Royal Robbins

Here at 53 Degrees North we are seriously proud of our Royal Robbins collection.

Liz and Royal Robbins are a remarkable couple who designed remarkable, innovative clothing. They followed a trail that began in Yosemite as climbing pioneers, and led to the creation of an exceptional outdoor & travel clothing line. Royal Robbins is an internationally acclaimed climber and kayaker who, with his wife and partner Liz, founded this outdoor clothing company over 30 years ago. Together they tackled ground-breaking (no pun intended!) ascents of difficult Yosemite climbs, taught skiing and climbing, and opened a climbing school. But the couple couldn't find the right clothing in which to explore, so in 1975 Liz decided to design her own.
