Mountainsmith Opens new Headquarters in Golden, CO

March 31, 2022

Golden, CO (March 2022) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Mountainsmith, a Golden, Colorado based company that has spent more than 40 years as a leading gear manufacturer specializing in durable goods for hiking and camping, has opened a new headquarters in the historic city they were founded in. This will be home to their offices, sales, product design, and showroom-style retail space.

Mountainsmith has always been committed to providing outdoor enthusiasts with durable gear that can withstand the rigors of any backcountry pursuit. Celebrated for a pioneering spirit that led to a series of breakthrough designs for backcountry adventurers in the 1980s and 1990s, Mountainsmith has long been hailed for its lumbar packs, backpacks, trekking poles, tents and more which made the city of Golden, Colorado a perfect match. Located at the gateway to a handful of 14,000 foot Rocky Mountain peaks, the company’s new location is perfect for refining and innovating their products while also connecting with a community that is heavily invested in the adventure spirit of the mountains.

The offices can be found in a red brick building that has cycled through four companies since 1988; Mountainsmith is here to stay and excited to embrace the community. Located two blocks from the clear creek trail, surrounded by a handful of breweries, coffee shops and restaurants, while also being less than a half mile from the Colorado School of Mines, Mountainsmith is excited to engage and contribute to the growing city.

“We are really excited about the location of our new offices. Mountainsmith has been in Golden since its beginnings in 1979, and this new location allows us a better opportunity to be a part of this vibrant community,” said Mountainsmith General Manager Jonathan McFarland. “Our location gives us great access to everything downtown has to offer such as restaurants, breweries, trails and the creek. It’s awesome for us as employees, it will also allow us to create new connections and friends from the increased foot traffic we should see.”

Mountainsmith also is proud to continue their Forged for Life Guarantee which means if a product bought from them fails in any way they will replace or repair it. Mountainsmith prides themselves on longevity and durability, meaning their gear is meant to last a lifetime, making sure they’re with you for all of your adventures.

“Our main objective at Mountainsmith is to make gear that functions and is built to last. Our lifetime guarantee is one way we support our customer’s and stand behind this mission of ours,” McFarland said. Nothing makes us happier than to help a customer get new life from a product they bought years ago. With a usually simple fix we can get it back to them for hopefully many more miles of adventures.”
