Sites We Like

We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite websites for your reference in hopes that they’ll be a launching point for learning, service, new experiences and global community building. The outdoor industry is an inspiringly connected, global network, no doubt due to the core passion that brings us all together in this work: our love for the outdoors. Our product is made to suit anyone looking for superior comfort and a better outdoor experience, and we at Keela have a special affinity for groups who spend lots of time outdoors, living and working in the elements our jackets seek to protect them from. We hope you’ll enjoy these sites and check back for updates to this list!
