We design and manufacture premium, durable outdoor products for a range of adventures. The idea for the company began in 2008 when founder, Mike St. Pierre began modifying and designing his gear with a goal of reducing weight. As an outdoor enthusiast, he would escape the streets of New York City and head to the mountains every chance he had. By looking at both product design and the materials used in manufacturing he learned about Spectra, Dyneema, and Cuben Fiber (CTF³). He purchased some of these materials, built a prototype and Hyperlite Mountain Gear was born!
In 2011, HMG was selected as one of the winners of a contest sponsored by Google and American Express in support of Small Business Saturday. Watch this YouTube video to see why!
We continue to expand our product range and material choices to meet the demands our customers who are pushing the edge of lightweight adventures.
Our Mission is to be the ‘Leaders in Lightweight’, by embracing innovations in materials technology and a shift to a simpler, refined approach to how you go in to the outdoors. HMG is committed to conducting the exhaustive research and development that is required to make lightweight gear that is durable and comfortable, contributing to the increased enjoyment of your sport.
