When we started Valhalla Pure Outfitters in 1990 to make specialty outdoor clothing and gear, we didn't need to look to some exotic location on the far side of the planet. The rapid weather changes and punishing wear-and-tear of the Valhalla Range have taught us all we need to know about the requirements our gear would need. You can browse our selection of products available in all our stores and purchase online at vpo.ca, or you can check the availability of an item you are interested in, then head to your local shop to try it on.
