Hyperlite Mountain Gear manufactures ultralight, durable outdoor gear that has everything an outdoor adventurer needs and nothing more. By stripping everything inessential from our products, we provide an enhanced backcountry experience by lightening loads with packs, shelters and accessories that are an optimal balance between weight and durability. We achieve this using modern, high-tech, waterproof materials coupled with a minimalist design philosophy to create full efficiency and utility for all levels of outdoor adventurers.
Hyperlite Mountain Gear was founded in 2009 by brothers Mike and Dan St. Pierre with the mission to be the Leaders in Lightweight. We embrace innovations in materials technology and a shift to a simpler, refined approach to outdoor adventuring. The staff at Hyperlite Mountain Gear is dedicated to the exhaustive research and development required to make durable and comfortable lightweight gear that provides improved performance, safety, and fun in the backcountry.
Hyperlite Mountain Gear products have received various Editors’ Choice Awards and have been featured in print and online publications such as Backpacker, Rock & Ice, Outside, Trail Runner, Canoe & Kayak, Inc., Outdoor Gear Lab, Trailspace.com, Indefinitely Wild, Down East, and many more.
Hyperlite Mountain Gear is now partnering with gear review sites, high-traffic bloggers, and websites dedicated to the promotion of innovative outdoor gear and the shifting philosophies toward high-tech materials and minimalist design for enhanced performance and enjoyment in the outdoors.
