Built to withstand the extreme conditions experienced by alpinists, explorers and trekkers. Mountain Equipment create the most functional performance wear, packed with features and bristling with technology, which makes their clothing the best choice whether you`re on a Polar expedition or racing light-and-fast to an alpine summit.

Since Mountain Equipment began in 1961 they have participated in countless ascents of the world’s highest peaks, supported climbers establishing ever more adventurous routes and equipped world record setting trips to the North and South Poles. Mountain Equipment have been making gear for the most inhospitable places on the planet for over 50 years and have built an unequalled record of success on Himalayan summits, history-making alpine assaults and Arctic expeditions.

Its not our job to try to tell people why they go to the wild places and mountains. It’s our job to make the very best gear in the world.

This history gives them the perfect foundation for building truly functional mountaineering clothing and camping gear. Products are designed to cope with extreme conditions and strike a careful balance between forward-thinking technologies and tried-and-tested constructions.
