Chosta was founded in Vancouver, Canada by myself, Scott Phelan and my partner, Heather Corbett. Although Vancouver is our home, the Pacific Northwest is our playground. In 2017 we were preparing for a kayak trip and hastily purchased some camping stools along with our other supplies. To our dismay, all three of the stools broke during our trip. We knew cheaply made products had been a long-standing concern in the outdoor goods industry and with broken plastic and ripped nylon in our hands, we felt like we were becoming part of the problem.
We continued to explore the Pacific Northwest and encountered cheap camping gear along the way. We thought, if people cared half as much about their gear as they did about the beautiful places they were exploring, then maybe we would see less gear destined for the landfill.
