kea outdoors


We make versatile & reliable outdoor gear to help you adventure with confidence.

Our mission

KEA Outdoors was born to help people connect with the outdoors and create great gear that enhances that experience. 

We believe confidence is the key to enjoying the best of your adventures and the gear you own should be with you wherever you go. Gear that you can trust, that does it's job and lasts the test of time. 

Because we live to explore, adventure and Live Wild!


Launched in 2021 by professional outdoor adventure guide Matt Butler, KEA Outdoors was born out of a desire to help people better prepare for all thier outdoor adventures.

As a guide, Matt understands first hand how quickly things can go wrong in the outdoors and how important it is to be fully prepared. He says, "Preparation is the key to survival, no matter how good we think we are. I created the KEA to offer a gear that helps you better prepare for all your adventures and to explore with confidence".

Since our initial launch on Kickstarter, we have shipped our gear to customers all over the world, bringing in rave reviews. We now strive to create more innovative & category leading products and build our community of adventurers worldwide.



Our name is inspired by the Kea, a spectacular native New Zealand Alpine Parrot. 

We are passionate about these special birds and that’s why we have partnered with the Kea Conservation Trust to help support them in their mission to protect the Kea that remain and improve their future prospects in the wild.
