The Norwegians are a people that have always lived in harmony with nature. Being outside and enjoying nature, seeking stillness, and breathing in the clean air are part of the Norwegian soul. This is true despite our living in a rough and rugged country, in climes where most of the world would hardly consider the outdoors inviting.
Some people heed the call of the great outdoors more than others. Being on the move and living as one with nature is part of their identity. Many of these people opt for Devold. In turn, we have selected some of them to be our testers and ambassadors.
Devold has global ambassadors but in New Zealand we also have our own
We couldn’t be more proud to team up with @loganlore.official and @beljones_ and their beautiful family. With values that align with our own, along with an unmatched desire for adventure, they truly represent the essence of the Devold brand.
They are both pioneers in their work, explorers at heart and grounded by ethical and sustainable values. We are excited to see them take our gear to the mountains and beyond.
