As far as I know, (I stopped working in the du about christmas) Kathmandu only sells kathmandu
branded things. Sometimes they are made by other people and rebranded, and some times their made
just for us. If the company owns Macpac, (who have their own stores btw) then the two branches are
very seperate. The only exclusion to this rule is shoes. Kat tried to make shoes a few times, decided
they sucked, and now gets other companies shoes. They currently have Salomon, Teva, Five.Ten,
etc. However, these are bought straight from the manufacturer. Eg. if someone asked for Five.Ten
climbing shoes, we couldn't ring up Spelean and order some, because we didn't get the five.tens from
them in the first place. (sidenote: Guide tennies are available though).
