Mountainsmith has been building some of the best-made, most durable and functional packs available since 1979. Even legendary adventure photographer Chris Burkard collaborated with them on their T.A.N. (Tough As Nails) line of camera bags to create a series of packs unmatched for their comfort, stability, value and performance in the backcountry. But that's nothing new: the quality of Mountainsmith's gear has been setting standards of excellence for years. From their technical backpacks to trekking poles, and of course their iconic lumbar packs and their newer hits like the Cycle Cube, Mountainsmith is a brand whose popularity and respect just continues to trend foward every year.
