Kurt Gray is maybe just a little too geeky about technical apparel. Just ask his friends. He started out in outdoor specialty retail before moving over to product and chasing design and development for a number of outdoor suppliers and brands.

His work includes being on the design teams for both the Guide de’ Chamonix and Rainer Mountain Guides uniform programs, as well as the Protective Combat Uniform for SOCOM. Gray has designed apparel (and sometimes gloves) for: Lowe alpine, The North Face, Helly Hansen, Carhartt, Fila, Cabelas, 3M, Kelty, Salomon, Sierra Designs, Wrangler, et al..

His current focus is the product for the American made and sourced brand, Jagged Edge Mountain Gear which is headquartered in Telluride Colorado. He also writes a trend and short story column for Textile Insight magazine. If you can’t find him, he’s usually in the Broomfield shop, trying to get his notches to line up.
