We could start this description with lyrics from John Denver's classic Rocky Mountain High, but after we legalized recreational marijuana... We will run with Bob Dylan, who sang in Man of Constant Sorrow, "I'm going back to Colorado. The place that I started from." Two years ago, when we completed a reevaluation of our buckle designs, we came back to Colorado and created this buckle. It has since been featured in 5280 Magazine. We created this buckle because we are a bunch of Coloradans in a Colorado based company, and we Coloradans are a unique bunch. We think a 10 mile hike up a 14,000 foot tall mountain is a normal weekend activity, a backcountry hut trip is a good way to unwind, and we will rise at 5am to ski that untouched powder line. We know when elk season starts, and why it is worthwhile to put on your waders in January, but we aren't just a state of outdoorsmen and women. We are a state with 3 of the top 6 regions in high-tech startups (Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins). We have one of the fastest growing alternative energy industries in the country. And with the most craft breweries per capita, we know how to party. Needless to say, we are proud to be Coloradans. Buy this buckle, and show other people you too are proud to be a Coloradan. Just in case you were worried, we hand cut the metal, hand cut the ironwood, and inlay the ironwood all here in Colorado.
