What is the Summit Club Adventure Sponsorship Program?
At Kathmandu, we aim to inspire and equip the adventurer in all of us.
By providing you with Kathmandu gear – from clothes and shoes right through to bags and accessories – an Adventure Sponsorship helps you to challenge yourself to an outdoor adventure or project that has a positive impact.
Our documentary series, Finding Frontiers, tells the stories of those who live and breathe purpose-driven adventure – from one man’s crossing of Greenland’s vast ice cap by foot to the youngest woman to have run the 4 Deserts Grand Slam. Take a glimpse into their worlds and find inspiration for your next adventure.
