MADE LOCALLY, WORN GLOBALLY.
DESIGNED BY AND FOR PASSIONATE CLIMBERS.
Clothing Built For The Alpine
Go farther, faster and higher in greater comfort than ever before. The 4.5 ounce (that's not a typo) Eyebright Jacket is the newest evolution of our ultralight waterproof/breathable shell made from Dyneema® Composite Fabrics. And it's laser cut and handmade right here in Oregon.
More than four years of research and testing has gone into creating what we believe to be the ultimate in ultralight weather protection. The Eyebright can go places and withstand conditions that would reduce most ultralight jackets to bits and pieces all over the mountain.
Join us on our latest adventures: from climbing trips to all corners of the world to technical reviews and analysis of the gear and materials we use
JOIN OUR JOURNEY
ABOUT NW ALPINE
Founded in 2010 by Bill Amos, NW Alpine began with the idea that apparel for alpine climbing should fulfill the technical needs of modern alpine climbers. Drawing from the amazing talent pool around the Portland, Oregon apparel industry, we built a team of professionals who have helped us fulfill that mission.
Bill enjoys climbing and has managed to flail his way up various first ascents and significant repeats in the Northwest and beyond (including the first ascent of The Deer Hunter, the first modern mixed route in the Columbia River Gorge). He is also a passionate student of economics and thinks American manufacturing is awesome.
Who is OUR TRIBE?
The Tribe is a passionate community of devoted climbers, intuitive designers, and local textile-industry experts. We are men and women who care about feeling connected to our products in a way that is only possible by making them locally. Together, we conceptualize, test, and produce apparel that is truly made by and for climbers.
