For a long time, we have wanted to create some functional performance apparel that people could wear while enjoying their favorite activities. Finally, after a ton of planning, research, and meetings, AvidMax is proud to launch our 1st edition AvidMax Apparel!
We partnered with Ouray Sportswear (pronounced “Ooo-ray”), a local company based out of Denver, to create our very first apparel line, and we are so glad we did!

We brought in a selection of different pieces: men’s shirts, women’s shirts, performance long sleeve shirts, hats, and a super comfy hoody to complete the collection!
