Golden, CO (Feb 26, 2018)
- Mountainsmith—craftsmen of iconic backcountry equipment and recreational outdoor gear—have launched their latest series of adventure photography packs, which were designed in collaboration with world-renowned adventure photographers Andy Mann and Keith Ladzinski.
The new camera pack line is composed of 6 separate products designed to protect and organize your camera equipment in the most extreme conditions. Photographers Andy Mann and Keith Ladzinski have developed a close relationship with Mountainsmith over the years, testing products and offering key input that has fueled the design process for multiple projects.
“Despite their world-class photography credentials, at the end of the day Keith Ladzinski and Andy Mann remain our friends and colleagues first and foremost,” Says Mountainsmith Lead Designer Luke Boldman. “We’re not so much working for a client, but working amongst honorary members of the Mountainsmith team. As designers, we know their requirements for rugged gear and we understand the harshness of the environments where they like to push the boundaries on their photography and video skills. As camera and video equipment has changed over the years, so too have Keith and Andy’s shooting styles and the Mountainsmith field gear necessary to keep them on point. Having a deep relationship with these two photographers allows us to keep our product development flow nimble and expedient.”

"I am a lucky man, by all accounts. Not only have I been blessed with the opportunity to travel and document the world, but I’ve been able to create what I think are the perfect camera bags with Mountainsmith,” says Andy Mann. “Countless hours and years of design meetings, bioengineering and testing on all 7 continents has finally come full circle. I’m beyond excited to share this new line of Mountainsmith bags with other photographers. This project has been my baby (Sure I’m obsessed with good design and functionality), so let’s let it loose! Enjoy!”
