 By hitting our stretch goal we will be able to bring more products to life! These products will include hats, T-shirts, and a 1000D Nylon Day Pack. 

Neverest Outfitters is:

1)  Forever Forward. Neverest Outfitters was created by and for individuals who live life to the fullest, people who live Forever Forward. We make products that we use in our daily lives and that allow people to embrace the adventure of life.   

2) Working with a Triple Bottom Line.  We run Neverest Outfitters with a triple bottom line meaning that every decision we make must take into account it's impact on the people, the planet and profit. We believe that holistically crafting premium outdoor goods and apparel in our Minnesota communities is an awesome way to do good for the environment and the public. 

3) Fairly Priced. Quality outdoor goods and apparel are usually several hundred dollars per product AND thats generally with cheap, environmentally damaging textiles and outsourced manufacturing. We are offering holistically produced, Made-in-Minnesota products at competitive prices. We can do this because we don't throw down buckets of money for big offices or retail locations, we cut out the middlemen and we operate on thinner profit margins. All of this is to make our goods affordable and available to as many awesome individuals as possible. 

The Story:

We are Neverest Outfitters (NRO) from the land of 10,000 lakes. NRO was started as an entrepreneurial venture by a team of alumni and students from Saint John’s University and the College of St. Benedict to combine a deep appreciation for beautiful design, quality goods and sustainable production. Since its 2013 founding, NRO has attracted a passionate team of individuals who are driven to create something greater than themselves. For us, NRO is much more than a producer of quality outdoor gear. We are a vibrant group of people who are sharing our vision of what is possible through the creation of outdoor items. We are growing a community of people who are passionate about life. People who value the brilliantly-simple complexity of nature. People who care about handcrafted goods that are built to last generations and that are produced in their local economy. People who understand that in order to live a soulful and enriching life we must be constantly striving towards greater connection with our communities and nature. 

Your Contribution: 

We have spent the last year planning, working with suppliers and prototyping the 2014 product line. With all of the pieces coming together we are thrilled to be approaching Kickstarter to officially launch this venture. We need your support in order to meet our minimum production mark of $10,000. By raising at least $10,000 on Kickstarter we will be able to scale up our production to market level and thus order certain quantities at lower prices.

Why Neverest Outfitters?

We strive to spark positive social and environmental change through the creation of high-quality, sustainable outdoor gear and apparel. By continuously improving our holistic production process we aim to constantly grow in a controlled manner and evolve as an industry-shaping organization.

We offer a more intentional product line with greater added­ value than our competitors. Through our commitment to intelligent sourcing of materials and our close connection to Minnesota communities we are a more local and more sustainable company. Additionally, because we are a smaller company with lower overheads we are able to respond more nimbly to changes in market demand, as well as offer lower prices by selling directly to our clients. It is our goal to become a Minnesota Public Benefit Corporation (B-Corp) in order to have our mission driven business style certified and recognized by the state.

Guarantee

 When you see the Neverest Outfitters logo you know that you’ve purchased a quality product manufactured by men & women who care just as much about our planet, and the well-being of the public, as you do. We guarantee that we will continue to move Forever Forward in order produce our products in an ever-more holistic manner.

Thank you for supporting Neverest Outfitters, and thank you for supporting our Forever Forward movement.
