26 years of simple rugged value.
Instructors, Teachers, Ski Patrolers and Outdoor enthusiasts:
Since Fall 1985 when I made my first 10 large yellow pyramid tarps for Pacific Crest Outward Bound while working there as instructor, I have been building outdoor gear for schools and outdoor folks.
I’ve 17 years experience working as an instructor for several outdoor schools including Outward Bound, Adventurous Christians, Marion County Wilderness Challenge, St Francis Boys Home’s Passport for Adventure, NEW Rural Resources and Boy Scouts , so I understand the need for robust gear. Through input from customers, there are many ultralight products offered.
Famous climbers heading for Patagonia and record setting through hikers have purchased Oware gear, even though sponsered by other companies where they could get gear free.
I use simple designs to keep costs down and durability up. Thread is matched to the fabric type
Does your school, scout group, ski area, or retail store need something made to your specifications? I especially enjoy developing new products to meet your needs, (quantity orders for special designs keep costs reasonable).
