Summit to Success

Women Co-Founders of Adventum Colorado: Stephanie Coe and Kristin Miller celebrates outdoor adventure, hiking and Colorado’s highest peak

Hiking enthusiasts are encouraged to celebrate their love of outdoor adventure with thoughtfully designed apparel from new Colorado-based small business, Adventum Colorado. The name Adventum, which is Latin for “adventure," is the perfect fit for this small, locally owned business that evolved from the ideas and conversations among friends who discovered a mutual passion for hiking Colorado’s scenic trails.

Co- Owner Kristin Miller explained," I hiked my first 14er with my dad in 2009. It was Pikes Peak and I’ve personally been hooked on climbing 14ers ever since. In 2017, we (my dad, myself and my husband) formed a small team of hikers to climb Mt. Belford as part of a fundraising initiative for Multiple Summits for Multiple Sclerosis (MS4MS) which benefits and raises awareness for the Rocky Mountain MS Center. My friend Stephanie and her husband joined us on that team. They also got hooked on hiking 14ers and started hiking more of them with us each summer."

After successfully summiting several of Colorado’s esteemed "fourteeners" (mountain peaks that rise to an elevation of at least 14,000 feet) together, the group, proud of their achievements, began brainstorming ways in which to celebrate their successful mountain summits and the idea for Adventum Colorado was born. The founders began designing patches that could be affixed to popular trucker hats—each patch bearing the outline of various fourteener summits along with the name and elevation of each respective mountain, so hikers can wear their successful summits with pride. Those in the local hiking community know the difficulty and challenges involved in making it to the summit of a 14,000-foot mountaintop, and as a way to commemorate this personal triumph, Adventum Colorado offers stylish, high-quality trucker hats emblazoned with custom-designed patches representing most of the fourteeners around the state.

“Anyone who has made it to the summit of one of Colorado’s impressive 14,000-foot mountains knows the feeling of exhilaration from such an accomplishment,” explains co-owner Stephanie Coe. “We feel that this achievement should be celebrated…whether you are a newcomer to the fourteener community or a seasoned mountain climber.”

While the company’s original idea was to provide the hats with patch designs representing Colorado’s highest peaks, they also offer thick, durable, vinyl die-cut stickers showcasing the fourteeners around the state. Each sticker is scratch-proof and weatherproof against water and sunlight—perfect for a water bottle, laptop, lunchbox, snowboard, helmet, bicycle, skateboard, kayak or anywhere you want to display your love of Colorado’s mountains. The fourteeners hats and stickers are part of the company’s “Summa (or Summit) Collection.” Recognizing that not everyone is interested in climbing fourteeners, Adventum Colorado also designed a “Colorado Collection” with designs such as Hike ColoradoExplore More and Take A Hike, appealing to hikers and outdoor adventurists who simply relish opportunities to explore Colorado’s spectacular Rocky Mountains.

"Although climbing fourteeners can become quite an addiction for some, we recognize that not everyone has an interest, so we created our Colorado Collection that celebrates hiking all trails throughout this beautiful state,” says Coe. “Colorado is full of outdoor adventurers and explorers—for many of us, it’s why we live here or visit Colorado. Anyone can grab a t-shirt, hoodie, hat or other souvenir that represents their fondness for Colorado, but we wanted to create something special and unique for those who love hiking the endless number of trails throughout this incredible state and for those who simply love being outdoors and exploring Colorado.”

The hats retail online for $34 and stickers range in price from $3.99–$5.99. Both can be purchased at What better way to celebrate your love of hiking and adventuring in Colorado, as well as your mountain summits, than with a commemorative hat, patch or sticker?
