Why We Are Named MuskOx

We are named after the rugged MuskOx species that is uniquely qualified to survive the frigid climate and protect their community. Muskox thrive because they travel in packs, have the warmest insulation in the animal kingdom, and have fur that’s finer than cashmere. Most importantly, muskox know when to stand up individually to their manhood being tested and when to band together as a pack to protect their young from external attacks. MuskOx was founded by Brad Hoos in 2019 because he found himself constantly looking for clothing that he could wear to the office or out on an adventure just as easily. A long-time adventure seeker that still had the practical obligations of day-to-day life, Brad created MuskOx alongside some key partners.  

At MuskOx, we believe in the power of the outdoors and the need to stay connected with adventure and wildlife. While we may not be climbing peaks or braving arctic weather like the muskox, we connect with the rugged pursuit of something great. We make clothing that brings the outdoors into our everyday life with thoughtful design and performance features that simply make your life better. When you wear MuskOx, you support American wildlife and the active pursuit of adventure. We are partnered with the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (AWCC) to support the conservation of muskox and wildlife in Alaska. For every purchase of $100 or more, we donate $10 to the AWCC in support of their efforts of quality animal care, conservation, research, and wildlife education.
