Keela’s History

Keela was founded on the East Coast of Scotland, the perfect place to innovate and test outdoor garments for the changeable British weather. With our HQ located in Glenrothes, we continue to provide UK-led garment designs.

The Keela Way

We aim to provide quality outdoor clothing packed with innovation and technology, and after over 25 years we continue to enhance our reputation based on these principles.

In an era of third-party manufacturing, we also aim to provide our garments in an ethical and sustainable manner; as one of the few true manufacturers left in the outdoors world.

Working to Extremes

At Keela we put the emphasis on garments that perform in the most extreme conditions of their intended environment. This means we don’t just lab test our garments in simulated environments; we put them out on the hills and ensure they provide the ultimate protection.

It’s this dedication that has led to us supplying a range of Emergency Services over the years, from Police to Military, Fire Services to Mountain Rescue Teams.

A Good Influence

Our links within the industry have meant that Keela has been able to remain competitive, designing innovative garments using high-quality materials.
With the dawn of the age of seam-sealed garments providing an alternative system of manufacture to improve waterproof seams, and with innovation in machinery and tapes carrying on today, Keela garments continue to benefit with each step.

Being born and bred in Scotland we know exactly how important it is that our products are able to withstand anything the elements can throw at us, providing you with total protection, so you can get on with your adventure and follow your instinct.
