Essential to our company, our athlete ambassadors test, critique and tell stories about our ultralight outdoor gear. They are the top guides, ice climbers, pack rafters, multi-discipline adventurers, ski mountaineers, thru hikers and backpackers in their fields. They provide us with invaluable input as they put our gear through its paces, and they shape the final results of our purpose-driven packs and shelters. We build minimalist, ultralight gear designed to be used, hard. Because we know where gear that doesn’t meet their needs and expectations ends up. And that’s in a corner somewhere, gathering dust.
