The Project

To develop the next generation of alpine gear, Ueli Steck teamed up with Mountain Hardwear designers to create the ultimate speed-mountaineering kit: a system of apparel and equipment that’s not just lighter than anything available today, but designed with a simplicity and efficiency of function tailored to Steck’s style.
