Gobi Gear

Gobi Gear was founded by an outdoor adventurist, just before her first trip to Nepal in 2009. Being tired of chaos in her backpack, while camping, traveling, going to the gym, home for the holidays, and so on, she decided to do something about it. One compartment wasn’t good enough. She wanted organization and the ability to compress all the items – just like a sleeping bag stuff sack.

Cloudline was inspired by that feeling you get after spending hours hiking under an overcast sky, when you finally climb high enough to break through the clouds and see the blue sky above. Your legs burn, your heart is thumping, your breath is short, but as you look out across the open valley, now clear and open above the cloud line, you get a sensation of chills down your spine and a grin grows across your face as you realize that it was worth the climb. This is the feeling we want you to experience as you pull your feet into our merino wool hiking socks. That feeling is what we strive for every day. We want you to experience the CloudLine.
