Black Diamond - Saxx

Black Diamond is entirely about climbing and skiing. What began with a backyard anvil and a hammer has grown into a global company with offices on three continents that's not just for rock climbers, but one that stands for the spirit of the sports we live. Since 1957, Black Diamond's innovative gear designs have set the standards in numerous areas.
In 2006, former baseball player, Trent Kitsch was on a fishing expedition and after spending hours in a cold, clammy ocean suit he knew there had to be a better way to protect his package from chafing. He imagined a catcher’s mitt hammock design and turned it upside down in his mind. After the fishing trip, and with the hammock idea still percolating, he worked with a seamstress and designer to create a paneled fabric hammock that separated his boys from his legs. Fourteen prototypes later, the BallPark Pouch and SAXX Underwear were ready for action.
