Driven by a passion for life outside, KEEN is a values-led, independently owned brand from Portland, Oregon, that’s on a mission to create original and versatile products, improve lives, and inspire outside adventure.


Together with Travel Portland we would like to invite you to join our competition, to come over and have a look yourself!



With the Pacific Ocean to the west and Mount Hood to the east, it’s no wonder Portlanders are an outdoorsy bunch. This progressively green city, known for its parks and gardens, is home to Forest Park, the largest urban forested park in the US. Discover Portland’s distinctive neighbourhoods, craft beer, indie music scene, great shopping (there’s no sales tax in Oregon!), and restaurants whose chefs insist on local, sustainable ingredients to build their menus.

Hotel Zags

The Hotel Zags is on a mission to tell a different story – one that brings together Oregon’s natural beauty and the city’s quirky culture. They’ll be your home base as you explore the neighborhood via a rented bike from the Gear Shed, relax in the courtyard with a local sip from restaurant, Nel Centro, or visit nearby shopping, dining and culture hotspots.
