STRUB Activewear was founded in Vancouver, Canada, in 2006, and then in Zurich, Switzerland in 2014, by renowned athlete Conny Strub. Our care for people and animals alike, our world view, and distinctive fashion-driven approach culminated in creating a business where the clothing and gear reflects our own sense of style and purpose.
The clothing lines we carry are functional, fashionable, comfortable and versatile – and are made from a variety of fibres, from technical to natural – because it is our culture to inspire adventure, no matter where you end up, from the wilderness to the office.

The Lower Mainland Ecoregion—the area surrounding Vancouver, B.C.—is a land of verticality. Its old-growth forests are dominated by cedars and firs hundreds of feet high and a thousand years old. It is a land of snow and ice, of rocky slopes, of alpine lakes and waterfalls. Adventures into this wilderness wonderland are likewise tests of gravity: fight it, flow with it or sit under a tree and watch it work, letting the falling pine cones drill you into comatose hallucinations of bomber crimps at Stawamus Chief and singletrack on the North Shore.
You don’t need a professional tour guide to experience the breadth of culinary riches on Granville Island. Wander around this foodie paradise, which features more than 70 eateries, Canada’s first microbrewery and artisan boutique sake winery, a summer farmers’ market, and, of course, Granville Island Public Market.
