One of the great assets to being in your 30’s is that suddenly talented friends seem to find their way. The 30’s are a time to get shit done instead of dreaming and playing and struggling with no end in site like the 20’s often feel like. Well, that’s not to say that the 30’s are a time to stop playing and dreaming, but it is a time when you can also start your own company that makes stuff to keep everyone else in the world dreaming, adventuring, laughing outloud, and staying warm and dry in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
My friend, Benji Wagner, an already multi-talented photographer and filmmaker is guilty of stepping up his 30’s for the benefit of mankind and creating something great called POLER STUFF. Poler is a heat bag company, a camping gear brand, and creator of a snuggie-like sleeping bag that I’m wearing right now as I type out this blog post. I’m a skateboarder, snowboarder, crappy surfer, and I like the woods… Poler is the dream merger of simplicity, style and practicality in a gear brand that embodies this lifestyle.
I’ve got some incredible journeys coming up in the next year and proudly rocking Poler along the way and will be contributing to their beautiful adventure series. I’m now on the Poler team, a childhood sponsorship dream come true! Enough of the propaganda, just check out the Poler Stuff site, and the visually inspiring Poler Blog and support small business this year when searching for Christmas gifts for your loved ones. Oh, and here’s a nice video to get you in the mood.
