Made in Canada



Matt Ediger

Primary Occupation?


Ocean, Trees or Mountains?

Mountains, because there are usually trees on mountains. Plus the ocean frightens me.

Favorite trail snack?

Dried mangos. They are even better when they are dipped in dark chocolate.

Would you rather be too hot or too cold?

I’d way rather be too cold. It doesn’t take me long to work up some body heat, but trying to cool down in tropical temperatures? Impossible.

Who inspires you?

It sounds cheesy, but Kate and Timber inspire me so much. Just to be a better person on a day to day basis. Always keeping me in check.

Anything else you’d like to include?

The word adventurer gets thrown around so much these days. Lately I’ve been trying to remind myself how easy we have it. Not just on a day to day level, but in the wild. If you can even call it that anymore. We are gaining even more creature comforts as time passes that sometimes we spend more time looking through a screen at a landscape than with our own eyes. I feel hypocritical for saying it, because I am as guilty as anybody else. But the next time you are headed out in the wild, and you forgot that critical piece of gear, don’t double back for it. Step back in time, and pretend like it doesn’t even exist yet.

What is your favourite piece of Westcomb gear?

The Switch Hoody period. That thing is the best!

Thanks Matt!
