FLEAKIN' OUT WITH mountain standard
Mountain Standard focuses on the necessities, with subtle updates. Their products are not designed around nostalgia or alpine tradition; they're are motivated by clean, timeless, versatile designs with just the right amount of technology and functionality. The brand offers a handful of necessary products instead of a glut of mediocre ones. Most simply… the mountain standards.
What does Mountain standard mean to you?
For us, it’s about the friends, the group, the community…the crew. It’s about laughing, learning, hurting, eating, drinking, teaching and being on the road heading towards something to be explored. It’s about making sure everyone has each other’s back and at the same time pushing each other.
It’s being open minded enough to understanding other’s perspectives and finding common ground in our passions and pursuits.
It’s about chasing the Dream Seasons around our region that are dictated by what the weather is doing and what the terrain has to offer.
It’s about coming home smelling like campfire smoke and maple syrup with dirt under your fingernails. It’s the stoke from these trips that keeps us going until the next one.
