Origin Story

Abode Outside is a clothing brand Inspired by the power of the great outdoors to forge memories that shape us.

The story of Abode Outside traces its origins back to family camping trips into the Boundary Waters Wilderness of Minnesota. It was deep in the woods, while hiking past a cascading waterfall, my dad stopped, took a deep breath of fresh air and quietly declared, “this is my sanctuary.”

That moment, and those adventures into the wilderness with my brothers, shaped who I am and sparked a passion for the outdoors that grew over the years. I became a wilderness first responder, studied sustainable clothing and eventually, with the help of family and friends, started Abode Outside, an eco-friendly clothing brand dedicated to nature.

We know you likely have similar memories fueled by the outdoors. A camping trip that connected you to something bigger, an awe-inspiring bike ride across the countryside, or a deep heart-to-heart with a loved one around a campfire.

We are here to protect those memories and the wild places that make them possible. Our mission is to use clothing as a tool to connect people with nature and help protect the wilderness - our favorite playground - for future generations.

-Nate, Founder, Abode Outside
