Sherpa owned, Sherpa led and Sherpa inspired, this is a small brand with a big heart. Founded in 2003 in Kathmandu by Tashi Sherpa, himself from a family of tailors, and originally focussed on providing decent gear for the many Sherpa porters and guides operating out of the foothills surrounding Nepal's capital.
At The Epicentre, you will find a great range of Men and Women's clothing and accessories from Sherpa.
Sherpa Gear has since grown to encompass all aspects of the mountain experience, from top end down jackets and waterproof shell products to stylish lifestyle pieces to suit every day of your outdoor life.
Not only do Sherpa produce high quality, great value and stylish outdoor gear, they also work to create a better life for its workers and their families. In 2011, Sherpa Gear founded the Paldorje Foundation which supports Nepalese children through education and ensures they are able to study full-time and gain the qualifications that will not only give them a brighter future but also their families. A donation to the Paldorje Foundation is made for every piece of Sherpa clothing bought.
Sherpa Adventure Gear also understand the importance of working to preserve the natural environment that we all enjoy so much.
