Give'r Origins Adventure - Canada Spring 2017

Over 5 years ago, the Give'r story began when a crew of adventurers from Jackson, Wyoming headed into the wilderness of Ontario, Canada.  This trip was the fifth annual of it's kind, and to commemorate this milestone of radness, a handful of hats were created: combining the home mountain range of Jackson Hole (the Tetons) and the phrase that encompassed the philosophy of the trip: Give'r.  Give'r: The beginnings of the brand
The original Give'r Hat

To give it your all, to go for it...that was the underlying per-requisite for the trip.  Logistics, gear, route planning, travel, physical prep for paddling many many miles and a willingness to roll with the punches of extreme weather, curve balls and the complexities of many moving parts in a remote area.  To journey over 100 miles in unfamiliar territory, attempting to catch dinner along the way, a unique mentality was needed, and the awesomeness that resulted formed the bedrock for the Give'r brand.

Upon return from the epic adventure, the inquiries to the meaning of the hat and subsequent requests to acquire one of their own began to shed light on the potential of this philosophy and movement.  Thus began the Give'r story.

Northern Pike - Give'r Origins

The most recent chapter of Give'r involves a return to the wilderness where it all began...the Origins of Give'r.  A crew of seven (including Co-Founder Bubba Albrecht, Maestro of Radness Daniel Nichols and Give'r Athletes Cody, JC, Bill, Dave and Tyler), ventured into Canada for the annual trip where there was no shortage of excitement.

Road trip curveballs, monsoon-level storms, a rollercoaster ride of temperatures and wind, and the inherent risks of handling big fish with razor sharp teeth...it was a Give'r trip through and through.

While Mother Nature kept things nice and spicy for the crew and their Give'r Gear, the magic of multi-day wilderness exploration made for an unforgettable experience, reinforcing the philosophy of what can be possible when we give something our all.

What do Lebron James, Sports Illustrated and Give'r Have In Common?

While not a question I could have imagined in late 2016, it is one that has myself and the Give'r community all sorts of fired up!  In the same issue where Lebron James was crowned Sportsperson of The Year by Sports Illustrated, the 4-Season Give'r Gloves were featured as a top pick for the winter season and gift giving.

Sports Illustrated: Sportsperson of the Year 2016

"Whether you're splitting logs or building the family snowman, these versatile gloves have you covered, hands down."

We couldn't think of a more glorious crown for these 4-Season Gloves that were taken from concept to reality in 2016.  For this, we give thanks to the Give'r Community and Kickstarter Backers who receive The Give'r Award for "Supporters of The Year".  The Give'r that lives within each of you has changed the game for our team and community, and we charge into 2017 letting you know we are giving it our all at Give'r HQ!

Oh yeah, side note...The King and I have been texting, and his pair of 4-Season Gloves are on their way to Cleveland.  Gotta keep those hands in prime condition to bring home another championship!

Keep on Given'r!

OUTSIDE is IN for Give'r!

So, it was a big day in Give’r Country last week. Outside Magazine featured Give’r as one of “The 6 Best Outdoor Clothing Companies You’ve Never Heard Of”. We’re not one to feather our own cap, but we’ve been psyched and appreciative of the shout out and are charging forward with excitement here in Jackson, WY.

The article has had over 5K shares, and we’re stoked to be in great company: NWAlpine, Bambool, Roscoe Outdoor, Ridge Merino, and American Mountain Co. all of which are available at Garage Grown Gear.  A BIG thank you goes out to author Amy Hatch, also the founder of Garage Grown Gear.  She and her team seek out innovative and wildly cool outdoor startups...and we're lucky to be working with them!  Thanks for Given'r Amy!

Check out our feature text below:

Part of the reason companies like Patagonia and Arc’teryx are so successful is because they were started by people who wanted to make the best clothing for their own adventures. Today, that same entrepreneurial spirit lives on with a new handful of boutique brands. Here are six we recommend keeping an eye on.

Give’r

In the small Canadian town where Bubba Albrecht spent time growing up, he often heard the term “give’r,” which meant “get after it.” A few years ago, Albrecht made a hat featuring the phrase and an outline of the Tetons (he now lives in the area). People regularly stopped to ask him about the hat, so he decided to start making them, and in March 2012 launched Give’r. The line has since expanded to include tees, hand-branded leather gloves, and high-performance base layers great for backcountry ski laps or practicing downward dog at your local yoga studio. Give'r is also a 1% for the Planet member, which means one percent of its profits support environmental work.

A few comments from the readers:

@Livefreeandhike: “Cool Stuff by Innovative People, time for some Christmas Shopping”

@kovasP – “So great to see small gear companies from the US being showcased”

@jigidy – “So great to see these companies highlighted!  I love my Bambool, softest baselayer I own and my Give'r Silkweight All Sport lives up to its name as I've used it fishing, running, skiing, etc."

Yes, we agree, the Silkweight All Sport is pretty darn neat. Check it out here and see what the hype is all about: Silkweight All Sport

Thanks for celebrating with us, and thank you to Outside Magazine for featuring us!

Teddi Hofmann and Latino Outdoors

Give'r Ambassador Teddi Hofmann has always enjoyed her time in the outdoors, and in particular sharing those experiences with family and friends.

 

More recently, Teddi learned of an opportunity to be a part of a larger community of outdoor enthusiasts, Latino Outdoors. This organization provides a network for Latinos to engage and learn in the outdoors while making cross-cultural connections. Within her own community, she has met a number of young Latinos who have been making strides to Give’r in the outdoors.

Outdoor enthusiasts (from left to right), Yair, Janet, and Bianca take a break from their freshman year studies at the University of Wyoming to enjoy the first snowfall of the year in Laramie!

Koozie, Croozie, Neck Coozie or Coozie-Kroakie?

The concept of an insulated can holder that hangs around ones neck gives way to many different names.  Is it a croozie, a koozie, a coozie-kroakie or a neck coozie?  While all are correct in some way, we prefer The Give'r River Runner...the neck coozie born in the waters where your beverage could not be set down safely, and your activity required the use of both hands.



This dilemma of keeping a beverage close by while keeping your hands free for action gave way to several prototypes, most of which were pretty rustic and rather junior varsity.  Following extensive research and development and trial and error, the Give'r River Runner Neck Coozie evolved to its current form, which is nothing short of gorgeous.


Featuring built-to-last sturdy construction, a non-abrasive smooth neck strap and general ability to stretch and flex with neoprene material, this accessory gets it done, day in, day out; season after season, and year after year.  The simple yet beautiful functionality of the River Runner is only fully understood once on your neck...from there, we can't wait to hear how much you love it.


Give'r recently partnered with Bud Light and their Whatever, USA campaign in creating custom River Runners for their fans and the fortunate thousand who won tickets to the 3-day event.  These fans were selected on the basis of being #UpForWhatever...which we see as synonymous with being Ready to Give'r.



Give'r,

Hugh Bette

100 Trail Crew - Ambassadors in Action


On July 7th, this Ambassador crew of Wiggs, Tyler and Hunter embarked on an adventure they had only dreamed of, made possible through a true Give’r pursuit of that dream (http://www.give-r.com/pages/100-trail-crew). Not only did they return to Wyoming to spend time together and catch up, but they endured a 10 day long backpacking expedition through the Wind River Mountain Range as the winners of the Huckberry Explorer’s Grant Program. Through the inspiration of a 10 x 10 challenge, they were traversing through the Wind River High Route as trekked by Alan Dixon and Don Wilson, with some of their own adjustments and resulting goals:

  1. 10 consecutive days of hiking
  2. 10 sunsets/sunrises photographed
  3. 10 animals photographed
  4. 10 lakes swum in
  5. 10 hikers interviewed
  6. 10 fish caught via fly fishing
  7. 10 peaks summitted
  8. 10 tail-grab pics on those 10 peaks
  9. 10,000 feet of cumulative elevation gain
  10. 100 miles hiked

Bonus: 10,000+ foot peak summited

On this trip, they had planned to cross the Continental Divide four times, traverse ten passes between 12,200 ft and 11,500 ft and cover 100 miles with about 20,000 feet of cumulative elevation gain (nearly the same elevation gain as climbing the Grand Teton 3 times over).

Their adventure was executed and they look forward to sharing their stories with the Give’r Community in hopes of inspiring others to pursue their dreams. They had big dreams when first meeting in Wyoming, and have even bigger dreams 11 years later, but what they have found is that when giving them their all, one can never be dissappointed.

Keep tuned in for photos, videos and stories as they re-count their Give'r adventure in the Wind River Mountains!

Give'r Goes Red, White and Blue!

There is much to be celebrated at this particular point in time...

1 - It is summer...arguably the most rad season of the year
2 - Team USA is competing in the World Cup, and doing this in a serious way
3 - The 4th of July is right around the corner, and I can't friggen wait!
4 - The 2014 Red, White and BOOM! T-shirt is here, looking fresh and well equipped to Give'r
5 - Should you prefer shirts without sleeves, the Give'r Summer Tank Top line is calling your name...should you choose to answer

While my excitement is tough to express in words, I hope to hear of the many summer adventures you plan on getting into, and wish for plenty of Red, White and Blue in your near future!


Give'r,
Hugh Bette
