Over four decades, Robertson has been providing gear featured in the challenge course, zipline, fire
rescue, police, military, marine and medical rehabilitation fields. The company’s foundation has enabled
the continued growth and expansion within many of these industries.
The early days of the company introduced designs by climber Brian Robertson. Brian’s harnesses were
innovative, often known and labeled as Clan Robertson. Brian worked from his home during the late 60’s
in Boulder Colorado. The brand was well known by climbing fanatics within the western region of the
country becoming one of the first mountaineering manufacturers in the United States. Brian’s early
crafting of the initial big wall harness used a unique seated design making an impression on the climbing
industry.
The second generation of the company introduced designs by Ken Koerwitz who fashioned projects that
would venture the company into the hang gliding and backpack manufacturing industries.
The Third generation of the company would finally settle in Southern Nevada finding new life within its
early roots; the harness industry. Resurrected as a competitive Harness manufacturer, Ken Moore
fabricated designs featured in the fire rescue and ropes course industries.
Today, Robertson Harness is extremely active in the Ropes Course and Zipline industries featuring
harnesses, trolleys, and pulleys. The company continues renewed development and design seen in the
rehabilitation and medical fields. As the company continues to grow within these fields, Robertson
harness remains a relevant manufacturer in today’s’ outdoors industry.
Although it has called Nevada home for some time, Robertson Harness has now returned to the Rocky
Mountain region of Colorado.
