Today, MSR is a diverse, global company dedicated to developing reliable outdoor products for committed backcountry users. Their dedication to reliable and well-designed gear has led them to introduce revolutionary new products, improve existing products and even reinvent the old. The result is a line of products that set the benchmark for outdoor equipment design.
