Founded in the Pacific Northwest, KAVU (www.kavu.com) has been committed to creating clothing and accessories for people to live life to the fullest since it delivered its first hat in 1994. KAVU derives its name from the aviation acronym CAVU or “clear above visibility unlimited”, which has been the company’s guiding principle.

KAVU’s product line began with a simple Strapcap that became a mainstay among river guides and backcountry enthusiasts. KAVU’s collection has grown to include men’s and women’s outerwear and sportswear and a Made in America capsule of shirts, fleeces, and hats. In the last several season the brand’s packs and bags have become extremely popular due to their fun and colorful designs and innovative climbing rope straps.
