While Snow Peak offers the finest in high end, design-centric outdoor wares, Portland's own Poler makes affordable outdoor "stuff" for anyone looking to get out and enjoy the great wilds of nature. With an official goal of sharing "camp vibes," the brand is all about good times, and this comes through in their playful aesthetic and brand identity inspired in part by skate and snowboard culture. Sure, Poler won't get you to the top of Mt. Ranier, but with clever designs like the Napsack—complete with a synch bottom, hood and zippered arm holes—you'll be so comfortable by the campfire you won't want to go anywhere.
The flagship store is located just a few doors down from Tanner Goods on the north/south dividing street of W. Burnside. Inside you'll find all the brand's well-designed wares alongside some local art and illustrations by fellow Portlander and outdoorsman Aaron Draplin.
