In 1969, Seattle engineer and lifelong mountaineer Larry Penberthy formed Mountain Safety Research (MSR) as a one-man crusade dedicated to improving the safety of climbing equipment. The fuel behind Larry's passionate fire was a simple belief that still drives the team today:

The idea that better, safer, more reliable equipment is

the key to unlocking greater adventures.

From that notion evolved a pioneering outdoor company whose innovations have revolutionized the way people experience the outdoors worldwide.

At MSR, work engineers, tinkers and passionate outdoor users–each with strong perspectives on how a product should work based on own experiences in the wild places. Innovative solutions are bred by challenging convention, and functionality, simplicity and reliability are the governing elements of enduring design.

Today, many MSR products are still hand-built on manufacturing lines just a floor below where we concept them.
