This program has been in development for a combined total of 70 plus years. From the Appalachian Mountains to the Delores River and everything in between. Goth music, trance music, desert raves on a full moon on the backside of Big Bear. Chunky plastic waterproof zippers, convertible pants, and aftermarket cargo pockets with or without proper gusseting. Wall rides and wallies and late shove-its in the Utah high desert. The evolution of the Carabiner in contemporary fashion to Dyneema Gospel. We consider everything.

If you need to be in a 3-7 month long email thread the subject title of which is: Gorpcore, Poseurs and Fetishism—using tools vs. being a tool. This is your chance.

Lockeed had Skunkworks.
Marmot sold ski jackets in the 90’s.
Horny Toad made hideous supplex “clothing” in the early aughts.
Black Yak is a Korean mountaineering incarnate.

Our animal is probably a Badger or a Wolverine.

We are open source. We will share everything. Patterns, beta, all of it.

Now you know.
