MONTANE® Announces New Sales and Distribution for U.S. Market

Northumberland, UK — (December 1st, 2016) — MONTANE®, a leading UK- based technical apparel brand for over twenty years, announced today that Neskowin Outdoor, Inc. of Portland, Oregon will direct sales and distribution management for Montane branded products in the USA, commencing Spring / Summer 2017.

“We are very excited to work with Neskowin Outdoor – a proven and high quality distributor of outdoor soft goods – as part of the next phase in our development,” says Jake Doxat, founder and CEO of Montane. “Working with Sport Hansa over the past five years has provided us with a great transition from a small group of pure specialty retailers into a wider outdoor platform across the U.S., and we look forward to building on that strong momentum in the months to come.”

Working alongside Neskowin Outdoor, Montane will exhibit at the upcoming 2017 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market to debut the brand’s Fall / Winter 2017 line of technical gear and apparel.

“We’re honored to work with Montane, a pioneer and clear global leader in the lightweight, high performance apparel and gear movement,” notes Walt Crate, principal of Neskowin Outdoor. “Montane’s brand ethic – ‘Further. Faster.’ – is evident in their award winning trail running, fast hike/packing, and mountaineering collections. Montane’s investment longevity in the U.S. market and dedication to driving value to its U.S. specialty retailer base and to the end consumer with well-priced, meaningful innovation is very impressive. Our team is looking forward to showing off Montane’s new FW2017 kit at Outdoor Retailer!”
