CALLING THOSE WHO LIKE TO GO A LITTLE OFF ROUTE
When our founders established the Bay as our base back in 1993, Mountain Hardwear was destined for a life of play. They wanted to make equipment and apparel that climbers and mountaineers could depend on but they wanted to have fun doing it, too. We bring the same stoke we have in the mountains to the drawing board.
