Caribee is one of Australia’s most well known and leading travel and outdoor brands. Our success is based on our commitment to offer the latest in design, quality and practical backpack, travel and outdoor products. We are committed to improving the Caribee brand by providing unparalleled products, service and quality to our customers.
Clipper International Corp. incorporating Clipper Trading Co Pty Ltd, was established in 1956. The company soon recognised the vast potential of the outdoor industry, and changed it's focus in 1982 to meet the growing outdoor consumer trends. This resulted in the birth of the now famous Australian travel and outdoor brand, Caribee. Continual growth and a huge market following has allowed Clipper International to continually develop and expand it’s office and warehouse facilities. Located just 3km from both the Sydney CBD and the international airport, our modern 6,000 square meter office/warehouse complex boasts the latest in technology to ensure all orders and stock are processed efficiently and effectively. Our expansion has seen the opening of our Chinese headquarters based in the city of Yangzhou, in the Jiangsu Province of China. This opening has enabled Clipper International to better service our international clients.
As well as our focus on Caribee branded products, Clipper International also operates as a distributor for international travel, sports, luggage and outdoor brands. Over the years we have introduced and distributed brands such as Camelbak, Wenger, Streamlight, Rider footwear, Sherpani and more. Our position as a leading wholesaler in the Australian travel and outdoor market allows us to effectively represent international brands in the Australian market.
Caribee’s name is derived from a South American piranha like species know scientifically as the Pygocentrus nattereri or Caribe. Its compact size masks the fact that it is a dominant and resilient species in its environment. A creature to be taken seriously. At Caribee we take this same approach.
