  • My daughter is a college student, enrolled in an environmental science program. She recently went on a winter camping trip and we had to go to the local university to rent a Mountain Hardwear tent so she would be protected from the elements. She also had to borrow a -20 sleeping bag from the local boy scout troop. It would be really nice if she could have some gear of her own so she doesn’t have to scramble just to ensure that she will be safe and warm. She is an incredible kid and a great student and I would love to reward her for all of her hard work over the past several years. Her ultimate goal is to change the world and you guys could go far in assisting her to reach this goal. Thank you!

    I also shared this on my facebook page:

  • A group of 4 old friends who haven’t all been together in 7 years is planning a “reunion tour” near/on the AT (southwestern VA/western NC) this summer that will include taking our daughters (ages 3-4) hiking & camping. Given that we all work in education our “spare income” is a bit tight after fuel, food, etc.

    I’d love to be able to “hand out” Mountain Hardwear gear to everyone going and be able to share the giveaway story along with our trip highlights! All that to say we could use any 3 Season camping gear you see fit to offer (1 of the guys has no camping gear at all). Thanks!!

  • We just joined a Nordic club that has a yurt in the Unitas. My girlfriends and I are going to hike/snowshoe in for a night with our kids. So many MH items would be great for this! You guys do great gear and all….but my favorite summer dress is Mountain Hardwear. Nice Work!

  • I can’t wait to get outside again! Northeastern Utah still has so much snow! We are going to do camping and hiking here in the Uintah Mountains, and we are also going to hike Goblin Valley and Red Castle this summer. Very excited!

  • I’ve stepped away from the work force in order to go back to school. To some extent, life is on hold, but it’s very hard to put my love of the outdoors on hold–especially since I have got my family hooked on the backcountry too.

    Mountain Hardwear is one of my favorite manufacturers of outdoor gear. Every product is top-notch, and their lineup can outfit those summiting Denali just as comfortably as those–like me–simply sneaking away from the urban bustle for the weekend.

    Beyond merely cherishing my outdoor gear, I would love me some Mountain Hardwear to round out the family’s kit. I wonder what Mountain Hardwear has for newborns…

  • I actually don’t own any mountain hardware, but I would absolutely wear the crap out of it if I won. I like #1 and #4. I would use both for the outdoor activities that I’m obsessed with. They are: cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and biking (both road and mountain biking.)
    I promise that if I win this I would be awesome advertisement for your product. Pick me pretty please!
    And I’m going to share this giveaway on Facebook now.

  • I plan to use Mountain Hardware while backpacking in the Sawtooths or Frank Church Wilderness this summer. We usually spend three days & two nights each trip.

  • Mountain Hardwear rocks the billy! Keeps me ward with my Trango 3.1 and easy on my back with my Lightpath 2 and dry with my paclite jacket…

  • I’m looking to run on, over, and around the Blue Ridge Mountains here in Virginia. Mountain Hardwear will help keep me warm and confident in the process!

  • Awesome way to culminate a long hard strenuous week of work and responsibilities. I know the kids would love the outdoors this gear would really make a great addition to our family.

  • I would get outside and do some backpacking with my oldest daughter with some new MH gear. I love MH gear. So well made and with smart features.

  • If I won some Mountain Hardwear gear, I would use it while I was hiking the entirety of the Appalachian Trail in a year’s time, and also throughout the many hikes I would do in preparation for the AT. Not to mention every other day of the year where the weather would call for it!

  • My parents entered this contest, trying to win some gear for me and I hope it’s ok that I enter too. I am an 18 year old senior in high school and am enrolled at one of the greenest colleges in the nation beginning fall 2013. I will be pursuing an environmental science degree because my life is centered around the outdoors. From fishing and trap shooting in the spring, to running and climbing in the summer, to cross country in the fall, to Nordic skiing and ice camping in the winter, I like to do it all. Every activity requires special gear and, coming from a large family, I have had to work hard to get the small amount of gear that I have.

    I learned the importance of good quality gear on a February trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. For those who haven’t been there, it is an incredibly beautiful place where no motorized vehicles are allowed. Rangers patrol on dogsled and Nordic skis. Wildlife is abundant and the stars light up the sky for miles. Our campsite was a 3 mile trek on snowshoes, each of us pulling sleds holding a week’s worth of food and gear. It was a week none of us will ever forget. The temps at night got down to 27 below zero and, thankfully, I was able to borrow decent gear so I stayed warm inside 2 mummy bags. On Saturday night, we sat outside around the campfire and realized not only the beauty of this place but also the potential danger of temps so low.

    If I was lucky enough to win a piece of Mountain Hardwear gear, I would use it one of my return trips to the BWCA. That way, I won’t have to scramble to find something to give me adequate protection from the elements. At this point, I have two future trips planned… one in June before all of my friends leave for college or the military and one in August with a group from the local community college. I am also hoping to squeeze in a trip on winter break because nothing beats camping on a frozen lake with your ice fishing hole within walking distance. Nothing.

    Thank you guys so much for holding this contest. If nothing else, it has helped those who have entered to think about the outdoors and why it is so important to all of us. I hope whoever wins truly enjoys their gear or uses it to help pass on their love of the outdoors to their children. The environment is a resource that we can’t afford to destroy and maybe if more of us are out there enjoying it’s beauty, we can band together and keep that from happening.

    As soon as I post this, I will share it on my facebook page. I don’t want to share that link in public, but if you email me, I can send you the link. Thank you (:

  • I will use my Mountain Hardware gear to camp at the Boulder Field on Long’s Peak in August and then summit the next day. Good gear is gear that you don’t have to think about…leaving your focus for what’s important. To summit all up…Mountain Hardware rocks ;)!
