The Kavu philosophy is all based upon building fun into everything you do. KAVU is also an aviation acronym for “clear above visibility unlimited,” when there isn’t a cloud in the sky and you can see to the horizon. KAVU is therefore not only a clothing company, but a philosophy and a lifestyle. KAVU creates true outdoor wear, stylish bags, wallets, and other accessories so you can express yourself and spread your good-time attitude.
KAVU was born in Seattle in 1993. Back then, founder Barry Barr was selling the revolutionary Strapcap out of his car. Now, it’s a straight-up classic and KAVU is Local Worldwide. After all these years, we’re still stoked by the spirit in which we were founded: buckling down, pitching in, getting our hands dirty, and creating gear we’re proud to wear and even prouder to share with you.
