Seems like climbing and hiking runs in the blood of most Pacific North-westerners. That’s no different for Oregonian and NW Alpine’s founder Bill Amos who is out climbing in his backyard while designing gear made their too. Crafted from Polartec® High Efficiency Power Dry® fabric the Spider Hoody is built to withstand chilly mountain winds and breath as you sweat.

It’s a little hard to avoid being inspired by java in the pacific northwest. So in addition to helping fuel brothers Wesley and Dylan Harkavy’s obsession with skate boards and surf boards, coffee also pushed them through so many build hours working with richly stained boards of walnut that go into their appropriately named Cortado Coffee table. The piece share two levels of surface space between both wood and steel that define it’s split structural design and material selection. Handmade in Oregon and delivered to your home ready to accommodate your morning french press.
