MSR are all about creating better, safer and more reliable gear that enables us to explore further and get the absolute most out of every adventure.
MSR began with climbing equipment, specifically for the alpine environment and then added stoves, tents, backpacks and water filters to round out their product portfolio which has since supported countless boundary-pushing global expeditions.
It all started in 1969 when lifelong mountaineer Larry Penberthy discovered that the gear he was using was underperforming in the field. So, he founded Mountain Safety Research with the goal of making safety and ease-of-use at the forefront of every product they designed.
Over fifty years on, MSR are known for their cutting-edge engineering, consistently producing outdoor products that adventurers can rely on in extreme conditions all over the world.
In demanding environments, the US military approved Guardian Purifier is the gold standard for purifying water. Using a hollow fibre cartridge, it removes viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and sediment so you don’t have to use further treatment.
Fully field maintainable, the MiniWorks EX Microfilter is designed to be used regularly for long-lasting water filtration, making it the perfect solution for those who hike frequently.
The compact TrailShot filter requires no setup, can be used one-handed and fits into your pocket making it ideal for trail runners and trekkers on the move.
Fuel efficient, with the ability to to boil water and melt snow quickly, and unmatched wind protection for challenging conditions – the Reactor stove has been a best-seller since 2007.
