Based in Jackson Hole, Cloudveil is an industry-leading designer of technical outerwear.

Jalex Group acquired a majority stake in Cloudveil in 2002. By partnering with the Founders, Jalex was able to allow the Founders to focus exclusively on sales growth and product development, while Jalex took over building out and running the administrative infrastructure to allow the Company to successfully and seamlessly grow revenue by close to four times in fewer than three years. 

Cloudveil was acquired by Sport Brands International, parent company of Fila, in 2005.



Ouray Sportswear (pronounced “your-ay”) is an elite designer, decorator, and distributor of customized casual apparel and headwear to an ever-growing list of retail customers in the Destination/Resort, Collegiate, Golf, and Corporate (Mass Retail, Advertising Specialties, and Private Label) marketplaces.

Jalex Group acquired 100% of the assets of Ouray in 2007. Jalex principals took over the day-to-day management of the Company, expanding into new markets, enhancing existing markets, and curating a larger, more market-relevant product offering, leading to exponential revenue growth and exceptional margins.

Ouray was acquired by TSC Apparel, a portfolio company of Centergate Capital in 2019.
