  • September 1, 1986 -- Founded in Seattle, Washington, as De Sar Inc. by Rick Hemmerling and Joe Boldan.
  • 1987 The Baja is introduced - a ventilated shirt with lots of pockets that looks good enough to go into town. The Baja is the first "climate control" shirt.
  • 1988 The company is rebranded and the ExOfficio name is introduced.
  • 1991 We develop our own Nycott fabric to make the first comfortable 100% nylon pant. We are the first to build a brief into a non-elastic waist pant. Backpacker Magazine deems the Amphi pant the "Find of the Year".

  • 1993 We are the first major company to introduce high performance convertible clothing.
  • 1994 We build UV protection into a new shirt, the Air Strip®. It has a unique venting system and is the first synthetic shirt that is as comfortable as cotton but also wicks moisture. We also introduce a 3-position sun collar for adjustable protection from harmful UV rays.

Our Bugsaway® collection combines sun protection and insect repellent treatments for maximum outdoor protection. We also begin offering garments made with dri-release® and Freshguard®.
