Sherpas are the unsung heroes of Himalayan expeditions. It is the Sherpas who establish the climbers’ camps, carry the loads and set the fixed ropes to the summit. Sherpa Adventure Gear was established in 2003 to pay tribute to these high-altitude heroes. But it is more than just a brand name. This is high-quality outdoor and lifestyle clothing with authentic Himalayan heritage. The company is entirely Sherpa-owned, with firm roots in Nepal, where the overwhelming majority of its products are all designed, developed and manufactured – providing local training and employment for hundreds of people. In addition, the brand is committed to educating the next generation of Nepal’s children – by building libraries and renovating classrooms, training teachers and school staff, and developing and distributing schoolbooks and resources. In fact, every bit of Sherpa gear you buy funds a school day for a child in Nepal. So, this is not just beautifully made stuff, it’s also kit with a conscience. Namaste.
