Why Work For Mountain Equipment?

It’s not our job to try to tell people why they go to the wild places and mountains. It’s our job to make the very best gear in the world. Since Mountain Equipment began in 1961 we have participated in countless ascents of the world’s highest peaks, supported climbers establishing ever more adventurous routes and equipped world record setting trips to the North and South Poles. We have been making gear for the most inhospitable places on the planet for over 50 years. You learn a lot here. And all we have learned, lives in our gear.
