growing a Revolution

Can agriculture save the planet? That’s what Patagonia believes. Patagonia is the outdoor company that’s made battling climate change their front line. Even their slogan states it: We’re in business to save the planet.   I certainly didn’t expect to find myself on a farm up to my elbows in earth, gardening with the precursors to an agricultural revolution. My impression of California was more of a place ravaged by years of withering drought and wildfires, an ironic twist to the supposed cornucopia of America. And yet it is in precisely this climate that Patagonia is working on their new project:

Wonderfully Eccentric Sunglasses by Pit Viper

With a psychedelic website that's reminiscent of good ol' Windows 95 and a more-than-dubious sense of humour, Pit Viper is on its way to conquering the market of urban and sport sunglasses. The Utah-based brand seems to make a point of not taking themselves too seriously, all while manufacturing some of the most resistant and imaginative sunglasses around. Pit Viper: With Respect and Authority Pit Viper's slogan is hard to forget. In 2012, adventurer Chuck Mumford wished to find an alternative to his sunglasses, which kept on breaking and couldn't survive his most intense expeditions. That's how Pit Viper, dedicated

Kanuk—A Turn to the New

Kanuk winter jackets seem to be everywhere these days. And with reason. A Montreal icon for over 50 years, Kanuk felt an overhaul was needed—something fresh, younger more dynamic, while still holding onto their DNA. A successful transformation by all metrics. Quality, Montreal Style Let’s dive into the reasons Kanuk had built up such a faithful fan base. First, their coats have always been made in Montreal, something that ranked high for the locals. No matter how warm-welcoming, Montreal has always been known for glacial winter temperatures. That Kanuk was born out of this climate is hardly surprising. [caption id="attachment_94194"

9 Heritage Brands You Need To Know

Traditional Heritage BrandsTraditional heritage brands convey imagery of the cabin in the woods. They have a rustic earthy feel that reminds us of fallen leaves, and damp fall mornings. Many of the traditional heritage brands find their roots in early workwear.Brands like Barbour, Filson, and Woolrich craft their apparel using natural materials like cotton, wool, denim and leather.  “They don’t make them like they used to” doesn’t apply because traditional heritage brands still make them every bit as tough and durable as they used to. BarbourFounded in 1894, Barbour first made a name for itself on the international stage in the 1930s when it started
