Upcountry Aloha designs and makes their products in Upcountry Maui, using materials they source from Hawai’i. The Pau hana ponchos are hand-constructed to accommodate the high heat of south Maui as well as the frigid conditions at the top of Haleakala. What does pau hana mean? Synonymous with happy hour, pau hana is Hawaiian Pidgin slang for being finished with work — using the word pau, to finish, and hana, to work, in Hawaiian. Pau hana is more than just a happy hour; it's all about making the decision to leave work behind for the day and enjoy your free time. Whether you’re finished working, surfing, scuba diving or simply swimming, you will love relaxing in one of our pau hana ponchos and robes.
