    Our Story Begins in the Dark

    Unplanned bivvies in ice caves, a three day climb stretching into seven, and “don’t fall” belays. Experiences like these in the mountains are the hard lessons that shape our values, and that inspired this company. NW Alpine was founded in 2010 in response to the demand for high quality alpine climbing apparel made in the U.S. Since then, we’ve remained dedicated to the alpine climbing community and their special needs.

    We believe apparel for alpine climbing should fulfill the most stringent technical needs of modern alpine climbers.

    Superior Mountain Apparel


    Since 2010, we’ve designed our apparel to be trusted in the burliest of environments. Drawing from a talented pool of Oregon-based makers, we dream up a layer one day and send out prototypes the next day. Our apparel is directly influenced by input from world-class athletes who put it through the wringer and let us know its breaking points.

     

    We pride ourselves on nimbly responding to the needs of climbers of all disciplines type two-ing it in the mountains and cold places of every continent. We are constantly experimenting with the next generation of materials that make no compromises between function, weight, and durability.

     

    From concept, to creation, to final product, we keep our pieces simple so they simply work. You won’t find us making superfluous lifestyle apparel, unless of course that lifestyle is freezing your butt off a few hundred meters off the deck.

    Made in Oregon, USA.


    Our commitment to the revitalization of American manufacturing is as critical a component to our products as the materials we use to make them.

    By choosing to make our apparel in-house at our headquarters in Salem, Oregon, we are investing in both the climbing community and the community we live in.

    Everything we use has to be made somewhere, by someone. So why not here?
