True North Celebrates 20 Years of Innovation with Monthly Giveaway
Seattle, WA — True North is giving away one featured product as part of their 20 Year Anniversary Contest. The giveaway encourages entrants to tell how True North Gear or DragonWear has influenced the wearer’s life. One winner will be picked per month.
True North® began as one person working in a garage who wanted to make a better pack. Two decades later True North is still a family owned and operated company which has grown from a one-person operation in a garage to an ISO 9001:2008 registered company whose products are distributed worldwide. Over two decades the one thing that hasn't changed is our passion for creating better ways to help people be more comfortable and safer doing what they do.
In addition to the recreational backpacks we started with we now make bags for firefighters and SAR teams, and our products now include a broad range of fire resistant clothing under the DragonWear™ label. Along the way our innovation has racked up a string of patents and design awards, but what really matters is the feedback we get from end users you like you. Your vote is the one that really counts. Though we've grown, our headquarters are still in Seattle, Washington just up the street from the garage where we started.
From the beginning our philosophy has been to provide innovative products at competitive prices, then back them up with a lifetime warranty and great customer service. It's not rocket science, just treating people the way we want to be treated.
