Sweet strives to inspire every outdoor enthusiast – from World Cup ski racers to the weekend warrior out with their kids and everyone in between – to give them the confidence to go further and faster. If you aren’t able to push your own limits, we aren’t doing our job.

Our core design philosophy guides all our decisions: Stronger. Lighter. Better.

We are overachievers with extremely high expectations for our products; well above and beyond industry certifications and standardized tests.

Sweet is based in Norway and was founded by a tight-knit group of skiers, riders, cyclists and paddlers, looking to make the best helmets and apparel available. We build the gear we use and stand behind every product we make. To us there is no compromise. Our passion is your protection.

Environmental and Social Practices

We try to make as little impact on the environment as possible by developing high-quality, long lasting products. In our search for performance and durability, we always opt for eco-friendly materials whenever possible and luckily, there is an increasing range of great new materials to choose from.

We will never compromise on the safety for a user of a Sweet Protection product but are always on the lookout for better and stronger materials with an eco-friendly approach. You can always feel safe when wearing any products from Sweet Protection.

  • Factory Life: Making a secure and just work environment for our co-workers at the factories, is super important to us. To secure this, we follow the UN´s Universal Declaration of Human Rights and The International Labour Organization(ILO)´s regulations that involve: Equal pay between men and women, no child labour and no exceeding of normal work hours. All of our workers are entitled to overtime provisions, and to get breaks during their work days. Which yes, should be a given, but sadly not in this world.
  • Sourcing and quality assurance: To be closer to our production, which mainly takes place in Vietnam, China and Myanmar, we have an office comprising 50 colleagues in Shanghai. They perform our inspections, secure the product quality and create important long-term relations with the factories.
  • Packaging: We wish there was a better solution to this, but packaging is never really eco-friendly (yet!). We have reduced the amount of plastic in our packaging to a minimum and try to use recycled plastic whenever possible. The goal is to have a new eco-friendly packaging in 2020. Meanwhile we urge you to recycle. On our side, we try to make up for creating all this waste, by paying qualified national recycling firms to take care of it in a sustainable way through The Green Dot System.
  • Fabrics in apparel: We produce a lot of our stuff from wool, which is super eco-friendly. When other materials are needed however, we do our best to secure that our products are 100 % free from bad chemicals. Partnering with solid suppliers like W.L. Gore and Associates and PrimaLoft gives us solid documentation and we share the same ambition for more recycled and sustainable fabrics.
  • Non Mulesing Wool: To get that soft and silky feel to our wool products, we use wool from the finest merino sheep in New Zealand and Australia. It's super important for us to know that the sheep have been taken good care of, and that they haven’t been mistreated by the horrifying mulesing technique. To ensure this, we get our wool from the strictest controlled channels that have been created internationally. The certificates that follow, are the best assurances we currently have to make sure that our wool products are manufactured under good welfare conditions for the animals.
  • Fur free: We don't use any fur in our products.
