About Mountain Equipment
Mountain Equipment has a deep passion for exploring wild places and mountains and they are only too aware that this pursuit comes with its own very specific pressures. They have taken on a mission to provide the very best gear in order that their customers can experience those magical moments out in nature with all the protection, support and comfort that they need.
Since 1961, Mountain Equipment has been learning by doing. The company began just over 60 years ago, and since then they have not just been in the lab testing out new methods of manufacturing their kit. They have also been out there in the wilds, climbing the world's highest peaks; supporting climbers on new uncharted routes; helping people to set new world records to the North and South Poles, and doing it all because it is not just a job but a life-long passion. Through all these experiences, Mountain Equipment has been building on its own knowledge. They have experienced this world in all its natural extremities and these experiences have fed into the unbelievable quality of the gear that they are able to offer.
Men's trousers and jackets
From top to bottom, you will be able to prepare for the mountain with our collection of Mountain Equipment's men's clothing. Mountain Equipment offers reliable, hardy, comfortable and breathable clothing, topped off with impressive attention to detail.
Take Mountain Equipment's jackets, a brilliant thing about many of their designs is their versatility. You will be able to wear many of these layers throughout the year: they will be protective enough in the colder conditions, whilst they will not cause you to overheat if needed in the warmer months. On top of that, climbers and hikers will welcome the level of mobility that these layers cater to.
There is also much to be explored in the women's Mountain Equipment clothing collection. Whether you need a fleece jacket, bottoms, heavy-duty jackets or lighter jackets, we have you covered. Our collection brings together clothing that we know will pass the test on the mountain, and Mountain Equipment's range passes with flying colours. So, you can rest assured that you are choosing from a selection of high-quality clothing.
Mountain Equipment hats, gloves & other accessories
There are lots of other smaller items of clothing and accessories which can be just as essential when taking on the great outdoors. Hats and gloves for example are items that provide great warmth with little impact on carrying weight. Mountain Equipment hats and gloves have been made with materials that are fast-drying, so that you won't have to worry about becoming damp, which is all important when you are out in the elements. As well as hats, there are other items of headwear from Mountain Equipment that are also very useful in certain conditions, such as headbands and balaclavas. The microfleece headbands for example will be ideal to add a bit of warmth and reduce exposure of the ears on chilly ski days or hikes. The balaclavas meanwhile are a particularly good option for sub-zero conditions.
