River Tested Gear Guide + Giveaway

River Tested


At Mountain House we believe that the right ingredients matter. We keep this close to heart as we develop new meals in our kitchen so that our customers can travel light and eat well always. And we extend the same philosophy to our personal outdoor gear so that we can savor the adventure, without being bogged down by unnecessary (or inadequate!) gear. Invest in what works, and enjoy the peace of mind of being well fed and appropriately outfitted for adventure.

We hit the river over Memorial Day weekend to put some gear to the test. So if you’ve been searching for the next key ingredients to add to your adventure closet (or a great gift for a Dad or Grad!), follow along on Instagram and Facebook for featured reviews. We’ll be highlighting the following items:

  • Bushcrafter 162  (Benchmade)
  • 35L Hydraulic Bag (Sea to Summit)
  • Sprint Dry Pack (Sea to Summit)
  • Tek Towel, Large (Sea to Summit
  • Black Spider Hoody (NW Alpine)
  • Mountain Nirvana Trucker Hat (NW Alpine)
  • Newport EVO H2 and Whisper water sandals (KEEN)


Gear guides are simply more fun when you have a shot at winning the featured items. Right? Yep. So here’s the deal: One lucky winner is going to win EVERYTHING* we listed above, PLUS a Mountain House branded Hydroflask, PLUS the most popular sporks in the world, PLUS a Mountain House Just in Case…® 4 Day Food Supply.

* winner’s choice of either the KEEN Newport EVO H2 or Whisper, not both


It’s super easy. Head to Instagram or Facebook (or both!) to follow the participating brands that we’ve tagged in our posts. Then come back here to confirm your entry. Contest is open to US residents 18 and older. Winner will be drawn on 6/15.
