Grounded in innovation, driven by our passion for adventure
BlackStrap® develops mountain lifestyle gear for every outdoor adventure. From the winter slopes to waterways and the trails in between, our mission is to build unrivaled gear that protects you from the elements and keeps you active and comfortable longer. We aim to bring innovative products to market with a mindful approach that focuses on quality and reliability within our responsible supply chain.
On January 8th, 2008 Abe Shehadeh officially launched BlackStrap Industries Inc, a small collection of winter facemasks. What began as an idea to elevate Abe's experience on the mountain has evolved into a company with a mission to improve everyone's experience in the mountains. From 2008-2010, in true entrepreneurial spirit, Abe did what any founder would do: hit the pavement, pioneering the brand from mountain-to-mountain and shop-to-shop. As a result, what began in the beautiful town of Bend, Oregon has now grown into a full-fledged commitment to being a profound leader in the outdoor industry. To this day, BlackStrap continues to be independently owned and operated.
