Regatta Great Outdoors
When the adventure began, there were just 12 of us, It was 1981. Back then the outdoors was about intrepid explorers, but they just wanted to open their front door and have fun. So they made great products that people could afford, clothing to get them outside and enjoying the fresh air without worrying what it would cost. That’s still what counts for them. Still thinking of new ways to help people, still inspired by the great outdoors and still hanging by the front door when you need them. And it’s still what counts for the ramblers, amblers, hikers and bikers, campers, gardeners and puddle-loving children and everyone else we’ve helped start their own adventure.
