Once a one-man mission and eventually a world-renowned outdoor goods company, MSR has grown from auspicious beginnings to the respected trusted brand it is today. Producing some of the best camping and outdoor gear available, MSR is a brand preferred by experts and novices alike, with a strong focus on innovation and safety alike.
Originally formed as a newsletter promoting safe climbing practices, Mountain Safety Research was the brainchild of Larry Penberthy in 1969. His passion for preaching safety to the masses led to his development of better and safer gear, eventually transitioning his pet project into a version of the MSR we know and love today. These days, the same fervor that pushed Larry to start the MSR movement exists, with a humble team working to continually push innovations to an industry it loves.
With MSR, the outdoors can truly be your home away from home. Industry leading stoves are light and practical in nearly any conditions, with a variety of tents made to fit and function whatever size group you're trekking with. MSR was built from a love for safety, so all of their gear is produced with that in mind. From snowshoes and poles to lights and ice axes, every piece that MSR designs is fashioned with your well-being in mind, giving you the best possible experience with a product that'll last the test of time.
The MSR mission stays true today, the same as it always has. Hard work and reliable products are the lifeblood of MSR, made just as you deserve. Challenge yourself out there. MSR will be along for the ride.
