Five decades of equipping expeditions for the harshest conditions on earth
We've participated in every British first ascent of an 8000m peak, been part of more than 175 Everest summits by International Mountain Guides and Sherpas and equipped unsupported trips to the North and South Poles.
Whether you're on expedition to the Himalaya or learning the ropes in North Wales, you can be safe in the knowledge that your Mountain Equipment gear is proven to perform. We design, test and build our gear with passion and commitment. We use it ourselves, and we work closely with outdoor professionals to help us perfect our products.
Our Pro Partners are some of the most talented and ambitious climbers, mountaineers and polar expeditionists in the world; people at the cutting edge who need gear they can trust completely. Watch our film to find out more about the journey that our partners have taken Mountain Equipment on since we began back in 1961.
Our sleeping bags have travelled unsupported to both poles, been on every British first ascent of an 8000m peak and been used on well over 100 Everest Expeditions.
In fact, every night of the year, somewhere in the world, someone is sleeping comfortably inside a Mountain Equipment sleeping bag.
This has resulted in an unsurpassed amount of data and feedback from people experienced in sleeping in real-world conditions, the analysis of which has made today's range of Mountain Equipment sleeping bags our best ever.
So confident are we that our sleeping bags will keep your warm and comfortable, in addition to the EN13537 laboratory ratings we quote, you will now see that every Mountain Equipment sleeping bag comes with a separate 'A Good Night's Sleep Guaranteed' temperature rating from a combination of scientific testing, countless field trials and exhaustive expedition testing, this temperature rating provides an indication as to the minimum temperature that we feel the bag should be comfortable to for an experienced user.
