Lenard Reid & Elizabeth Leboe

Elizabeth Leboe and Lenard Reid never intended to design and manufacture down jackets in Kathmandu. But they did, and now after 6 years, sales of these jackets have helped them sponsor the lifetime educations of ten children in Nepal and a whole lot more. Together, they created “Jackets for Jasper”: their “HQ” is their home in North Vancouver.

Lenard caught the travel bug at an early age. He has had the good fortune (in addition to quitting his job 4 times) to have worked, travelled, biked and hiked in 50+ countries.

With a background in geology, Liz has always felt a pull to the mountains and wild places. Her choice of adventures are usually on foot, bike or kayak… and sometime lead to unexpected places.
