Meet the Family! Meet the Brand!

Friends, Fans, and Adventure Seekers, 

Welcome to Nature Outfitters! Yes, we're the new kid on the block, but like our parent company, Signature Research, we're deeply rooted in the zip-line and ropes course industry! Where did we come from? Funny you should ask....

Four Score and seven years ago...Oh wait, that's not how the story goes! Let me start again.

It all started in the late 1970s when jumpsuits and the Shag hair-do were the pinnacle of style. Bob Marley, the Ramones, and Bob Seger's chart toppers blared over the giant, wooden cased RCA stereo consoles. Living rooms were filled with bright, poppy peacock decor and geometrical murals. Summer camps weren't just for kids, but the whole family! 

While families sun bathed at summer lakeside resorts, Sign of Nature, purveyors of ropes course design and zip lines, were installing the next generation of summer fun and family adventure just beyond the tree line. Through the 80s, these challenges in the trees, were the type of daring that America had been looking for! It's a bird! It's a plane! Wait, wait, that's just Jimmy flying... like a squirrel !?! Is that a Swiss seat tied around his waist? Ouch! Oh no, don't hit the tree! Don't hit the (Are you picturing George of the Jungle yet? You're welcome!)... Let's get back to the story...

The 90s hit, the industry grew, and Sign of Nature took off like a wildfire! Sign of Nature was shortened to Signature and BAM!! Signature Research formed! The fever spread. Adventure parks, ziplines, and ropes courses were built everywhere! As the industry grew, Signature saw a need for improved and safer designs, more robust gear testing, and better materials and installation requirements (This is where the fore fathers come in). Signature, a founding member of the ropes course and challenge course industry, continues to write policy and set the standard in zipline installations and safe business practices! Basically, Signature is the real MVP, the sultan of swap, the colossus of clout, the great bambino of the outdoor adventure industry!

Today Signature is one of the oldest and most progressive in the industry! Signature's US locations include California and Georgia, a sister company, Northwest Teambuilding in Washington, a zip tour course, Bellevue Zip Tours also in Washington, and a gear store, Nature Outfitters in Georgia! (That's us!)

Founded in January 2019, we're the youngest of the Signature crew! It's our goal to outfit our patrons for all of their outdoor excursions! Currently, we offer gear for zip lines, challenge courses, and high and low ropes courses! We want to be the best and know every detail about our products. You can most often find our staff in a tree, on a zip line or challenge course, or in the Sky Parlor (Nature Outfitters' own testing facility!). It's our goal to test each and every product offered on our web store to insure it's quality and durability! If it's not good enough for us, then it's not good enough for you! Check out our gear! check out our store! Stay tuned for more exciting products and additions to the Nature Outfitters brand!

Thanks for tuning in! Until next time,
