Kulkea Our Roots - Vintage Picture of the Finnish Family

Our Roots

Kulkea was founded in 2009 by two New Englanders with a passion for the outdoors and travel.  Raised by a Finnish mother who survived the Winter War to venture the world, they learned the artistry of details, the value of perseverance and to eat-sleep-breathe adventure.  Their heritage is to experience life to the fullest.

Kulkea was born when they saw a need to solve the shortcomings of traditional outdoor gear bags. Their pioneering prototype quickly became the go-to for avid skiers. From that moment through today Kulkea stands for a renewed heritage of cleverly designed, premium gear bags that last for your adventure lifetime.

We are named Kulkea (cool-kee-ah), the Finnish word meaning “to go and travel.” Our goal is to free the adventurous spirit within all of us.
