CONTEMPORARY OUTDOOR SINCE 1870
Equipment used by the best for your adventures, great and small
QUALITY IS MORE THAN JUST A DETAIL
We need to think big if we are to get past our own limits and achieve new goals. And we’ve been doing this every day for more than 150 years.
If you are dreaming of your next adventures, then we want to help and accompany you and your spirit of adventure into a safer, more comfortable tomorrow.
And this is why to us, the future means being an excellent all-round outdoor company, and we want our quality products to speak for themselves, to professionals and adventure lovers of all ages, all over the world.
When travelling, the destination is not as important as the journey itself.
We believe in the freedom to experience our journeys without limits, according to our own lifestyles, carefully choosing our own travelling companions.
This is why we work alongside a team of testers and ambassadors who experience the outdoor world in every aspect...
From trail running champions to climbers and freeriders, professional travellers, and modern-day explorers, our research aims to find the best possible solutions to meet your desire for freedom, following your own lifestyle choices.
Life is always a challenge we need to be ready to face... Without forgetting the fun part!
We think adventure means safe fun for everyone, which is why we work to make sure our technology allows you to face challenges, large and small with the right peace of mind and always with fun.
This is why we work with the best technology brandsfor the outdoor industry and why we test our products in extreme conditions in our HighLab laboratories, located at extremely high altitudes or in the depths of the earth.
A great challenge needs to be met with careful preparation, detailed planning to cover risks, and the right equipment.
We have always designed and tested our products working with industry professionals: Alpine guides, Mountain Rescue, Mountain Medicine.
And just as we have with great names from the past, we work in close collaboration with them to guarantee reliable equipment, complete with state-of-the-art safety features.
A passion for life in close contact with nature can be a heritage, passed downthrough the generations, almost by osmosis.
This is what happened to us: for 5 generations, we have keenly focused our efforts on smart solutions to meet the needs of our customers, with passion and with the creativity that is so typical of the Italian family business.
And to do this, we listen, we test and we invest in research and quality , placing our many years of experience at the service of outdoor enthusiasts.

TEN RULES FOR THE RESPONSIBLE TRAVELLERFerrino has always been on the side of the Planet and today it is particularly close to those who promote new forms of tourism that safeguard the environment and establish dialogue among peoples. The T.RES (Turismo Responsabile - Responsible Tourism) project was founded in 2006. Its aim has been to promote ethical travel, respecting different areas and the customs of those who live there.
It is a form of tourism that is a mouthpiece for the universal principles of fairness, sustainability and tolerance.
And alongside this project - nothing better than Ferrino.
