Mountain Hardware makes products designed for backcountry sports such as fishing, backpacking, climbing, mountaineering and skiing. Mountain Hardware stepped in outdoor gear, in 1993, making sure to mark each of your products with your company name and a stylized nut.
Identifying Mountain Hardware products, such as down sleeping bags, is to find the nut-tell tale logo, with the name of the company.
1 Hold the top of the sleeping bag and look at the top next to the zipper (some zip bags are left aside and others zip right side.)
2 Find the name embroidered or traced Mountain and stylized nut Hardware identify the sleeping bag as a Mountain Hardware. The logo itself is not a good way to identify the age of the bag, however, since it did not suffer major changes since your creation.
3 Take your foot off the sleeping bag and locate the tag identifier where cleanliness and legal information is printed.Find the model name on the bag. Names like Lydell, Merced or Ghost will be in older bags because they are 2000 and earlier models. The Mountain Hardware Nickel cigar was one of the first sleeping bags made by the company, which dates back to 1995.
4 Check the screen for any fading or weathering, indicating that it is an older model.
Mountain hardware products are built to withstand heavy use outback. Some bags have screen printing logos and other embroidery; or, if you do not see the logo and name, is not a sleeping bag Mountain Hardware.
