The Ignik team is comprised of outdoor people with outdoor passions. From snowboarding with family to ice climbing with friends, from camping in the Wind Rivers to ice fishing in Wisconsin, from long-distance, off-road motorcycling to cheering on kids' from the chilly sidelines, Ignik's people play as hard as they work. Graeme Esarey founded Ignik after attempting to transit the Northwest Passage, from Alaska to Greenland, with his family. In 2018 Graeme Esarey, an outdoor industry executive, quit his job to set sail on an old raceboat called Dogbark with his wife and their two daughters, ages nine and twelve. The goal was to navigate from Seattle to Greenland via Alaska and the fabled Northwest Passage. Ultimately, with storm-driven ice blocking the Passage, the expedition turned back, but Graeme was changed forever by the wildness of the place - and by witnessing the direct impact climate change is having on the wildlife, landscape, and stalwart people of the Arctic. Today Ignik makes high-quality, environmentally thoughtful heating products for the wilderness. We enable more folks to get outside earlier and remain outside longer.
