OUR STORY

A soon-to-be classic Canadian tale

OUR STORY

My husband and I have a deep love of exploring the outdoors - a desire to always explore around the next bend and over the next hill. Much of our family life is spent planning upcoming adventures, whether it’s re-visiting our favourite Northern Ontario retreats, or stumbling upon lesser travelled places around the world. In all our travels, one thing remains constant: our gear. We take the same types of coolers, bottles and packs with us each time, but have never found anything we truly love using. Other outdoor companies simply didn’t suit our needs, didn’t suit our wallets, and really just didn’t reflect our (for lack of a better word) “Canadian-ness”.

Our hard-working European parents instilled in us the value of investing in high-quality, long-lasting gear, pieces that should last you a lifetime. Yet we also believe that high-quality gear doesn’t have to come with a sky-high price tag. We want outdoor gear that is well-made, durable, functional and with a true Canadian feel.

Thus Chilly Moose was born! We are excited to introduce the world to exceptional outdoor coolers, drink ware and gear. This classically Canadian collection is meticulously curated for discerning outdoor adventure seekers, and also for cottagers, day-trippers, jet-setters, fitness enthusiasts, busy parents, downtown commuters, students and beyond.

Your next adventure awaits! Grab your Chilly Moose and bring a little piece of the Canadian outdoors everywhere you go.

PROTECTING OUR PARKS

We have a road trip tradition in our little family. It consists of driving 3+ hours into our beloved Algonquin Park, in Northern Ontario. Even if it’s just for the day. The kids have their go-to spots, we have our favourite hikes, campgrounds and our treasured rustic getaway resorts that seem to take you back in time. We keep a mental list of all the Canadian and Provincial Parks we’ve visited over the years, and ones we dream of seeing (Gros Morne, we’re coming for you!)

Our love of protected Parks, the outdoors, and easy access to clean water fuels our desire to fiercely protect them all. We have never been a “buy and toss” family - reusing and recycling are natural habits for us and our children. Our efforts to stop the cycle of plastic pollution was a driving force behind developing the company.

Chilly Moose products are designed to last as long as you do. Purchasing reusable drinkware is one small but impactful act that you can make to help combat the world’s dependency on single-use plastics. You can help reduce your impact on our fragile planet by reusing our products for a lifetime.

We are committed to teaching our children responsible living, as well as leaving them a planet with clean, fresh water and protected untouched environments. Chilly Moose is proud to give a portion of annual sales to Parks Canada and Ontario Parks, to help continue their efforts in protecting important Canadian eco-systems and educating future generations.

On behalf of Chilly Moose, thank you for your support and for being part of the change!
