Welcome to the Next Level Expeditions online store.
By clicking on the links below or by navigating the Store Menu options, you will find plenty of information and detail about our products which have been designed just for mountaineers. But, first just a little bit of history.
Our company was founded because we love mountaineering and have travelled the world in search of the highest peaks. Along the way have met incredible new friends, lived unbelievable experiences and have grown in our immense respect for the great outdoors. We are mountaineers who value mountaineering souvenirs and other memorabilia to commemorate our vertical endeavors.
To mark each accomplishment and to remember our journeys, we searched everywhere for premium commemorative items to but were disappointed with what was we found. We found that the few products that were available were pretty substandard in quality, shoddily designed and not worthy of the recognition each mountain deserves.
That’s why we took on the challenge of coming up with our own creative ideas for what mountaineers would want and decided as entrepreneurs to produce a premium commemorative products. Our design inspiration comes from the artists of the 1930′s who met the USA Government challenge of creating posters for the people in a time of global economic difficulty. The same artistic style of the Works Progress Administration [WPA] to create bold, contrasting and inspirational messages/images has been replicated by Ben Noe and is reflected in our first design collection – Seven Summits Series. Additionally we have leveraged the same design for decals and coffee mugs and have plans for many other products in the future.
The second design phase [Dream Series]will feature the frequently climbed high mountains of South America, Asia, Europe and the North America. Included in the Dream Series will be: Mont Blanc [France/Switzerland], Cotopaxi [Ecuador], Pico De Orizaba [Mexico], Rainier [United States], Matterhorn [Switzerland], Huyana Potosi [Bolivia], Zugspitze [Germany], Everest Base Camp Trek, [Nepal], Chimborazo [Ecuador], Illimani [Bolivia], Grand Teton [United States] and Elbert [United States]. We are working on them right now and will make them available in July 2013.
