Saggies are still alive and popular in urban America. I'll never understand how people tolerate that feeling that their pants are falling off all day long, or even for a few minutes.. But millions still do..
Cloudveil was bought (by ... I can’t remember) and turned into junk. So yes, the founder started Stio.
Spyder, I believe - in Boulder.
Sullivan founded Cloudveil in 1997, after being a manager at an outdoor retail store. The company later brought in private equity money and grew to $22 million in sales. It sold to Spyder Active Sports in 2008, before being sold again, this time to Windsong Brands in 2010. Sullivan left shortly afterward. Earlier this year, Windsong announced another management change at Cloudveil, bringing in Rockhopper Group to move the brand forward.
Sullivan said some past Cloudveil employees are now with him at Stio.
completely agreeAll I can offer is what ski clothing NOT to resurrect: Body Glove neoprene ski pants. Please God, no.
I've worked with them. They do a lot of private label and licensed brand goods for off-price retailers (Nordstrom Rack, Saks Off 5th, Coscto). Great quality for the price, especially on basic poly/spandex pieces like base layers, work out gear, and run accessories (the $15 gloves are the perfect weight for the uphill on tours & hold up really well), but they're not using anything cutting edge in terms of more technical pieces like waterproof mitts.Out with my wife the other day shopping I found this Head moc-turtle neck shirt. Since I have a pair Head Rally skis it was a automatic purchase. On the Head tag it stated "This Head Product Is Made Under License By Highlife LLC." I am not sure who they are because I have not Googled them yet. But they put the Head name on some clothes that seem to be sports related.
Sadly the manufacturer of Club A (Torstai) was purchased by Luhta and dropped that collection in the mid 1990's. Now Torstai (www.torstai.com) has been reduced to a woman's sportswear collection.

Spyder purchased them and killed the brand. https://www.snewsnet.com/press-release/spyder-active-sports-acquires-cloudveil-mountain-worksI’ve got a few pieces by Cloudveil I picked up used and have put through the ringer. Simple, solid pieces. Not sure what happened to them.
Spyder purchase Cloudveil and tanked the brand. https://www.snewsnet.com/press-release/spyder-active-sports-acquires-cloudveil-mountain-worksYes, kind of. Not so much that Cloudveil became Stio, but the original founder of Cloudveil also founded Stio and both are based in JH.

Who remembers Windy Pass? That was my first Gore Tex stuff.
Moonstone was great. And I just bought a vintage CB pullover last year, ready for retro day!
