DEFENDING WILDERNESS

Don’t you hate it when companies say they’re donating a “portion” of their profits to charity, but never tell you how much they’re giving or where it's going?

Well, here’s our deal—we’re hikers first, we love the outdoors, and we give away 10% of our profits every year to wilderness groups. 

Your purchase ensures that groups like Oregon Wild, Ventana Wilderness Alliance, Friends of the Inyo, and Washington Wilderness Coalition get the funds they need to continue their important work. Below are the organizations we're proud to support in their mission to keep the West Coast wild.    

Friends of the Inyo

On the eastern edge of California, there exists a vast and wild landscape where bighorn sheep roam across alpine ridges, golden trout brighten tumbling streams, and the Milky Way outshines city lights. Founded in 1986, Friends of the Inyo is a Bishop, CA-based nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to the preservation, exploration, and stewardship of the region’s public lands. Friends of the Inyo cares for the Inyo Wilderness by connecting people to the wonders of the Eastern Sierra’s public lands. Learn more at www.friendsoftheinyo.org
