Innovating with a Purpose

POWGIRL - Crafted by Women, Tailored for Women

The inception of POWGIRL was rooted in a straightforward reality: most sports gear was not designed with women in mind. Recognizing this disparity, Auclair set out to instigate a change. With a deep understanding of the unique essence and requirements of female athletes, they launched POWGIRL. It's not merely about sporting gear; it's about harnessing the energy, enthusiasm, and determination that women bring to outdoor pursuits. The mission extends beyond providing exceptional products to nurturing a community that is both uplifting and empowering.
