Dave Schipper

David Schipper first showed a penchant for design by making his own outdoor gear in grade school. Much time was spent testing his products amongst the forests and streams of his Michigan upbringing as outdoor adventure became a large part of his life, and by college his projects grew to perform functionally.  The next three decades were a delicate balance between professional experience and adventurous pursuits racing triathalons, mountaineering, and testing the waters from rowing the Grand Canyon to paddling across Lake Michigan. Some highlights were the opportunities to race triathlons under the coaching of Dave Scott, race bikes with Levi Liepheimer, summit Denali, and attempt the Cesen Route on K2. Professionally Dave has worked the full spectrum of outdoor industry positions from product design to executive management to Asian sourcing. Today, his focus is running Outdoor Labs, in Moab, UT,  when he’s not pursuing the next adventure.
