New Gear From MSR (Mountain Safety Research) This Season

The award-winning MSR Lighting Series Snowshoe provide a patented design of unbeatable 360-degree traction, shaving roughly a half-pound of weight off the average competitor and is specifically tuned to both male and female gaits to allow for a more natural stride. Lightning Ascent models are engineered for demanding use on steep & challenging terrain, while the Lightning models are built for all-condition performance on flat & rolling terrain. All models available in men's & women's 22 and 25 inches, plus a 30 inch model in the Lightning Ascent.

The new MSR Reactor Stove System is the fastest-boiling, most fuel-efficient all-condition stove system ever, able to boil 1 liter of water in less than 3 minutes. It combines a state-of-the art stove and high-efficiency 1.7 liter pot into one compact easy to-use unit. It also boasts an internal pressure regulator that ensures consistent flame output in all conditions.

MSR (Mountain Safety Research) - Their Specialties

Mountain Safety Research® started nearly 40 years ago, calling attention to the inadequate equipment standards of the day. Refusing to accept 'good enough' as a design philosophy, we created a new standard of 'best possible' that resulted in the creation of ground-breaking technologies with unprecedented reliability and function in absolutely essential equipment for outdoor travel. From climbers, to boaters and weekend campers, MSR equipment became the new gold standard. Our commitment stands unchanged today and MSR® remains an industry leader in the development and production of the most reliable and innovative high-performance gear on the market. From hyper-efficient stoves, and water filters to cutting edge tents, revolutionary snowshoes and beyond – we continue to provide even the most demanding backcountry users a confidence-inspiring tool kit for the task at hand.
