Alpine Design of Boulder, CO, was originally named Alp Sport which was founded by George Lamb in the 1960s. Mr. Lamb sold Alpine Design to General Recreation, Inc. of Ithaca, NY, took a break, then created his final outdoor company, Camp 7. George Lamb was known for his innovative sleeping bag designs.
More recently, the name "Alpine Design" has been used by The Sports Authority for its house-brand camping gear. Sports Authority Alpine Design tents are manufactured by NorthPole USA. Other Alpine Design products are likely made by various other companies.
