Millet began operating in France in the 1930s. The company has a storied history that begins with shopping bags, moves to backpacks, and continues to this day on a journey to produce reliable mountaineering gear, centering around their renowned backpacks.
Millet has been among the most innovative companies when it comes to backpacks, they were the first to adopt nylon, tubular straps and have been involved with Gore-tex since its inception.
Still made in France, Millet has expanded their product lines over the years to include jackets, protective shells, ropes, shoes… basically if you need it to get to the top of a mountain and back, Millet makes it. The only thing they don’t make is the strength of spirit and the resolve necessary to push yourself thousands of feet above sea level, but their gear has been known to give users a confidence boost, even if its only because of the compliments you’ll get at base camp.
