George Marks and Bob Swanson started Sierra designs 40 years ago to design outdoor equipment that enhanced the wilderness experience. Over the years, they have created mountains of new products and technologies that have traveled to the highest peaks, withstood 230 mph winds, stood in the face of horrendous downpours and beat the odds of mother nature. Why? Because at Sierra Design, they know that better products make the outdoor experience so much more enjoyable. Simply the best gear for backpacking, camping and all your outdoor adventures.
