Northland professional

Quality outdoor fashion & equipment


Northland Professional is an Austrian family business, which is well known for producing high quality outdoor fashion & equipment for mountaineering enthusiasts. The company was founded 1973 by Gerwalt Pichler on the peak of the world’s coldest mountain, Mt McKinley.

Gerwalt was a passionate extreme mountaineer from a young age and at the age of 40 he decided to drop out of the working life as an engineer and dedicate himself to organizing professional expeditions across the world. He was seen as a pioneer as no one else has ever organised such trips in the 60’s. He had designed his own gear for the Mt. McKinley expedition and the poor less functional equipment that his clients used forced him to develop more professional clothing and equipment – and Northland was born.

The inspiration for the brand’s name came from New Zealand’s northern tip – NORTHLAND, the ideal outdoor paradise for numerous sportive activities: climbing, hiking, sailing, skiing, biking etc. Gerwalt Pichler had visited many a times as a teen and his enthusiasm for New Zealand is still alive.

In recent year the wants and standards of customers have changed. The outdoor world has become more fashion focused and even high-functional clothing has to be good looking. That’s why Northland Professional has dedicated his efforts towards the combination of high functional sportswear and modern fashion lifestyle.

Northland Professional has a strong ethical code for environmental and social responsibility. They respect and support the needs of workers in our suppliers’ factories, they obtain ecological standards through the whole production process, all materials come from clean sources, and no animals are harmed. They’re also working on taking the pressure off the factories by pursuing off-seasonal order cycles.
