About Roscoe Outdoor

We have a passion for creating comfortable, functional outerwear that holds up to the abrasion and stress of hard mountain use. Every garment style is thoroughly tested in the glacier-carved mountains surrounding Red Lodge, Montana. Climbing inspired our rugged, durable designs, but good outdoor pants are appreciated by everyone. Our pants are worn by hunting guides in Alaska, adventurers trekking in the Himalayas, talented climbers sending new routes, and anyone who spends time outside, even if it’s only a bike commute to work.

Our independent, self-funded approach enables us to apply new, unbiased ideas to how outerwear should function and perform. Wear a pair of our pants or shorts outside and discover for yourself the benefits of outerwear created by a small, focused company comprised of individuals who design for the outdoor recreation they actively pursue.
