Smart, technical apparel for adventures near and far

Awhile back we had the opportunity to officially bring Proof into the Huckberry family, and we jumped at the chance given Proof's alignment with the Huckberry mission and ethos. Like the Huckberry guy, the Proof guy lives in the city but lives for adventure, and needs smart, technical apparel that performs at work, on the trail, and in the saddle—and ideally, all in the same day. Inspired by the spirit of the original Proof (formerly known as “Proof NY”), we took the brand back to the drawing board and refreshed the designs, fits, and fabrics with the goal of improving product performance while keeping the price points accessible. In the process, we traveled all over the world to find the best technical apparel manufacturers, and have partnered with blue chip factories from Portugal to Vietnam to the United States. We’re big fans of the new and improved line, and we hope you like them as much as we do.
