Royal Robbins is an internationally acclaimed climber and kayaker who, with his wife and partner Liz, founded this outdoor clothing company over 30 years ago. Together they tackled ground-breaking ascents of difficult Yosemite climbs, taught skiing and climbing, and opened a climbing school. But the couple couldn't find the right clothing in which to explore, so in 1975 Liz decided to design her own. Her creation was the Billy Goat Hiking Short.
Today, Royal Robbins is a wildly enthusiastic, customer-oriented Team guided by the principles of integrity, service, fair play, and fueled by a passion for adventure. Their goal is to do what they do best, create practical outdoor clothing, with the performance fabrics necessary in today's high adventure sporting lifestyle.
