“MSR has the most comprehensive stove offering on the market. They don’t have a good, better best solution but, rather, they make the most innovative products designed for different types of users in the field,” Sanders said.” I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with a company that focuses so clearly on engineering the highest quality products on the market. I’m excited to help uphold that reputation and further the stove offering for a range of outdoor enthusiasts.”

Sanders has jumped right in and is working alongside MSR’s engineers, executive team and marketers at the MSR headquarters and manufacturing facility in Seattle, WA.
