If you're an avid sportsman, or woman, you thrive on stepping outside and challenging your way of thinking - you might be exactly what we're looking for.

How We Think

Creating and designing products that allow our customers to embrace the outdoors is what fuels us on the daily. We're a driven, dynamic and obsessively curios bunch of explorers, who thrive on providing our customers with world-class products.

Challenges energize us. If there's room for improvement, we'll be the first ones to put up our hand and say 'how can we solve this to benefit our customers'. It's this unwavering passion that sets us apart from the rest. We work hard, so we can play even harder.

A Day In The Office

- Lauren, First Ascent Designer

"It's a privilege to work with such a committed and loyal bunch of employees. Their energy, enthusiasm and willingness to continuously improve is what sets First Ascent apart from the rest."
