Growing up as the youngest son of two ski shop workers, it’ll come as no surprise that I’m an avid skier. With the scrabble slopes of Stowe, Vermont as my backyard, I soon came to love all outdoor activities, and you can only imagine what the closets at our house looked like. Even to this day I still bring friends home to deck them out for whatever outdoor adventure may come our way.
This past winter while I was doling out the usual flurry of jackets, pants and mitts, a friend who had shown up to Vermont in the dead of winter wearing nothing but sneakers and jeans said, “I feel like a pro! This is awesome. You should charge for this.”
And thus Kit Lender was born.
If you don’t have access to high quality winter clothes, activities like skiing and snowboarding can be off putting. You can rent passable gear from just about anywhere, but I find when you’re fully kitted out in the best pieces skiing and snowboarding are just a lot more fun. Whether you’re a novice or were raised on the slopes, our goal at Kit Lender is to bring you the same gear the pros use, without cleaning out your wallet. So on your next adventure, remember you’re not out until you’re kitted out.
