Forty Below Ltd was founded in the 1970′s, based on the serious need to have effective foot protection in extreme cold environments. The company founder, Bill Lokey of Tacoma, WA, built his first insulated boot covers, called overboots in 1973. After his experience of several years in Antarctica and numerous expeditions around the world, he developed the original Forty Below® Mt. Everest™ model overboot, which became known and trusted in the worldwide mountaineering community. The picture on the home page is of Bill Lokey on Karsten’s Ridge of Denali in 1980.
Today, with over 30 years of experience, the Forty Below® line of products continue to be trusted and used on the most challenging of cold weather expeditions. Our goal is to provide functional insulative products for extreme environments.
We also make Forty Below® Brand insulated covers for bottles, specialized clothing, and a line of Forty Below® insulated covers for brewing products. All of our products are carefully designed, and proudly crafted in the U.S.A.
We take pride in helping you achieve your goals, and look forward to helping you match up our products with your activities! You can call, write, or email us for information.
