Teva Footwear, Nils Technical Apparel, & More

Hap­py Fri­day, Clym­bers. We trust you’ve got some excit­ing mis­sions planned for this week­end. Depend­ing on where in the coun­try you live, you will prob­a­bly encounter snow or spring rains out there. In the moun­tains through­out the cold and com­plete­ly rain-soaked Pacif­ic North­west, you will run into both. It’s appro­pri­ate, though com­plete­ly unplanned, that the brands on the dock­et for today are respec­tive­ly syn­ony­mous with water and snow. Have a look. It’ll put you in the mood for a great week­end spent outdoors.

Here’s a lit­tle more about today’s fea­tured brands:

Teva: In the begin­ning, the dri­ving mes­sage at Teva (pro­nounced TEH-vah, not Tee-vah) was footwear focused: “We play in the water, but we also see the need to be pro­tect­ed from it.” But as the world changed and Teva grew, the com­pa­ny adapt­ed its mes­sage to include, “We also need to pro­tect the water so that future gen­er­a­tions can play in it.” Teva now works with numer­ous non­prof­it con­ser­va­tion orga­ni­za­tions to help keep the world’s liq­uid play­grounds clean. In its A Pair for a Foot cam­paign, for every pair of Teva shoes sold, the com­pa­ny pro­tects a lin­ear foot of glob­al water­ways in rivers, lakes, and oceans. In 2012, the com­pa­ny will stew­ard some­thing in the neigh­bor­hood of 4.4 mil­lion lin­ear feet. That’s a lot of water—and it’s a great exam­ple of why we at The Clymb are proud to be a part of the out­door indus­try, where com­pa­nies like Teva see pro­tect­ing the nat­ur­al world as part of busi­ness as usu­al. Sup­port a great com­pa­ny and a great cause with Men’s and Women’s Teva footwear, on sale today on The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Nils: Fash­ion­able resort snowear with a glove-like fit and a focus on func­tion, Nils appar­el is as appro­pri­ate for the moun­tain as the après ski ren­dezvous after­ward. Sick of look­ing like the abom­inable snow­man on the slopes? With Nil­s’s leg­endary sleek fit, bulky tech­ni­cal win­ter appar­el is a thing of the past. Whether turn­ing heads on the hill or in the lodge, noth­ing says pow­er, sex appeal, and peak per­for­mance like Nils. Com­mit to look­ing bet­ter on the slopes with Wom­en’s Nils tech­ni­cal appar­el, on sale today at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

PLUS… There’s still time to save on Timex, Cross, Loopt­works, KAVU, COAL, Uclear, MPG, & DannyShane.

San­dals: Did you know? Teva (pro­nounced TEH-vah, not Tee-vah, in case you missed it above) is the Hebrew word for nature. Mark Thatch­er invent­ed the Teva “amphibi­ous util­i­ty san­dals” in 1982 after decid­ing that his flip-flops did­n’t cut it dur­ing his work as a riv­er raft­ing guide.
