Carolyn Allen is....

a soft goods designer, backpack nerd, and part time adrenaline seeker

Their capstone seeks to optimize efficiency and functionality for gear used during a guided heli-skiing experience. Their two backpacks and technical jacket combine elements of resort skiing gear, as well as backpacking gear to cater specifically to the underserved market of heli-skiers.

They have worked at Lands’ End, Statum Designs, Wolverine Worldwide (Merrell), Hexhead Design, and Deckers Outdoor.

"I never want to see someone shy away from doing what they love, simply because they don't have the right gear. When my gear doesn't perform the way I need it to, I gather the right tools and skills to fix the problem."
