Mountain Hardwear's Mission Project kicks off!
by John Wilder
Mountain Hardwear's Mission Project: test both yourself and our gear, tell fellow adventurers about it, and enter to win great prizes, including the gear hog's Holy Grail, a guided trip up Mt. Rainier and $2,000 shopping spree.
Redpoint that pesky climb. Bag Colorado's 14ers in a single summer. Knock out 30,000 vert in 30 days at your climbing gym (hopefully not all to the same song). Nail your first triathlon. Escape on a point-to-point backpack trip. Clean Moab's Slickrock Trail. Whatever you do, take your Mountain Hardwear gear, put it through its paces, and tell our customers how it performed. That's how we got our start, and we want you to do the same.
Why on the blog? So you can share our passion for the outdoors -- and Mountain Hardwear's innovation, reliability, and quality -- with others, tell your stories, post photos and more. Blog visitors will be able to see first hand how our tents, sleeping bags, backpacks and other gear helped you reach your goal.
Best yet, your accomplishment isn't your only reward. We'll be awarding monthly Mountain Hardwear prizes for the top submissions, with those winners going into a pool for three first-place prizes (awarded in May, September and December) and one Grand Prize.
Prizes:Monthly: A piece of Mountain Hardwear gear (could be a jacket, pack, sleeping bag or tent) and a limited edition sweatshirt
First-place: $1,000 Mountain Hardwear shopping spree at an authorized Mountain Hardwear outdoor retailer
Grand Prize: Guided mountaineering trip up Mt. Rainier, plus $2,000 Mountain Hardwear shopping spree at RMI (complete with personal shopper guidance provided by Peter Whittaker). Winner announced during first week of January 2008
How It Works:
* Simply set a goal and achieve it, and then post your entry on our blog (blog.mountainhardwear.com), explaining your accomplishment and role your Mountain Hardwear gear played (photos of gear in use strongly encouraged)
* Winners will be based on the level of accomplishment and creativity of endeavor, judged by our esteemed Mountain Hardwear panel. Please use your best judgment in executing your mission, and always put safety first.
Important: No purchase necessary. Open to legal residents of the U.S. and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are 18 or older. Contest runs from February 1, 2007 to December 31, 2007.

|mountain hardwear is the best clothing company ever, I wore a wicked tee and it helped me flash a sick boulder problem. Another time I wore my chugach 3d jacket to school for a test I didn't study for and I aced it, thankyou mountain hardwear, not only do you help me with school and climbing, but you are gracious enough to place logos all over my jacket so everyone knows why I am soooooo coool!|
I have to agree with "unroot". Mountain hardware is truely hardcore gear. I've used my windstopper pants and jacket many a day to keep me warm while sending peaks or scoping out route to rock climb.
I also love to two hat I have for keeping the ole noggin warm, as I tend to keep the hair cropped pretty short.
Now to get one of Epic jackets and Syncro jackets and I'll be so set for wet weather. Still considering getting a syncro for wet weather building conditions while my crew slogs it out in yellow plastic/rubber rain suites that are as miserable as the weather. Just a bit worried about durability around the construction site.
