    A MODERN BRAND, AN ANCIENT WISDOM

    Weaving together the latest designs and technology with the rich heritage and time-honoured beliefs of Nepal.
  • OUR VALUES
    Sherpa Adventure Gear

    TRADITION

    From the highest peaks of the Himalayas, our people lead the world of mountaineering with warmth, grace and good humour. As a Sherpa-founded company, we seek to honour 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-honoured beliefs and humility. It is an odyssey of the heart.

    BRAND EXPEDITION

    We’re a small brand with a great big heart, and every authentic garment we make—for trekking, travelling 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
    A MODERN BRAND, AN ANCIENT WISDOM

    Sherpa Adventure Gear was founded in May 2003 by Tashi Sherpa, as a living memorial to the unsung heroes of Mt. Everest.

    Since the first ascents of Everest, climbers have relied upon the invaluable assistance of 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.

     

    We are a small brand with a big heart, dedicated to 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 brand changing the world 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.

    We are Sherpa.
