Outward Bound

outward hero image

In 2005 Kathmandu formed a community partnership with New Zealand’s Outward Bound, an outdoor education centre that inspires participants to challenge themselves and connect with the outdoors.

Outward Bound courses are renowned for extreme locations and challenging activities. Having gear that can withstand year-round use is crucial. Kathmandu works with Outward Bound to decide which products best suit their demanding trips into the wilderness – having the right tent and pack is critical.

Kathmandu and key Outward Bound staff have been working together to test and refine new technical products, including new sleeping bag designs, and ongoing testing of existing products. Kathmandu, in partnership with Outward Bound, developed the Anakiwa Sleeping Bag, which provides superior warmth in some of the harshest environments.

Each year Kathmandu offers four Outward Bound Scholarships to New Zealand residents only. For more information on Outward Bound courses, visit the Outward Bound website.

Kathmandu and Outward Bound NZ have been Partners since 2005. We sent our film crew along to join in on one of the courses and give you a behind the scenes look at Outward Bound and the awesome experiences they provide as a bridge for people to discover or enhance their connection with the outdoors.
