In other news…
Mountain Hop: Did you know? Like all things curious and awesome, the Brooks-Range rabbit logo was inspired by a chance encounter with a stranger from the East. The story behind it goes a little something like this: Founder Matt Brooks was climbing alongside a Russian, looking to make conversation, when he noticed his mountain compatriot was wearing a rabbit pin. Either out of confusion or as a token of friendship, the Russian climber ended up giving him the pin. Later, back at the office, the Brooks-Range team decided to feature the pin on some product as a lark. The inside joke turned into a marketing win however, as customers became attached, some going so far as to call in and express their concerns over rumors that the company might pull it. The folks at Brooks-Range laughed and shrugged their shoulders and the rabbit became the new face of the company. That a funky trinket that passed hands on a mountain could come to represent a major company by happenstance is just another reason why the outdoor industry is awesome.
