The Mont Story

Mont Adventure Equipment has always existed to make something better.

After years of frustrations with the poor quality of adventure clothing & equipment available, Monty had enough & made something better, something he could rely on. In 1978, using his brother’s sewing machine, he made himself a sleeping bag, down jacket & tent. Friends were impressed by his creations, & commissioned pieces.

A reputation for quality gear quickly spread & in 1981 Mont Adventure Equipment was founded.

While Mont has long since outgrown Monty's small unit in Canberra, Australia, he still directs the company & works closely with a passionate team on the design & testing of all Mont products. As dedicated adventurers ourselves, quality is never compromised just to save a few cents.

To this day Mont Adventure Equipment is still privately owned, based in Australia, fiercely independent & totally committed to providing something better for you, the adventurer.

Mont – Trusted in the wild for over 35 years.
