Raised in Alaska, Tae Kim started Boreas Gear in San Francisco in 2010. While in Alaska Kim spent the majority of his time outside in nature, fishing, camping and skiing. With his passion for the outdoors, Kim left Alaska for school, where he combined his love for the outdoors and designing. For 7 years he was the design director for the North Face, where he gained the knowledge and ability to begin Boreas. As a small independent outdoor gear company, Boreas crafts functional products to explore the California landscape and beyond. The best designs happen over time from testing and concentration, something that is able to be done outside of a large outdoor company. Boreas offers clean, simple products developed by designers with experience from The North Face, Eddie Bauer/First Ascent and Jeremy Jones. Offering tents, camping gear and outdoor clothing, Boreas is committed to maintaining beautiful, long lasting, practical everyday outdoor gear.
