Laura, an art teacher by day, has been hiking since she could walk. When not sculpting, painting or traveling, you’ll find her off the beaten path. On a hike, Laura connects with nature. She loves the feel, the sounds and the smells of the earth. Durable fabric is important to Laura because of the inevitable tumbles and falls that come with hiking, climbing and trail running. She needs her apparel and gear to be as durable as she is.
