Founders

PROTREK was founded in 1990 by certified expedition instructors who share the same thoughts and interests on outdoor activities. The first PROTREK retail store was established in 1992. Over the years, we have been providing high-quality, safe and reliable gears to outdoor and travel enthusiasts. We continue to grow and innovate; and allocate the resources on those quality and socially responsible products. For the excellence of services, various trainings to our service teams are continuously provided. Nowadays, PROTREK has been one of the largest outdoor specialty retailers in Hong Kong. With complete distribution network, we stick close to the needs of customers and hope to offer a variety of appropriate outdoor gears to outdoorsmen and travellers.

Our founders are experienced outdoor instructors who love trekking and travelling. Their outdoor qualifications were certified by recognized international institutions. With more than 30 years of instructing experiences, they are themselves the most appropriate testers of the outdoor gears. Safety and reliability are their main concern.
