Brands We Trust

Ortovox provides top notch equipment for every back country adventure. Offering tools such as fully loaded backcountry backpacks to warm layers filled with ethically sourced merino wool, Ortovox has the gear you need for your next backcountry outing. KÜHL’s story as an independent brand began in the snow-covered peaks of the Wasatch Mountains. Relentless weather and challenging conditions taught us that if you’re courageous, remain humble, stay hungry, are kind to your community, then the independents will thrive.

As the #1 ranked meal replacement in an evidence based, medically verified review—Apex is proud to have SANS Meal Bar as our trusted nutrition partner.
