ISPO Award Winner: Diverter Bib

ISPO Gold Award Winner: Hydra Lite Glove

“We are honored by these awards that recognize that the little things can make a big difference,” said Topher Gaylord, President of Mountain Hardwear. “Thinking outside the box led us to create the Optic 2.5 tent with two doors on adjoining sides, which changes the whole experience of camping.”

At last week’s Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2014 tradeshow in Salt Lake City, Mountain Hardwear’s Spring 2014 Optic 2.5 tent with a 180-degree view was honored with a Backpacker magazine Editors’ Choice award as a standout among hundreds of products tested by the publication’s gear editors.

Also at ORWM 14, Gear Junkie presented Mountain Hardwear’s Super Compressor Hooded Jacket with a Best in Show Award, for its “new take on the synthetic puffy that ricochets body heat unlike anything else on the market.”

This week, the ISPO award organization honored two of Mountain Hardwear’s Fall 2014 products. The Diverter Bib was named a Winner in the Outdoor Outer Layer segment and the Hydra Lite Glove was named a Gold Winner in the Outdoor Gloves segment.

Additionally, Mountain Hardwear has recently been honored by:
• Gear Junkie – Top Gear of the Year 2013: Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket
• FeedTheHabit – Gear of the Year 2013: Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket
• TrailRunner Magazine – Gear of the Year 2013: Way2Cool Tank
