From the highest peaks of the Himalayas, our people lead the world of mountaineering with warmth, grace and good humor. As a Sherpa-founded company, we seek to honor our legendary high altitude climbers by creating adventure gear that earns their praise.

ANCIENT WISDOM

For hundreds of years, Sherpas have searched for the most beautiful ways to stay warm, dry and comfortable in the highest mountains on earth. So today, naturally, we embrace the latest technical materials and designs, and we test our gear in the Himalayas for your greater well-being, we also weave into every garment a rich heritage of time-honored beliefs and humility. It is an odyssey of the heart.

We’re a small brand with a great big heart, and every authentic garment we make—for trekking, traveling and exploring the world— reflects our Himalayan homeland. Whether summiting an unclimbed peak, trekking a vast savanna or sightseeing in an exotic market, Sherpa creates 4-season gear designed to deliver safety, comfort and style. We believe the journey of life is the greatest adventure of all.

A Sherpa Story

Sherpa Adventure Gear


Sherpa Adventure Gear was founded in May of 2003 by Tashi Sherpa, as a living memorial to the unsung heroes of Mt. Everest. For decades, climbers have always been grateful for having a Sherpa companion on the treacherous slopes of the Himalayas. It is the Sherpa who makes the route, carries the load and sets the ropes to the top and back.

In this spirit, Sherpa Adventure Gear seeks to honor the legendary high-altitude climbers by creating adventure gear that earns their praises.

And we are focused on providing economic and social stability to the people of Nepal through steady employment, quality working conditions and educational opportunities for future generations.

Each season we grow. But at the core we will always be a small company with a simple vision of doing business in the inimitable way of the Sherpas: One step at a time, helping each other on the climb up, and never losing sight of the destination.
