Our Story

The story of Pacterra starts with a single athlete from Portland, Oregon who wanted a pair of compression shorts that performed without the distraction of thick seams, unnecessary design, and bulky materials. Two years after taking an internship at a local design studio, our founder became the studio’s Operations Manager and began iterating designs for his perfect compression short. What started as a project of passion to create a better product quickly became a hit with friends, family, and athletes of all disciplines.

Guided by the principle that Feel Is Performance, Pacterra Athletics was born to enable the best in every athlete through haptic design.
