About Royal Robbins
Royal Robbins was founded in 1968 by one of the world’s greatest adventurers, Royal Robbins himself. Royal and his wife Liz started the company to provide high-quality clothing and gear for the outdoors. All items were inspired by the vast beauty and freedom of their outdoor experiences. Because they truly lived their lifestyle, there was no division between performance and casual items. All clothing would be both functional as well as stylish. Royal Robbins continues their commitment to create innovative outdoor apparel, with the performance and multi-function necessary for today’s high adventure lifestyle.
