Movers and Makers

When it comes to performance products, we have the inside line. We size up the best of what’s out there, very often making bets on small businesses run by women who are not only breaking the ceiling, but raising the roof and their voices too. They personally know what it takes to run hard, stand tall, climb high and go deep - and craft accordingly.

Sally Bergesen

Founder, Oiselle

When it comes to women, sports and clothes, there is no greater expert than our pal Sally Bergesen, the founder of Oiselle. Fed up with ad agency work and the state of women’s running apparel, Sally launched her own company in 2007. When she’s not taking her runway-inspired apparel to women runners, she is taking on the entrenched interests of Nike, the USATF and Madison Ave.

Conservationist, musician and protector of the wild. This wild woman merged her love of animals, the environment and art to create a business that donates up to 10% of sales to organizations that protect the Earth. We love her mission so much, it was a no brainer to carry her hats. Oldest piece of gear? Her 14 year old sleeping bag.

Owner/Creator, bronwen Jewelry

An Outward Bound instructor turned hand-crafted jeweler. Bronwen began making jewelry out of gortex thread and other materials scavenged from the repair room. Her jewelry, like the women who wear it, is feminine, fierce and made for adventure. And when she’s not riding roughshod over the demands of running a small business, she’s on her favorite ride: a cargo bike (with her 6 year old daughter as the cargo).

Jennifer Ferguson

founder & CEO, handful

shop handful gear

One encounter with Jennifer Ferguson is all it takes to understand her fiery passion for life. A group fitness instructor and busy mom of two young kids, Jennifer couldn't find a bra that could keep up. Named because she is quite the "handful" herself, Handful aims to help women prioritize themselves and their "happy-active" life. Their sports bras are designed by women who have thought of all the details. And, they offer extra support to breast cancer survivors through their Breast Friends Forever program. They've got our backs–and most definitely, our fronts.

Sensi Graves

Founder, Sensi Graves Swimwear

shop sensi swimwear

The only thing that slays harder than Sensi Graves herself may very well be her swimsuit. A professional kiteboarder who lives in bikinis, she designed herself a suit that could live up to her expectations. And, they’re all tested by real women in motion, because “life is too short to worry about your bikini.”
