Jack Wolfskin

OUTDOOR IS OUR PASSION. Whether in the mountains, the wilderness, in faraway countries or in the countryside on your doorstep, Jack Wolfskin offers all the products you need to make you feel right at home in the great outdoors, whatever the weather. Founded in 1981, we have become one of the leading providers of functional outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment. LEAVE YOUR FOOTPRINT AT JACK WOLFSKIN. What does it take for a footprint? Right, a firm stand! And that is what we give to our employees because they are the ones that support our mutual success. Together we can stand out of the crowd as an innovative brand for the perfect outdoor gear. For this mission we need courageous climbers and thinkers with a keen sense for trends and comfort. We develop products for people who love being outdoors, who have fun getting exercise, reaching their goals and discovering new things, who appreciate the countryside and treat people and nature with respect. JW was founded in 1981 and since then has developed first-class, functional products on the basis of constant user feedback. With numerous patents and innovative, proprietary technologies, JW products currently lead the way in function, comfort and user benefits, and are now used all over the world.
