What it Means to Be Kahtoola
Every day the Kahtoola team walks into our Flagstaff, Arizona offices, winter becomes less of an obstacle and more of a destination. We’re fortunate to have built a team of people, from designers and craftsman to marketing and sales, that is dedicated to nothing other than exceeding your – and our own – expectations. Nearly every one of our products is designed and developed in-house, but we take it one step further – a large portion of our production is also kept in-house as well. That means virtually everything with the Kahtoola name that’s lucky enough to hang in your gear closet has been touched by us. We are our own product testers. We get our best ideas during field trials and feedback from our customers. Great people making great products isn’t something you can outsource, so we hope you won’t mind that we keep Kahtoola at Kahtoola.
