Mountain Hardwear's philosophy of living boldly means daring to be different, leaning into life, and pursuing new challenges. Founded in 1993, Mountain Hardwear began with a small band of outdoor industry iconoclasts. They saw that the industry was changing - compromising quality and degrading technical designs. Therefore, MHW was founded to stay true to the needs of outdoor athletes everywhere. And they believe that everyone who enjoys the outdoors is considered an outdoor athlete, so they began their journey to outfit any and every adventure seeker.
