We put great trust in our ambassadors, who use our products with pride and grant us a terrific source of valuable input. Our Scandinavian climate varies quite drastically, and offers us loads of different weather types and environments. We cherish the contrasts of our homes different locations and seasons, and they are our source of inspiration. The dark and snowy winters, warm and sunny summers and rainy falls, are putting our outdoor equipment to the greatest of tests: the constant variety of our weather conditions. Our development of outdoor equipment has made history. In recent years, we’ve won awards for our innovative and attractively designed headlamps, and we continue to push ourselves to evolve and deliver great outdoor equipment.
