AETHER (pronounced “ē-ther”) was started with the idea of creating technical pieces that focus on where form meets function—performance outerwear for a fashion-minded clientele. 

AETHER makes men's and women's technical clothing with a modern aesthetic, defined by flattering fits, clean lines, classic silhouettes and serious functionality. 

AETHER has store locations in Aspen, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.

Modern Hiker 

is Southern California’s oldest and most-read hiking blog. It provides free trail write-ups and detailed information on hundreds of trails for Los Angeles, Southern California, and beyond. Better than any hiking guide, these write-ups give you directions to the trailhead, photos and videos of the trails, GPX files for your GPS device, and Google Earth files so you can do some at-home 3D reconnaissance before you make your way to the trailhead. Modern Hiker also highlights gear reviews, narrative outdoor writing, volunteer opportunities, and relevant news


Sea to Summit Productions is dedicated to creating digital media for the modern adventurer.
