In the late 1700s an unknown French Explorer by the name of Lord Duplessis, a relative of Alpenlore founder; Scott Palmer; set out on an expediton to the Nordic Lapland of Scandinavia in search for the remains of an ancient civilization. The name of his Expedition Team was named Alpenlore . There is very little known regarding the details involved with Lord Duplessis and his Alpenlore team, but today the Alpenlore name has been revived and is focused on the ongoing development of adventure gear for the urban, mountain, and coastal journey of life.
The original Founder and CEO: Scott Palmer, is an American adventurer who while living and traveling in Europe, began visualizing a new generation of traditional product designs. After settling in Japan he began building Alpenlore.

Slatsmandu began back in 1999 made up of of a few guys buying Outdoor & Travel Products from across the country. We purchased bulk products of items with slight imperfections and last year models at super discounts and resold them internationally to customers in all corners of the globe. Eventually our resources started to run out and we began shifting gears towards a larger market.
Behind the scenes, Slatsmandu was shaping and honing its experience towards its own product line. With our extensive background working in the Climbing & Ski industry and working with Military equipment, we began to visualize and create unique products that concentrated not only on being light weight, but more of a focus on multi-function & Purpose.
After a trip to the Alps, a new inspiration surfaced that focused on Rescue, Survival & First-aid.
From a small workshop in Colorado we began experimenting with prototypes in a grand project that slowly began to surface in the outdoor community that crafted premium gear to the select few in the mountain regions of the United States.
The President, Scott Palmer, wanted to take a haitus back to the Alps to rediscover himself, his family roots and meditate on how to accomplish his mission in life. Traveling to over 17 countries, spending his time reflecting on his past and visualizing a future of doing what he cared about most, which was his great love for world travel and the passion to build his own Mountain Brand.
After his life changing experience across Europe he moved towards Japan where 70% of this country is mountains, beautiful mountains, and quite comparable to the great Rockies of America. There he fell in love with the culture and peaceful nature of the people and their respect for the environment and healthy way of life. He settled there and began work with his product designs and building his brand. Today Alpenlore is a success because of determination and never giving up.
As of present, Alpenlore is reaching into all corners of the globe, providing Mountain Safety Products for Adventurerers & World Travelers alike.
