In 1979, legendary outdoorsman Patrick Smith founded Mountainsmith on the necessity for durable gear that could withstand the rigors of the Rocky Mountain backcountry. It is here that the original lumbar pack was born and the Mountainsmith brand began its legacy.
Today, Mountainsmith celebrates not only the gear that has led us here, but the stories, adventures, and experiences that define the rugged, Colorado-grown, no B.S. lifestyle we continue to share. Headquartered at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Golden, CO, we’ve spent the past 40 years balancing hard work and playing hard, combining our passions for backpacking, camping, hiking, adventure photography, travel, and our dogs. We are committed to creating durable provisions for every aspect of your adventure, tools that cut the frills and stand the test of time. Like our community, our gear is Forged for Life.
