ALPS Mountaineering was started in 1993 by Dennis Brune, who had 16 years of previous experience in the outdoor industry before starting ALPS. The products engineered by ALPS Mountaineering are designed with knowledge, by people like Dennis, who have been creating, testing and selling backpacking and camping products for more than a quarter of a century.
ALPS OutdoorZ was introduced in 2007 to offer quality gear for the hunting market. Armed with the technical knowledge gained by designing packs and furniture for ALPS Mountaineering, we were able to create a sturdier, more comfortable line of hunting gear with ALPS OutdoorZ.
Cedar Ridge was created to help you save even more money for your camping budget. By still choosing popular designs made with good materials, we're able to offer prices that are lower than what we offer with our other brands. Cedar Ridge can offer you your starter set of camping gear, with an easy-to-use tent, a warm sleeping bag and a comfortable chair.
ALPS became the licensee of Browning Camping in 2009. We adopted the Browning motto to create "The Best There Is" in tents, sleeping bags, air pads and camp furniture. We know when you're hunting away from home, you need your camping gear to be just as dependable as your gun or bow. All the specs found on Browning Camping products are going to be top-of-the-line.
In 2014, we became a licensee for Sports Afield Magazine's hunting pack line. Sports Afield Packs offers hunting packs and gun cases designed and field-tested by hunters, who have the practical experience required to create products with features and specifications that outdoor enthusiasts need.
