Our Story

colorful kea peak visors in progress at sewing machine

Pronounced "Kia Peak", but that would be South Korea's line of tiny mountain cars. 

 The Kea is the only alpine parrot in the world, located in New Zealand, where our company founder fell in love with the best guy ever. It also laughs in groups and tears up whatever it can get its beak on, like boots, backpacks, and cars. It seemed like an appropriate mascot.
 

our start

"There was a Tahoe trail race booked for the next day and a lost tennis visor (that I hated anyway). I cut the top off a tourist hat, balled up my signature half-a-head of curls, and claimed myself a trail race personal best and a new passion. With months of all-in development I created a visor that's more like a topless hat; all the style of the trucker and the perks of the visor. And the comfort level is off the charts." - Abby​
