About this project

As mountain enthusiasts, we need and want high performance products. But why does technical apparel need to look so technical? At the American Mountain Co., we believe it doesn’t. We combine all of the technology and performance you need and want with a look that will set you apart from the rest.

What makes us different

  • Made in the USA
  • Classic style
  • Technology
  • Performance
  • Quality
  • Guaranteed for life

The American Mountain Co. crafts the finest mountain wear available. Our products are created with an unwavering obsession for every aspect of performance, quality, functionality, and design; blending both classic style and optimum performance, while leaving neither lacking.

About

The American Mountain Co. began with one goal, to make the finest mountain wear available. That goal will never change. We have been climbing and mountaineering practically our entire lives and have developed a deep passion for the mountains. We recently noticed the high degree of uniformity that is present in the products that let us pursue the rigorous mountain sports we love. Everything made by the big brands is nearly identical. A quick look at store racks will confirm this. We are going to do things differently. We are taking a fresh look at everything allowing The American Mountain Co. to bring you unparallelled technology and performance combined with a classic style, while leaving nothing lacking.

Manufacturing right here in the USA

Today you would be hard-pressed to find mountain wear made in America. We demand better. Like many of the other great Kickstarter projects we are committed to helping create jobs in the USA, meaning our mountain wear will always be made in America.

Americans used to make things and it is about time we do again.

We aim to drive a revolution in outdoor wear by bringing manufacturing back to the USA. Crafting our products in America allows us to bring you a level of quality that no other brand can offer. Our mountain wear is made by craftsman who take personal pride in every needle pass. They believe in their work and we believe in their unmatched talent, so much so in fact that our mountain wear is hand signed by the person who made it.

We have come far

We have completed design and testing on two pieces, the No. 907 High-Altitude Hardshell Jacket and the No. 307 Mid-Altitude Windproof Fleece Jacket.

We took a ground up approach in designing our first two pieces looking to use only the best materials and avoiding using what everyone else is for the sake of ease or convention. The fabrics we have chosen to use are the best out there and unlike what our most of our competitors use, are made in the USA. We have brought new innovative features to the No. 907 and the No 307, such as our waist tightening system which ensures the base of the jacket stays tight around your waist, performing much better than the standard elastic draw cord used by our competitors. Our Hightop™ collar that is designed to provide increased wind protection and improve heat retention. A full list of the specifications of each jacket can be found below in the rewards section.

Why we need your help

We have put everything we have into getting this company going. Now we need your help to get the factory started producing the No. 907 and the No. 307 Gentlemen's Jackets. Your support will allow us to order the fabric and components needed to begin putting the No. 907 and the No. 307 into production. Your support will also help us complete our full line of mountain wear, which will launch in 2013.

Risks and challenges

We have worked hard to get the No. 907 and No. 307 ready for production. Our suppliers and factories are in hand, all that remains is to order the fabric and components and tell the factory to begin. While unforeseen complications can always arise we have a great team and are ready to meet those challenges and ensure you get your jacket in a timely manner.

We want to thank all of those who helped get us to this point, the great work and support they have provided will help make The American Mountain Co.'s launch a success.

FAQ

  • You bet we are. So, you are now likely asking why have we not told you the fabric names? Well, the fabric company we have chosen to use requires that we purchase our first production run of fabric before we can disclose their name. But, we can tell you that in the No. 907 we are using a NEW hardshell fabric that is truly liberating. In the No. 307 we are using a windproof fleece made by the company synonymous with fleece, which, as it happens, also make the hardshell fabric. We promise you will not be disappointed.

    Last updated:
  • Once we launch our full line in 2013 we will have other color options for the No. 907 and the No. 307. However, due to minimum order requirements from the fabric company we can only produce one color option for each jacket at this time.
