The Story Behind Sherpa Adventure Gear and its CEO Tashi Sherpa
You may well have heard of Sherpa Adventure Gear – a brand that produces well-made, technical mountain outdoor gear – but do you know anything about the man behind it all?
Tashi Sherpa is his name and after meeting him at a press launch we knew straight away that he is humble and conscientious man with a real desire and passion for his work.
Since founding the company in 2003, Tashi has taken the brand to new levels not only by selling a ton of outdoor gear, but more importantly – something he can’t stress enough – by directly helping the thousands of Nepalese people affected by poverty and natural disaster.
Rarely in this capitalist, money-driven world do you find a company that directly donates to a great cause with every product sold, and still maintains a strong sense of heritage while battling to keep up with modern demands, but this is exactly what Sherpa Adventure Gear has done.
When we went to see Tashi telling the brand’s story, he showed ambition that was almost palpable but with a sense of great humility too, which really echoed the brand’s ethos. With Tashi’s leadership we’re sure the brand will continue to help thousands in Nepal and give UK outdoor people something great to wear on the hills.
