On Saturday, April 18th, in celebration of our new spring arrivals we hosted our first Camp Season Kickoff at AETHERsf in Hayes Valley along with two of our favorite San Francisco outdoor brands, Oru Kayak and Boreas Gear.

Casey’s Pizza was on hand and the Fort Point beer was flowing, but in true camp form it wasn’t until the sun went down and the fires were lit that the real party began.

The San Francisco fog rolled in hard and folks were soon grabbing their Aether jackets to stay warm. And thanks to our friends at Snow Peak who sent us their Pack & Carry fire pits we were able to construct a few small fires to keep everyone warm throughout the evening.

Lastly the night ended with a raffle to support a great organization, Big City Mountaineers. Together we raised over $600 for their cause. Grand prizes included an Oru Kayak, Boreas Trava tent, and an Aether Apparel Shelter Jacket. Special thank you to all the other local brands who donated prizes for the raffle: Ritual Coffee, Streets of SF, BasicTrainingSF, Alternative Apparel, Khordz Mugs, Public Bikes, and the Juice Shop.
