Who Knew That the Czech Republic Produces Some of Europe’s Finest Outdoor Gear?

Italian and British brands hog the spotlight. Try something new.

There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of Tilak. Based in the northern mountains of the Czech Republic, Tilak is an under-the-radar outdoor brand creating some of Europe’s finest outerwear, and has been doing so since the ’80s. While most spotlight-hogging European outdoor brands hail from the U.K. or Italy, Tilak stands strong and proud as the Czech Republic’s most prominent outdoor brand. Its products are produced in strict accordance with deeply rooted Czech tradition, and is the only Czech outerwear producer permitted to work with Gore-Tex. The products — alpine shells, mid-layers, pants, boots, shoes and more — are crafted with impressive attention to detail. For now, Tilak’s goods appear to be unavailable in the U.S., but if you’re in Europe, and are able to navigate a mostly Czech website, you can purchase their goods online.
