A German designer and art director, I run trails and climb mountains.

Growing up in Germany my vacation playground were the magnificent Alps, from the Bodensee to the Dolomites.
Now I live in the Pacific Northwest and my adventures include running windy trails, climbing craggy peaks, and visiting the historic lodges of our National Parks right in my backyard.

Inspiring a new generation of hikers, trail runners, and families from near and far to explore the outdoors is my passion and goal with The Outdoor Society.

I’m @mathiaseichler on Twitter, and  here is my  personal website. and here’s the gear that keeps me powered in the mountains and at home.
