Be free and explore. It is a simple enough phrase, yet it has had a profound impact on my life ever since I left my job in September 2014. I have always enjoyed the outdoors, but lost that adventurous side while focusing on college baseball. It wasn't until two years ago when my brother invited me on a backpacking trip that I was reconnected with Mother Nature and all She has to offer.
There was only one problem. After researching companies online for outdoor apparel and checking out the local outdoor retailer in Cincinnati before the trip, I came to the conclusion that the cost for these products was too high. There had to be a better alternative to spending a small fortune on a fashionable tee or hat, there wasn’t. After two long years of purchasing overpriced merchandise, I decided to embark on a new journey. My hope is to provide quality, fashionable products with an outdoor inspired look and feel, at an affordable price.
As the name suggests, the Wicklow Mountains are the largest continuous mountain range in Ireland and having direct descendants from Ireland, I wanted to honor them by incorporating an Irish landmark into the name. I hope everyone enjoys the items we have to offer as much as we do!
