Mountainsmith continues to build their vintage 'Roots Collection'
Publish date:

Golden, CO – Mountainsmith – craftsmen of iconic backcountry equipment and recreational outdoor gear – debuts the Trippin Series as the newest addition to their vintage Roots Collection at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market this month (Booth #: 44080-UL). Featuring the NEW Trippin Pack, Trippin Sling, and Trippin Pouch, and bold new colorways for the Trippin Fanny, this pack series will take you and your gear around the town or around the world in retro-aesthetic style. Products set to hit retailers nationwide in January 2019.

“Piggybacking off the success of the Trippin Fanny that hit the market in 2018, we poured over our historical content library and came away excited to expand on this concept. In 2019, we offer a collection of 70’s and 80’s inspired styles and colors that honor our past while offering our retail partners and customers a fun blast from the past,” says Jay Getzel, Mountainsmith president on the additions to the retro-inspired collection. “The Trippin Series offers something for any consumer looking for a poppy way to travel, hit to the local brewpub or rock out at the next music festival.”

From the start in 1979, Mountainsmith helped shape 80’s pack design, based on the experiences, adventures and lifestyle of legendary outdoorsman and Mountainsmith founder, Patrick Smith. The ‘Roots Collection’ has epitomized this heritage since 2016, featuring new designs on favored 90’s classics. Today, Mountainsmith introduces bold new colors and retro design with the Trippin Series. Inspired by the same designs and stories of the 80s, this series’ CORDURA® material holds homage to Mountainsmith’s trademark durability, while each style represents Mountainsmith’s influence on backpacks and lumbar packs over the years. The Trippin’ Series celebrates the Mountainsmith heritage, but revamps it for a modern lifestyle.

Trippin Pack | MSRP: $59.95 Founded in 1979, Mountainsmith helped shape ‘80s pack design. In 2019, we bring back the now retro look with the Trippin Pack, built for commuters, day-long adventurers and summer concert goers.

Trippin Sling | MSRP: $39.95 Founded in 1979, Mountainsmith’s iconic lumbar styles helped influence the growth of over-the-shoulder sling bags. In 2019, we bring back the now retro look with the Trippin Sling, built for commuting and everyday carry.

Trippin Pouch | MSRP: $24.95 Founded in 1979, Mountainsmith’s iconic lumbar styles helped influence the style of now retro outdoor gear. In 2019, we introduce the Trippin Pouch for everyday carry, concerts, and mountain living.

Trippin Fanny | MSRP: $27.95 40 years after introducing the first lumbar pack, we’re celebrating with a retro throwback built to endure a lifetime of concerts, festivals, and summer adventures.
