Introducing The Discovery Division Grundéns Jacket

When we started to think about making a rain jacket for our new Discovery Division, the first company that came to mind was Grundéns.

Coldwater Edits Volume VI

Continuing on from our previous week's Coldwater Edits series, we're following Dylan Graves's Weird Waves Series as he travels through Missoula, MT, through Idaho, and ending in Bend, Oregon to surf some pretty fun looking river waves.
