What is Fortress Clothing?
Fortress Clothing, quite simply, actually keeps you warm in cold weather, even if you are wet. Dozens of others claim to "keep you warm in cold weather," but Fortress is different. We actually do it. We eliminate the need for bulky layers, which lead to excessive sweating followed by then being cold AND wet. Our patented technology keeps your body the perfect temperature WITHOUT layers. No sweat.
Who are our customers?
We passionately strive to serve and solve problems for those who work, play and enjoy activities that expose them to the elements found in the outdoors, by delivering innovation, quality and value in our goods and services. Our customers are as varied as the fish in the sea. We serve the paragliding community, allowing you to enjoy the sport you love without the constraints of layers and the discomfort of wind chill.
We outfit hunters and fly-fisherman. We keep the guys working the oil fields in North Dakota warm. Our cold weather clothing allows the skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, and other winter sports enthusiasts warm without cumbersome bulk.
