About Alpine Fit
Alpine Fit LLC is a company that designs, develops, tests, and manufactures base-layer active wear and essential accessories. The business was started in 2017 by Jennifer Loofbourrow, who has been working in the apparel industry since 2007. Jennifer’s vast and unique experience in the industry gave her a great foundation to start Alpine Fit. Currently, Alpine Fit has four employees, not including Jennifer, who actively operates the business. Since its inception, Alpine Fit has sought to expand through domestic manufacturing, including in Alaska, maintaining the “Made in the USA,” branding that they stand by. Jen is passionate about the work she does and looks forward to bringing high quality active wear to her customers.

In 2022, McKinley Alaska Growth Capital provided an SBA loan to Alpine Fit to provide working capital; allowing them to purchase raw materials to meet production needs, partner with a marketing firm to enhance exposure, and generally grow the business.
“We were thrilled to work with McKinley Alaska Growth Capital for our business loan needs, they offer exceptional and personal customer service, and I believe that everyone on their team truly cares about lifting up local Alaska businesses. The loan process was clear and went smoothly, I would highly recommend working with McKinley Alaska Growth Capital for your business needs. The loan money itself helped us achieve some necessary growth and scale to fulfill some large orders, to open a new store, and to purchase raw materials to meet our growing demands at a volume that allows for better pricing and supports the growth of our business!”
