Our mission is to create high-quality winter apparel while providing people with resources that enable them to make changes in their lives and communities.
A Pattern of Product Innovation
We love the snow, and we’re committed to creating products that make it more enjoyable. Our innovation method ensures that the products we create are both exciting and useful to our customers.
A Pattern of Social Change
We believe that companies have a responsibility to give back. That’s why 10% of your purchase goes to helping innovators in the region that the product’s pattern represents.
We use the platform Kiva—a marketplace for social impact microloans—to find all of the people we fund. Because the assistance is provided in the form of a loan, it will be repaid and we’ll use it to fund another innovator, and another, and another. This means that your purchase will continue giving back and making a difference in the world!
PowderOut was born around a college lunch table in Provo, Utah when we noticed a need in the winter apparel market. From day one, creating unique, high-quality products and helping those in need have been our two core goals. We’ve still got a long way to roll, but we’re rolling.
Nathan Miller and Michael Harris, our company’s founders, both grew up in
the snow of Utah (the greatest snow on earth?!) Skiing, sledding, and
snowball fights were how they passed their winters. Between graduating
high school and beginning college, both served volunteer missions in a
foreign country for two years and became aware of the great need in these
places for humanitarian aid. After returning to snowy Utah, the two worked
to combine their love of snow with their drive to give back to others, and
PowderOut was born.
