The Royal Robbins Story
Liz and Royal Robbins are a remarkable couple who designed remarkable, innovative clothing. They followed a trail that began in Yosemite as climbing pioneers, and led to the creation of an exceptional outdoor & travel clothing line.
Royal Robbins made history books by being the first man to make his ascents on some of the world's most famous climbing routes, many in his favourite ‘playground' Yosemite. With his wife Liz they made ascents of difficult Yosemite climbs, taught skiing and climbing, and opened a climbing school. But the couple couldn't find the right clothing in which to explore, so in 1975 Liz decided to design her own
The success of these first designs evolved into a complete line of travel clothing, including shirts
, that they named Go Everywhere, reflecting their passion for traveling and exploring..
Royal Robbins continue to create practical clothing, rooted in the outdoors that is as much about style as performance. Built to ignite the passion for all outdoors, with the performance fabrics necessary in today's high adventure sporting lifestyle.
