Socks Inspired by Adventure 

Mountainsmith has been an innovator in the backpacking industry since before it was cool. Ever since their beginning in 1979, the company has designed high quality long lasting packs in their home town of Golden, Colorado. With the mindset of creating seriously durable gear that could withstand the rigor of Rocky Mountain pursuits, the founding principles of the brand brought our industry some of the first fully rigid backcountry ski sleds, hiking lumbar packs, k9 packs, and high quality mountaineering gear. As a company, Mountainsmith continues its commitment to building the best made, most durable and functional packs on the market; unmatched by anyone for their comfort, stability, value and performance in the backcountry. This tradition of legendary quality continues with a full line of outdoor products for today’s active lifestyle consumer. Learn more about Mountainsmith at https://mountainsmith.com/
