Passion from Scotland
Highlander was founded in the 1980s, when exploring nature was still considered privileged. The people of Highlander believed that the challenges and beauty of nature should be accessible to everyone.
Over the years, this ethos has become the guiding principle of the Highlander brand, as developers continually strive to create clothing and equipment that allows everyone to explore the world in their own way. 3 years later, this ever-growing passion and commitment to making gear has made Highlander the brand it is today.
Highlander is a company founded by outdoor enthusiasts for outdoor enthusiasts.
The founder, Bahram Golzari, has always had a strong love for exploring the Scottish mountains, which he and his family have maintained to this day. All staff have a deep and abiding love of nature, which we pursue in our own ways - be it mountain biking through the forests, hiking to a remote canyon to wild camp, or in the oceans and rivers of Scotland surf, swim and paddle.
This passion is also reflected in their work, as Highlander designs the products they want to use on such adventures. As soon as a new sample arrives, an eager employee claims it for a practical test during his weekend adventures.
