FREMONT, CALIF. (October 8, 2009) – Brooks-Range Mountaineering Equipment, a manufacturer of high-quality backcountry and mountaineering equipment, announced today that sales for the privately held company have grown 47% over 2008. These positive results are a direct effect of its commitment to provide a high level of customer service and introduction of innovative products. In addition to an expanded collection of products that reflect the consumer's needs in the backcountry, a key factor in Brooks-Range's growth can also be attributed to the company's flagship line of products – the Brooks-Range Rescue Sleds. This tried and true product line of four rescue sleds was one of the company's first products and continues to exceed sales expectations. Other products that have launched sales in this upward manner include the All-In-One Map Tools™ and Ultralite Tarps™.

“We are grateful to both our brick and mortar and online retailers who have given us a chance to showcase our products,” said Matt Brooks, President of Brooks-Range. “We are excited about our new accounts that have given us a vote of confidence as we continue to grow the Brooks-Range brand and offer more products for the outdoor user. We will continue to put 100% of our energy into providing retailers with the right tools they need to build their businesses and to cater to the outdoor consumer who is looking for quality products that will keep them safe and comfortable in the great outdoors.”

The 2009/2010 season is underway with a variety of new products from Brooks-Range including: avalanche probes; apparel; outerwear; a new Rocket Tent, a four-season tent which only weighs 1.6 ounces; an Elephant Foot ¾ sleeping bag; folding snow saws; snow density gauges; among others.
