Male Gear Wear
Gear Wear is a Ashland, Oregon based retailer of men’s aerobic sports clothing. Gear Wear will concentrate on running, cycling, cross country skiing and snowshoeing apparel.
Currently, there are local retailers that offer these types of garments, however most retailers are sport specific, such as a bicycle shop or a running store. The few retailers that have a wide range of sports have limited inventories. This company was founded on the premise that most aerobic sport athletes participate in more than one type of activity.
