Mountain Safety Research Gear - MSR

In 1969, Seattle engineer and lifelong mountaineer Larry Penberthy formed Mountain Safety Research as a one-man crusade dedicated to improving the safety of climbing equipment. The fuel behind Larry's passionate fire was a simple belief that still drives our team today:

The idea that better, safer, more reliable equipment is the key to unlocking greater adventures.

From that notion evolved a pioneering outdoor company whose innovations have revolutionized the way people experience the outdoors worldwide. Today, we're a close-knit team still obsessed with designing the most reliable, high-performance gear possible, using our knowledge of engineering and science to find better solutions to the challenges of the mountains.

MSR’s founder, Larry Penberthy, wasn’t just a tech-minded engineer, he was also a passionate outdoorsman. He knew that having respect for the outdoors was one of the best ways to preserve these precious wild places. To him, this meant building his gear to last as long as possible, so that excess resources needn’t be used up to replace it. That dedication to conservation is still alive at our company today.
MSR strives to leave an increasingly positive handprint on the world in which we create and use our outdoor products, and their annual Sustainability Report outlines their responsible actions to date and their path for the future. They are committed to minimizing the social and environmental impacts of our products, suppliers, and operations through better materials, safer chemicals, and smarter packaging.
