And we have a winner! Joshua tells us the 2.1 tent is a perfect fit for room and weight. He’ll use it for an upcoming trip into the Golden Trout Wilderness. “A few of us will be taking water quality samples, botanical surveys, and wildlife use around the lake,” he told us in the comments. “In addition we are doing trail maintenance work and interaction with users of the trail system.” Thanks Joshua! -Juliette

Mountain Hardwear is a trusted brand for long-lasting outdoor gear. From backpacking tents, backpacks, and jackets to casual hiking clothing, Mountain Hardwear offers top gear for many uses. Keep reading to learn more about this brand and be sure to enter to win the giveaway at the bottom of this post.

Mountain Hardwear was founded in 1993 by a group of individuals who believed anything was possible and that anything worth pursuing in life required challenge. Over the years, the company has made many improvements to outdoors gear. They’ve invented new tent designs, pioneered new fabrics and pushed the limits to make the best gear possible.

Mountain Hardwear Gear

Outdoor enthusiasts know that reaching the summit, completing the thru-hike or leading a new climbing route require a lot of hard work. These challenges we choose to take for the sake of adventure are possible thanks to quality gear from reliable brands like Mountain Hardwear.

I’m heading out on my own thru-hike of the John Muir Trail and I personally chose to carry a Mountain Hardwear backpack for this adventure. The backpack is comfortable, durable and lighter in weight than others I examined. Learn more about our JMT2013 gear here: John Muir Trail Gear List.

    As the mother of an Environmental Science major, there would be a hundred different things I could get for my daughter that would be helpful. She could use clothing for hiking, climbing, or camping. She could use camping gear for camping with the Outdoors Club that they have at her college. With kids in college, things are tight for us so this would be a really nice gift for a kid who has studied so hard in pursuit of a career in helping sustain our environment :)

    I just bought myself a new MH sleeping bag that I love — it’s synthetic but warm and light like down, it’s great. Now I need a big (50L+) but LIGHT women’s internal frame pack to do some backpacking. I’m small so I appreciate the light weight and female-oriented designs.

    Geez, what am I NOT going to do in my Mountain Hardwear product-of-choice? They make so many stellar products, I can’t narrow it down! I already have Mountain Hardwear down booties, a three-season tent, shorts, t-shirts warm jackets, hats….if I were to get a sweet daypack, I’d abuse the heck out of it (because I know it’s rugged enough to take the abuse!) for years! Hunting, backpacking, ski trips, even loading it up with produce on bike trips to the grocery store, or maybe toting a puppy around when he gets tired (yes, I put my Siberian Husky in my pack when he was just a little guy, and on his first backpacking trip – it was unbearably cute!).
    I’m a huge fan of being outdoors, and therefore, I’m a huge fan of Mountain Hardwear. Their gear is dialed in for rugged use, so again, I have to answer your question with a question – what am I NOT going to do with Mountain Hardwear?

    After using some of your gear & clothing for Phantom Ranch/Grand Canyon, Denali/Alaska, and biking routes
    I’ve lost over 50# and pants & jackets are feeling really loose. While I like hiking in somewhat larger sized
    clothing, I guess MH will be getting more or my business. Hydration packs, hiking pants, rain jacket, and thermal pants
    all toughed it out while providing good breathability & warmth. We plan on enjoying more National Parks/Forests in the future. Thank you MH.

    There are numerous products I would want, but a new zonal jacket would suit me in the winter skiing “The Big”, or backcountry skiing the mountains around GNP, and every other season as my pack jacket for hikes above the tree line.

I use the down jacket in the summer as a portable cooler – I wrap the cold water bottles and snacks in it and stow it in my pack. It weighs almost nothing and keeps the water cold for hours. It has come in handy during high altitude hikes, even in the middle of the summer!

    As a longtime backpackers, we’ve had to take a hiatus the last 8 years as our children grew. We own Moutain hardwear tents and sleeping bags already and love the products. Unfortunately our backs have grown older with our children and some gear is just outdated and heavy. We’ve taken the kids on plenty of car camping trips and our 6 and 8 year olds have even completed 2 of the 46 high peaks in NY. I’d love to have some up to date gear that’s lightweight and durable so that we can once again venture into the woods as a family with our weekend on our back. Cheers!

    Well, I have been looking at new smaller tent for easier up and down, but I have also been looking for Back pack for my son as he needs one for his Scout activities. I have heard great things about the Mountain Hardwear and would love to give them a try.

    I could use new gear to help my ventures through the Cascades next summer! Sure would’ve been nice to have a lighter weight tent on the JMT last week..30 miles in two days is killer with all that weight.

    I’d like the ladies jacket so I could ski and walk downtown when it’s cold outside. Love the color too.

    Heading over to the Enchantment Lakes in the central Cascades in Washington and need a new 2 person lightweight tent and ipso facto that nice little Skyledge 2.1 tent seems to workout swimmingly. Probably need to cop it.

    The one piece of Mountain Hardwear gear I have my eye on is the Via Rapida 35 pack as it looks like it may just be the perfect SAR 24-hour pack. I like the versatility that the pack allows – just strip off the waist belt and framesheet for hasty searches and crawling through thick brush. Speaking of which, why does my crew always have to go where there is thick thorn encrusted brambles? Heck, if I wasn’t having fun -I’d complain. Of course, if you are looking at a late night bivy, just add the components back and you have a load carrying pack. Best of all it comes in red! Sweet set up…

    Ooooh, that lightpath 3 would be great for taking the Mrs. on some good ok’ backpacking on the AT. Looks roomy enough I bet I’d still sleep comfortably after she pushes me off my pad in the middle of the night.

    My son and I are section hiking the Long Trail in Vermont. We’ve been at it for the last five years. This year we climbed Mt. Abraham and finished in the Appalachian Gap. The Mountain Hardware gear will get a great work-out next spring when we plan on doing the Camel’s Hump section. I presently have Mountain Hardwear overboots for winter backpacking which I love! Great, quality products. I hope I am lucky enough to win some more Mountain Hardwear gear!

    Use the Seta Gaiter’s multiple times a week on my runs. They are light, water resistant and very useful for keeping debris out of my shoes. Bonus, if shoe-sucking mud, they keep my shoes on my feet!

    They were with me for my first 100 mile race finish (really 103.3 miles) and have been with me for every one of my ultras (and more than one ultra pacing effort).

    My current jacket is getting a bit worn around the edges and doesn’t seem to be as study as I’d like, therefore I’d love to own Item #4486J
    Mountain Hardwear Jovian Jacket – Waterproof (For Men), which would be perfect for day hikes in the mountains or as a great go to jacket for cold days in LA.

    Here in Montana I live in a great spot, just minutes away from glacier park. With Hundreds of small lakes nearby and a view of mountains on all sides of the Flathead valley, there is an unlimited range of places to explore. I have 4 sons that I take out adventuring and we are always looking to replace something. A nice ultralight tent or light weight waterproof jacket could come in handy. New sets of hiking / outdoor pants are also on our agenda. Mountain hardware looks like it has a nice list to choose from

    I LOVE camping and being off the beaten path in rustic campgrounds. The Drifter 4DP looks like a great tent! Big enough for my husband and I, plus a dog or two! Snuggled up in a Mountain Hardware sleeping bag for a good nights sleep and we would be ready to drop a line in that little known fishing hole. Or hike up to the overlook to get a breath taking view. I could go on and on. Spending a day in nature is far superior than being crammed into a city!

    I would want one of the backpacks, and I’d take it for my first overnight/few days hiking trip. I’d explore all the the acres of woods on my father’s property with my new hiking backpack, and I’d pack my heavy duty sleeping bag to get me through the nigh. I’d fit my knives and all the essentials in my backpack, but other than that I’d only come with one pair of clothes to better fit my tools so that I’d be prepared for my few nights in the “wild.” It’d be a blast. My backpack is not really up to my dream trip.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    The 2.1 tent would be a perfect fit for room and weight. I would use it for my up coming trip into the Golden Trout Wilderness where a few of us will be surveying. We will be taking water quality samples, botanical surveys, and wildlife use around the lake. In addition we are doing trail maintenance work and interaction with users of the trail system.
