About The Otter Company
The Otter Company, headquartered in Birmingham, Mich., designs, manufactures and markets comfortable, technical and ecologically sensitive outerwear for sports people. We maximize playtime and extend sessions and seasons with garments that allow play earlier in the spring, later in the fall and in any inclement weather.

Inspired by the otter, whose fur is the thickest in the animal kingdom and is constructed in layers to trap air, generate warmth, and keep the skin dry - the otter is comfortable at play in any climate. Otter garments emulate this brilliant natural design and the spirit of the otter - its playfulness, its freedom, and its willingness to continue to enjoy itself when the weather is less than ideal. We say, "Whatever the weather. Keep playing. Stay comfortable." It's the otter's way, and The Otter Company's pledge. www.theottercompany.com
