giveaway mountain standard shopping spree 201710232604sl

Based out of Boulder, Colorado, one of the world’s epicenters for mountain climbing, trekking, hiking, and generally just hanging around at elevation, Mountain Standard offers high-quality, durable outdoor gear and goods for lower prices than can be found most anywhere else. They are able to undercut bigger brands on pricing without skimping on craftsmanship by offering a direct to consumer sales model. There are no retail outlets for Mountain Standard, only the wild world of the web. And that’s the way they like it. With little overhead, Mountain Standard is able to fill the need for affordable outdoor gear that still has the functionality and performance of those larger outfitters.

With spring in full swing in most parts of the country, getting outdoors is going to become more and more of a priority for many of The Manual’s readers. But inevitably with each new outdoor season, new gear is required to replace the old, worn, and torn. We want to help you with that. And thanks to our friends at Mountain Standard, you now have the chance at winning a $250 shopping spree to prove that you don’t need a lot of money to get outdoors and experience nature. Sign up to win below and be part of Mountain Standard’s #RIMBY (Right In My Back Yard) spirit.

Here’s what $250 from MS can get you (with money to spare):
