In 2009 the idea for the was born, Henrik envisioned a way to be able to provide the same great UL gear to European user, without them having to order from halfway around the world, pay high shipping and duty rates, and have to wait weeks to see their new gear.  In 2010 the all e-commerce site was launched, and its focus was on small UL brands generally only found in the US.
