Established in 1946 in Boulder, Colorado, Holubar Mountaineering was founded by Roy and Alice Holubar, and began with the design, manufacturing and selling of outdoor equipment and soft-gear such as down-insulated sleeping bags. Throughout the second half of the 20th century the brand grew in popularity and today stands as one of the premier heritage outerwear companies.
Their most iconic silhouette is The Deer Hunter, a jacket made famous by Robert De Niro’s outfit in Michael Cimino’s film of the same name. To this day, the DH in ‘Dark Orange’ is a heritage classic, and we’ve also collected a range of other colours, some hefty flannel shirts and their Boulder Parka, designed for seriously cold weather.
It’s getting a bit poky in the elements now as we move through November. Prime time for some massive jackets to get introduced to the Lake District. You should introduce the Deer Hunter to where you live, as well.
