Okay…We’ve officially launched and welcome to Hyperlite Mountain Gear and the Blog.
It’s been an exciting and challenging few months. We have been working hard on product development and production and we now have one of the lightest and most durable one-person, and two-person, shelters on the market.
Feedback has been awesome. Our ambassadors on the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail are using the shelters every night and say they are well exceeding their expectations. The shelters are versatile, easy to pitch, and incredibly comfortable. The guys are dry and insect free.
The Windrider backpack is proving to be a big hit on the trail as well. It’s trimmed down to the essentials, but has everything you need to roam the planet. We’ve already sold several packs to Appalachian Trail hikers who have met Bama on the trail.
Having reached a milestone with the web launch, Mike and I got out into the White Mountains this weekend. It was great to be out. We did thirty miles on Saturday and met a ton of great people. There were literally thousands of visitors to the National Forest on Saturday and Sunday.
We want to give a special shout out and congratulations to the gang from Montreal who summited all of New Hampshire’s 4,000 footers in twenty-four hours. Great job!!
