What's with the Bunny?
Matt Brooks acquired the bunny on a climb as a gift from a Russian climber. The bunny presented itself as a conversation piece from the start. The bunny pin a Russian climber was wearing caught Brooks’ attention. He inquired about it and the Russian climber gave it to him. From then on Matt wore the bunny pin on his hat when he was climbing. Brooks also joked that he’d “never wanted to climb anything a bunny couldn’t hop on.” Of course this wasn’t the case as he was climbing very technical, vertical terrain.
After some office chat among the Brooks-Range staffers, they decided to use the bunny icon as a lark. It stuck and became the company symbol that customers and fans became fond of. When Brooks-Range stopped using it people called the office concerned that they were going to get rid of it. This is how the Brooks-Range bunny came to represent the face of Brooks-Range Mountaineering Equipment Co.
