Inside Holden Outerwear
17 Aug, 2009
Located in the heart of downtown Portland, Holden Outerwear doesn’t blend into the surroundings on the mountains with a easy to spot style of outerwear. With pro shredder Mikey LeBlanc in charge, the company continues to break out designs, colors and styles that riders want more of each season. I stopped by their offices in Portland last Wednesday to check in and see what goes on behind the scenes at Holden.
When you first walk into Holden it isn’t your typical snowboarder that greets you at the door but a smooth skiing skier that says welcome to Holden.
The Portland office vibe is amazing and beautiful to be in. Holden’s office continues with pieces of outerwear around the office.
The first person who greeted me when I walked into Holden was Mikey LeBlanc. He is the man behind Holden, the genius, the shredder. He’s working here in the conference room and on his right was the 10-11 lines for Holden being created and completed.

The waiting area at Holden is stocked with magazines, posters and two cute french bulldogs to keep you occupied.
The cutest guard dogs ever are Sonny and Ruby guarding the Holden line who spend most of their day working on wrestling skills and they can take down anyone.

Last year Yobeat did a office tour video with Mikey Leblanc that is worth checking out.
Thanks to Mikey for taking the time to show me around the office last week and let me see what goes on inside Holden Outerwear in Portland, Oregon.
