The second in a series of profiles on companies that still manufacture equipment in either Australia or New Zealand.
Wilderness Wear makes a range of premium travel and outdoor technical clothing and raingear (baselayer, mid layer, socks, casual, travel and waterproof). They also have a ‘value brand’ called Three Peaks which produces clothing and footwear.
Wilderness Wear is a rarity amongst the Australian owned outdoor gear companies – they actually produce their products here. From the company: “Every part of Wilderness Wear is Australian. … all of our products are made in Australia. We see that as a significantly better prospect than outsourcing to less experienced labour forces in countries beyond our shores”.
