Wild Things Tactical

Founded in 1981, under the shadow of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, Wild Things began by making gear for the challenging east coast alpine conditions. Wild Things sewn slings, chalk bags, climbing packs, bivy sacks, and high altitude technical clothing were part of nearly every big climb from 1983 to 1990. Today our Mountain collection of clothing and carry serves the needs of those who are bold in their approach to the outdoor experience—climbers, bikers, campers, hikers, and just about anyone living, working, or playing aggressively in the outdoors. Decades of alpine experiences—elation, misery, epic achievement, and near misses go into everything we make.
