In 1969, Seattle engineer and lifelong mountaineer Larry Penberthy formed Mountain Safety Research as a one-man crusade dedicated to improving the safety of climbing equipment. The fuel behind Larry's passionate fire was a simple belief that still drives our team today: The idea that better, safer, more reliable equipment is the key to unlocking greater adventures.
|For 40 years, the MSR brand has stood for cutting-edge backcountry-gear engineering.
Our passionate fusion of mountaineering and engineering has led to a succession of groundbreaking products—from stoves, tents, and snowshoes to cookware, water filters, purifiers and camp towels—that have revolutionized the outdoor industry.
That’s why MSR gear has been taken on expeditions around the world, standing up, time and time again, to the most demanding situations imaginable.
