OK, OK, full disclosure. Garage Grown Gear’s founder, Amy Hatch, is an ambassador for Hyperlite Mountain Gear. But there is a reason why. Their Cuben fiber packs and shelters are super lightweight, extremely high quality and comfortable to use and wear. Plus, all of Hyperlite Mountain Gear’s products are made in Maine.
Earlier this year, we posted a discussion with Hyperlite Mountain Gear’s Founder Mike St. Pierre. Here are a few of our favorite quotes from him:
“Instead of adding bells and whistles to backpacking products – things people really don’t need – to drive our bottom dollar, I would rather maintain the lightweight philosophy and expand that philosophy into other outdoor disciplines.”
“HMG started because I was looking for a way to reduce my overall gear weight for backpacking trips but, at the time, was unable to find what I was looking for at big box stores.”
“It was a lot of trial and error. I still have boxes of old Cuben fiber tarps and prototypes I could never sell.”
