About Alpine Innovations
We are passionate about the outdoors and enjoy building products that people need. We build our Ultra light Outdoor Gear at the base of the Wasatch mountain range near Alpine Utah. Alpine Canyon is in our back yard, so we named our company after it. Our outdoor products are designed to solve common problems with innovation and simplicity. We listen to our customers so that we can improve and introduce new products that optimize their outdoor experience. Our Slicker brand is an Ultra light line of products built for Optics, Scopes, Binoculars, Guns, military weapons and Archery products. Our Spudz brand is a premium line of lens care products that has set the standard for convenience since 2003. The Spudz product helped launch our company in 2001 and is the “Original” microfiber cloth attached to a neoprene pouch. With 25+ patents, Alpine Innovations continues to develop new and innovative products that improve the outdoor experience.
It all started with a muddy fly line. After a day fly fishing on the Little Blackfoot River in 2001, Darren Jones decided he needed a product that would not only clean his fly line, but protect his fingers. A few weeks and several prototypes later, he created Stripee, the first product for what would eventually launch Alpine Innovations. The company’s next big break came in 2002 when Darren spilled mayo on his glasses. After an unsuccessful search for his lens cloth, he knew he needed to invent a product that wouldn’t get lost. With a little help from his wife Shellie, Spudz was born. Spudz helped put Alpine Innovations on the map, and the company has been creating innovative products for the outdoors ever since. Fast forward to today, and Darren is still looking for problems to solve. With 25 patents and over 30 unique products, Alpine Innovations continues to create products that solve everyday problems. We proudly manufacture our products in the USA.
