About Weevil Outdoor Supply

Weevil Outdoor is a Family owned and operated lifestyle brand which combines it's unique sense of style with quality products and services to help inspire people to "Get Off the Couch and Go Outside!" 

THE BEGINNINGS. In 2010 Weevil Outdoor began as an idea between two longtime friends. Through the use of illustrations, clean design, and a passion for quality apparel, we set out to create clothing that showcased some of the diverse outdoor activities we love. Pulling from our interests in mountain biking, hiking, snowboarding, and climbing...Weevil Outdoor was born!

"Where does the company name Weevil come from?

Well, since there are many different species of weevils that exist in the world (each with their own niche') and we share a passion for many different outdoor activities, the name "Weevil" felt like a perfect fit!

Fun fact ! We offer a variety of customizable products for both small and large businesses which helps connect us even more to the communities we love. Check out our custom program today and don't forget to ask about our "Give to Shred" program for non-profits. 

Weevil's unique take on the outdoors can be found coast to coast as the grass roots effort of friends and fans continues to spread the motto...


We hope you enjoy what we do.
