About our brand

"With Fortress, you can wear less layers of clothing, and have less weight with a more dynamic temperature range. You can go from it being 50 degrees and jump into frozen Arctic water and have it be 20 degrees or 30 degrees outside and still feel comfortable.
-- Outdoor Media Company Owner

"The Fortress base layer was a game-changer. It allowed us to film on days that we normally wouldn't have been able to and we could stay out in the cold longer than the camera equipment could handle. That's when I was really sold on it. The battery life in our camera gear couldn’t keep up with Fortress. This is next-level stuff."

No Cold Chills!

"With other clothing, if you exert yourself at all and start sweating, you get cold. Fortress is incredibly unique. When you get wet, you stay warm.”
-- Outdoor Enthusiast



"I get tired of putting layers on and taking them off again. Fortress is
insulating and breathable at the same time, so it keeps you comfortable at a
wider range of temperatures -- even if you're exerting yourself and sweating
in the cold."
-- Peter Smith

All of the planning, preparation and time it takes to play outdoors is totally worth
it – except when someone gets cold and you have to call it a day. Staying
warm, even when you’re soaking wet, allows you to continue to hunt, fish, camp and ride without having to sacrifice safety.

"You can think better when you're warm and not shivering and shaking. I've been
out in midwinter -- particularly in directing traffic. You focus a lot on
being cold instead of doing your job. Anytime you're distracted, you're more
prone to making mistakes or overlooking something that's important. I hated
being cold."
-- Police Officer James

"Fortress Clothing allows me to exert myself in the wilderness and sweat in the winter
time months, and not be concerned that I'm going to die of hypothermia,
versus cotton or any other type of material out there. Fortress Clothing
allows you to mitigate your body moisture, because even when it's wet, it
still heats me up, and I haven't found anything else that can even come

Warmest headgear I've ever worn.

I love the balaclava. It keeps my head far warmer than any other headgear that I've ever worn.

Ten Stars

In over 50 years of hunting and being in the outdoors and purchasing hundreds and hundreds of items, I’m happy to say the Fortress lineup, including the face mask has performed exactly as it was presented it would. I highly recommend Fortress!

Excellent product

Well made and extremely warm.

Jaime Zamora

I have used other face masks and no other I've tried insulates from the cold wind like this, wore it today(40mph winds)working in my bucket truck and my head was cozy and quiet yet I could conversate with my team mate working 5 feet away on the other side of the pole. After we finished our work and were on the ground I suggested my friend try it on, he did and said "whoa". I told him it was an investment so hopefully he'll try Fortress gear for himself.

Very warm

Fits me very comfortably and keeps my head, neck and ears exceptionally warm and it's really nice to be able to undo the neck insulation padding when I get too warm without having to remove the head and ear insulation.
