About us

Sportees got its start in Canada’s Yukon over 30 years ago with a line of custom clothing tailored to fit the active lifestyles of outdoor and fitness enthusiasts.

Worn worldwide
Today people are sporting our brand name all over the world, while engaged in every kind of recreational pursuit you can imagine. From the quality of our fabrics to our meticulous workmanship, Sportees garments are designed for comfort and built to last. Sportees combines performance fabrics with high quality construction – without the high price.

Yukon cold
Our Yukon roots give us an intimate familiarity with cool weather conditions and winter sports. Skiing, skating, dog mushing, winter running, skijoring – we enjoy them all and know how to bundle up to stay warm. But it’s not all about winter. You’ll find people wearing their Sportees all four seasons of the year. Canoeing and kayaking. Hiking and cycling. Running and rock climbing. Hunting and fishing.

Indoors
You’ll find us indoors too, from the fitness gym to the dance recital. Plus Sportees active wear can double as rugged work wear or everyday active wear for ‘casual Friday’ at the office, running the kids to soccer practice or just sporting around town.

Teams
We love helping you make your team look their best. We’ve made clothing for the Fulda Tire Company's media contingent in the Yukon Quest, wind suits for the Canadian Orienteering Team at World Championships, vests and hats for the Yukon Ski Team, and kitted out numerous teams at the Arctic Winter Games.

Community
It’s vital to us that we support our local community. We have had a team in the Kluane to Chilkat Bike Relay, the Klondike Trail of ’98 Road Race and we support all dance schools in Whitehorse, and donate to countless community organizations, including Ski Loppets, Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous, Whitehorse Cross County Ski Club and Women’s Soccer.

Today people are sporting our brand name all over the world, while engaged in every kind of recreational pursuit you can imagine.

Whether you’re ordering for yourself or your whole team, with Sportees it’s not just about the great outdoors…it’s about all the great gear that goes with it!
