“As a professional mountain guide for the past thirty years and learning from my father and uncle who were among the first Americans to lead summits on three highest peaks in the world -- Everest, K2 and Kanchenjunga -- I know that gear choices can mean the difference between success and failure on the mountain. With this new site, we are simplifying the shopping experience and highlighting the recommendations of our guide team so that customers can make the best gear decisions to maximize safety and comfort.” Peter Whittaker
