Ski racer CB Vaughn started his company with one product – The Super Pant. The CB brand became iconic almost overnight. As a world-class skier, CB understood the value of high-performance apparel. CB applied that perspective to every product carrying the CB label.

True to CB’s origins fabrics like Nylon Taslan with bold colors and accents the newest collection from CB stands out in a field of outerwear sameness. We believe our partnership with CB and the resulting products are a true reflection of the brand’s heritage.

The culture of innovation continues at Cloudveil today. Vertical Brands was charged with the development and manufacture of tents, backpacks, sleeping bags and gloves. The product is true to the brand. Vertical Brands embraced Cloudveil’s passion for product. Cloudveil is driven by its pursuit of inspired design and uncompromising performance.
