Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

San Francisco, CA – March 25, 2015 —Alite Designs, an outdoor gear company based in San Francisco, is proud to announce the launch of the Fresh Air Club, created to motivate and inspire urbaneers to take part in accessible outdoor adventures. With an abundance of unique spaces and places in the Bay Area, Alite has compiled a list of local outdoor activities as well as group events this spring and summer for club members, as well as numerous campsite giveaways, product discounts and Alite schwag as encouragement for participation.


A Fresh Air Club newsletter will keep club members in the loop on upcoming events and promotions at The Alite Outpost. Rewards for this year are based around Bay Area members, but membership in other states is encouraged, as the program is expected to expand nationwide next year.

“The focus of FAC is based on three main concepts: design, inform and inspire, “ said Alite Designs Cofounder and Creative Director Tae Kim. “It’s been my ultimate goal to create a company that not only designs useful products, but also provides education on how to use them and spend more time outside while doing so. We design outdoor gear and opened The Alite Outpost for education, and now FAC which will bring it all together by inspiring folks to get outdoors and explore.”

The Fresh Air Club will kick off with a party on April 2, 2015 at The Alite Outpost. For more information and to sign-up to be a club member visit:
