Tee-Va or Teh-Va: Do You Know How to Pronounce These Brand Names?

The outdoor industry is filled with many difficult to pronounce brand names. Some of these brands come from other parts of the world while others just seem to pick words and spellings that are hard to say. I sat down with one of our buyers and compiled this list of hard to pronounce outdoor industry brand names. I'll admit there are more than a couple of these that I've been saying wrong for years.
