  The company name Freeride Systems originates from the freeride form of many sports found in skiing, mountain biking, motorcycling, etc in which the founder participates. The Prospect Pants Co. name originates from a mountain located in the historic mining district of Leadville, Colorado in addition to the positive connotation derived from the word "prospect". Leadville and much of the economies of Colorado were founded on prospecting and mining. In modern times, many of the economies of Colorado are derived from mountain sports and most recently from freeride sports in the same mountains the original 1800's prospectors worked and lived. FRS and PPC are companies formed by Michael Collins under a single parent Colorado LLC to transact sales of its Colorado Made apparel and gear lines. FRS/PPC products are designed in the mountains (10,200' elev +) to rigorous standards in extreme conditions so that they may perform for customers anywhere. FRS/PPC takes a very active roll in philanthropy and charitable initiatives through donations and volunteer work. FRS/PPC were born initially from webbing based products designed to make travel more efficient in slack, hike to, side, and yo yo country for skiers and snowboarders. From the initial products and the skills of the original sewing team new products were born. In early 2011, FRS/PPC engaged professional industry design engineers to work side by side with Collins on perfecting several designs that would become the staples for the 2011 FRS/PPC lines. These new lines consist of jackets, short pants, and long pants all sewn domestically in Colorado with materials primarily sourced from the USA. There are some products whereby materials must be acquired from international sources. FRS/PPC will always attempt to create 100% Made in USA products first. However, in current times of international trade agreements and globalization, the USA has allowed many facets of production to move overseas and some fabrics and materials are only available from international producers. FRS/PPC is beginning to work with professional athletes to represent FRS/PPC brand names to new heights among athletes and consumers. FRS/PPC operates from a corporate office and workshops in Leadville, Colorado USA at 10,200’ elevation and the highest incorporated city in America. A Denver field office and Wholesale Showroom have also been opened in 2011. FRS/PPC products are sewn in multiple locations throughout Colorado.

Thoughts on America:
We all believe that if we get can people to wear our clothes and try and gear then they we once again believe in the American manufacturers and materials and will stop sending their money overseas when America needs it most. We believe this is the best way to spread the awareness cause seeing is believing. We want to be a part of keeping America Proud, and being able to display it by what they wear not just what they say.
