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 is our second brand that we introduced featuring camp furniture, hunting stools and packs in camouflage patterns. We recognized that there is a market for quality gear when you're hunting, just like there is when you're camping or backpacking. We've extended our knowledge gained from making and selling technical ALPS Mountaineering packs that are loaded with features and furniture that is sturdier, wider, and more comfortable into our ALPS OutdoorZ line.
ALPS became the licensee of Browning Camping in 2009. Browning uses the phrase "The Best There Is" and we believe we offer "The Best There Is" in tents, sleeping bags, air pads, and furniture. We know when you're away from home hunting, 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.
Cedar Ridge is the most recent brand addition for ALPS. We created the Cedar Ridge line 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 3 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.
