Let's make outside
Level Playing field
When we take an honest look at the outdoor stories we tell and the heroes we typically herald, we as an industry are not championing women and men equally. Recognizing this, we proudly launched a public effort called Force of Nature. It claims the outdoors as a place to opt out of cultural pressures to conform—the "supposed-tos" and "shoulds" that underpin outdated stereotypes—especially for women. To make real change, we're offering more gear, classes, and events designed for women. But first and foremost we are putting women—of all ages, races, sizes, gender expressions—front and center in all we do.

Force of Nature Flyer
We transformed our usual product catalog into an amazing editorial piece focusing on thought provoking content, rich product and women-specific outdoor experiences that define, invite, and inspire women and girls to be a Force of Nature.
This direct mail piece achieved something special.
People across the country took pictures of it, quoted sections of it, and shared imagery from it across social media.
