Equipping expeditions for the harshest conditions on earth for over 50 years. Since Mountain Equipment began in 1961 they have continuously played a part in helping the world’s most talented and ambitious climbers, mountaineers and polar expeditionists push the limits of human achievement.
They have participated in countless ground-breaking 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.
They design, test and build their gear with passion and commitment. They use it themselves, and work closely with our Pro Partners to help them perfect their products so that you can be sure that your Mountain Equipment gear has been proven to perform.
