(Golden, CO) – Mountainsmith—craftsmen of iconic backcountry equipment and recreational outdoor gear— is set to launch 8 new tent and shelter designs at Outdoor Retailer’s Summer Market on August 3rd. The new designs will fall in line with Mountainsmith’s 2016 tent roster this coming January, bringing a wide range of shelter options to the consumer market place, and offering designs for the experienced backpacker to the car camping enthusiast and everyone in between.
For a winter 2017 launch, Mountainsmith will be releasing the Bear Creek and Morrison EVO tent series, a Conifer 5+ redesign, as well as their new Mountain Shade Tarp and Mountain Shade Dome shelters. These new shelters will be introduced alongside Mountainsmith’s existing tents at the beginning of next year, bolstering the brand’s line of incredibly durable backcountry and car camping shelters for 2017.
The designs are loaded with brand new features including brow poles, rain/wind catch flaps on window openings, more interior space and, as always, Mountainsmith’s best in class Poly Urethane coatings for improved durability and weather resistance.
“Our push in 2017 to further expand our tent and shelter assortment truly rounds out the Mountainsmith offering for our customers and retail partners,” says Luke Boldman, Mountainsmith’s Lead Product Designer. “From lightweight tarp shelters and festival camping options to spacious family tents and backcountry bungalows (all backed by our Forged For Life guarantee) we’re excited to allow our customers to chase the outdoors no matter the situation or location.”
