The Wise River Story
We Make Outdoor Gear That's Kind To The Outdoors

Why We Do What We Do.

At Wise River, we like to think we’re a lot like you. We know you work hard during the week, and then unwind by getting out and doing what you love. These pursuits take us to incredible places… increasingly fragile, vulnerable places. As an outdoor lifestyle brand, we believe it is our responsibility to preserve what is most important to us. With this idea in mind, we have made it our mission to merge the notions of sustainability and versatility in all of the gear we create.

How We Do It:

We start by carefully selecting the world’s most innovative eco-friendly fabrics, based on their environmental impact and the natural performance features that they contain. Then, we cut them into classic, clean styles to keep you comfortable and looking sharp through all phases of your day. This approach enables you to get more out of your clothing, while ultimately lessening its impact on your surroundings. At Wise River, we’ve got you covered, no matter where your day takes you.


It is our mission to support an ever-growing community that spreads awareness, influences action, and encourages one another to seek out new experiences. With that in mind, we are committed to an exclusive focus on sustainable, ethically sourced materials that achieve the perfect blend of style and performance (like when old fishing nets are turned into jackets). At Wise River, we create thoughtful, responsibly made products to get you where you’re going, no matter the destination.


We’re fortunate to be able to call sunny Denver, Colorado our home. With the distinguished Rocky Mountains as our backdrop, we feel that the ethos of our products is captured through the distinct, but mutually rugged environments that we test them in.

Gear That Gives Back

You may hear us use the phrase “preserve what you love” pretty often over here, and that’s because it’s as important to us as it is to you. Through our partnership with 1% For The Planet, we have pledged to sponsor American Rivers in their mission to protect and restore our nation’s waterways.

American Rivers protects wild rivers, restores damaged rivers and conserves clean water for people and nature.

Nick SciubbaFounder & CEO

Nick is a 13 year veteran of the apparel industry, and has worked for some of the largest outfitters in the world.

As a gritty Supply Chain professional, Nick quickly realized that traditional industry practices were major contributors to pollution and detrimental to the environment.

As such, Nick set out to do things a different way.

Nick founded Wise River on the premise that Outdoor- inspired gear should be kind to the outdoors. He looks at Wise River as more than an apparel company, but a movement to spread awareness, inspire action, and build community based on the idea that your gear can be a vehicle for positive impact. Nick’s vision is ultimately that by blending the notions of sustainability and versatility into every Wise River product, you will be able to get more out of your clothing, while lessening its impact on your surroundings.
