FLEAKIN' OUT WITH voormi

They pride themselves in not making disposable gear and focusing on creating hardworking, long lasting pieces that survive season after season.

Where do you find inspiration?
No doubt, our inspiration comes from the ski patrollers, guides, and other mountain professionals who wake up every day and go to work in our mountain communities. Not only do they represent the backbone of just about every small town here in Colorado, they also happen to be some of the most demanding and abusive consumers we have ever come across.
What's a day in your shoes like?
That’s hard to answer, as every day is so uniquely different in the life of a small company. Whether we’re laying out next season’s line, shooting photography for the catalog, designing the next generation of high performance textiles, or catching the morning after a storm cycle, it’s always a new adventure.
Where did you get your start?
Our journey started as a few guys in a snake-infested building on the outskirts of Pagosa Springs. Since that time, we’ve not only grown the team, but also invested in building our brand new micro-manufacturing and design center downtown. We’d love for you to drop in and see what we’re up to next time you’re rolling through!
What's your greatest accomplishment?
Living in a small community filled with outdoor professionals that rely on our clothing each and every day, the proudest moments often happen in the most unexpected places. Walking in to our local brewery and hearing about the difference our gear made that day, or getting photos from a far away basecamp is a pretty special thing. There’s nothing like the personal accountability that comes someone you have to see every day putting their hard earned money down on your gear.
