We dream up, design and manufacture world class technical outdoor equipment for ourselves, and for anyone else who loves to spend their lives in the mountains. Our products are lightweight, minimalistic and uncompromising, with an engineered athletic fit. They are all designed as essential parts of the Stellar Equipment Layering system.
We only use the very best materials available — the most breathable waterproof membrane on the market, 1020 fill power RDS-certified down, synthetic insulation developed for space exploration, innovative and ultralightweight fabrics, and the highest-quality waterproof zippers and components — to name a few.
Our factories hold the highest standard in regards to quality, as well as environmental certificates and workforce ethics. Our name obligates us to reach higher — we strive to produce truly stellar equipment.
This isn’t our first — far from it, actually. Many of us have been in this game for a long time. And over the years of our involvement, two major insights have grown stronger. First, the outdoor life, mountains, nature, sports and amazing experiences are really what we’re into. This is what we want to spend the rest of our lives doing. Once a hobby that turned into a career, creating great stuff has transformed itself into a way of life.
Second, there is something seriously wrong with the outdoor business. It is stuck in a system where cutting costs and raising prices is the norm. Where cost effectivity is more important than great design. Where marketing new products — only to ship them off to the outlets a few months later to make room for even more new stuff — is considered good business. It is not.
We started Stellar Equipment because we wanted to get away from trade shows and budget meetings, because we want to spend more time in the mountains we love, using fantastic gear and hanging out with great people.
We only sell through our own meta channels, that is, in our web shop or in our showroom. That way we have full control of our products, maintain a genuine and true dialogue with our customers, and can decide for ourselves what factories, materials, products and colors we want to work with. We don’t do collections; instead we try to create great products with timeless design from leading materials.
We only change a product when we find superior materials or conceive an enhanced design. Take our top sellers, the Stellar Shell Jacket and Ultralight Down Jacket, unchanged from 2015 until 2021. Their 2.0 versions are the result of seven years of experience and the feedback of thousands of users. Few brands can claim this consistent evolution — or the monumental sustainability impact it holds.
We take the straight path — directly from us, right to you. This unique approach not only allows us to maintain total control over design and delivery but also ensures we take full responsibility for our products. And the bonus? A direct connection between you and us, promoting clear and open communication. By cutting out the middlemen, we offer great outdoor gear at prices that make sense, and a friendly team ready to help.
By choosing Stellar Equipment, you actually make a contribution to a somewhat better and more sustainable world — not because we are perfect, but because we do our best.
