As avid outdoor enthusiasts, Jeff and Julie Streeter were accustomed to 100+ days of skiing in Colorado and backcountry excursions in all four seasons. So when they started a family, friends suggested they may have to give up their backcountry pursuits. They both thought, why?
Determined to share their love of the outdoors with their young family, they began searching for quality kids gear to match their active lifestyle. It wasnt easy. While much of what they wanted simply didnt exist, what they did find was typically of shoddy construction, poor design, or both. As parents they understood that kids, even more-so than adults, needed to be warm, dry, and safe in their outdoor activities.
One day, unable to buy a decent ski training harness for his 18-month-old son, Jeff decided to make one himself, with a twist. With Julies help, the technology executive with a chemical engineering degree soon found himself hand-sewing harnesses in his off hours. The twist? As a parent Jeff was accustomed to the constant bending over to pick up the little ones just getting their ski legs, so he incorporated a safety handle into the harness. The harness design and quality proved to be an instant success. By 2004, it was pretty clear the Streeters were on to something: an outdoor gear for kids company that parents could trust to provide functional, quality products, and incredible family memories.
