Gear for Life, with ultimate, long term value.
Made in America, COLORADO to be exact! Bred in the back country, and galvanized in combat, you won’t find tougher, better built outdoor gear. In fact, we’ve been doing so since 1978 – from backpacks to sleds, to Tipis and other shelters. We continue to innovate, and others continue to follow.
Being a small company, we keep a critical eye on quality control for the highest performance. No foreign sweat shops, no passing the buck. Your American dollars and jobs stay right here. Our customer service is top notch – you’ll speak to a real human 5 days a week who can guide you through our lineup.
Colorado, once a Mecca of backpacking innovation was home to companies like Lowe Alpine, Gerry and of course, Mountainsmith. Once those shops sent their production offshore, they gifted us a large pool of expert, industrial sewers to choose from; among them, many Mountainsmith pack builders who are long term (decades) staff – that says a lot for a company! Buy this gear with confidence – it’s based on three decades of knowing what it takes, and has been thoroughly torture tested.The skill and dedication of our American staff ensures we build the very best gear with a continuity unmatched anywhere.
