The L-Bow Story
L-Bow began in 1991, when a mother of four needed a solution for her kids’ chapped, cold wrists in snowy Minnesota. I started as part of L-Bow’s research and development team at age three, creating the original, patented and proprietary long gauntlet L-Bow™ mitten. After that, we continued to innovate new, practical, and safe children’s soft good products.
Fast-forward to today, and I am now the proud owner of this second generation, family owned and operated company. Growing up in rural Minnesota and now into my adult years, I have always had a passion for outdoor adventure. From hunting and camping to skiing and snowmobiling, I enjoy spending my time outside. My love of the outdoors, especially winter sports, even brought me to one of the northern most colleges in the country and then on to the mountains of Colorado, where I had the opportunity to ski and snowmobile while pursuing a career in sales for many years.
After spending close to a decade traveling three weeks a month, I decided it was time for a change. I had learned a ton, met a lot of great people, but it was time! In 2018, I officially took over as owner/operator of L-Bow™ and moved back to Minnesota.
We strive every day to help expand the outdoor industry by creating quality children’s gear that really works.
Let the next generation fall in love with winter. Won’t you join me?
