You may have noticed that Stone Glacier has evolved a lot over the last couple of years. Designing and producing the best backpacks available continues to be a leading priority of ours, but now we also offer top of the line tents, sleeping bags, and technical apparel. This has been no easy feat, and we have worked tirelessly to design unique products that utilize industry-leading innovations and technologies..
Last year, we introduced our Patent Pending Contour Waist™ System in our De Havilland Pants, the Grumman Goose Down series boasting the best warmth-to-weight ratio available, the SkyAir ULT shelter that weighs a mere eight ounces, and a redesigned Xcurve Frame that is stronger and lighter than ever..
This year, our technical apparel line has expanded with new color offerings, and we are excited to announce the addition of the waterproof/breathable M5 Jacket and M5 Pant designed with our own HydraShield™ 3-layer laminate textile technology. We also released our Helio Series of mid-layers that utilize Polygiene® Odor Technology and our innovative Stratum™ Layered Zipper System. Also, we have improved our already best-selling Skyscraper 2P tent and are excited to offer the all-new SkyDome 6P base camp shelter that is unlike anything the hunting market has ever seen..
With the help of our loyal customers, we are staged to carry on the evolution of Stone Glacier and are excited to continue expanding our product offering to bring you the best of the best. We hope you will reach out to let us know what other pieces of gear you would like to see from Stone Glacier as well as provide feedback on the gear you are using in the field. As always, thank you for your support and best of luck in your adventures.
The preferred gear of guides, outfitters and discerning hunters.

“While we’ve all used a variety of different backpacks over the years, we’re madly in love with the Stone Glacier packs we’ve been using lately. These things are tough-as-nails, technically advanced, and highly versatile…The loads don’t shift, gear stays dry, the stitching holds up and there’s not a lot of noise when creeping through the brush. Stone Glacier pack accessories allow us to personalize our gear organization. That’s just about everything you can ask for from a hunting backpack. We’re sold on Stone Glacier.”

In January of 2017, I made the hard decision to switch from a company I had used for 12 years to Stone Glacier. For me, it was only after carefully watching close industry friends and some of my guides rave about them from top to bottom that I took the leap. I have to say it Stone Glacier has lived up to my every expectation of a company and a high-end backpack. The extremely lightweight and flexible design of the Xcurve Frame provides an excellent fit to your back and hips while remaining comfortable even under the heaviest loads.

After spending 17 nights (and a few bad-weather days) in the Skyscraper 2P, I am convinced it is the best backpacking tent on the market. September in the Mackenzie Mountains can be unpredictable and unforgiving. That proved to be true with a daily swing of snow, ice, wind, and rain. The Skyscraper’s smart design makes setup easy in these not so favorable conditions. My two favorite things about this tent: It’s only 4 pounds, and the double wall design keeps the condensation off me and my gear.
