Designing The M5 Series

"My design mindset is simple...create innovative, durable products that protect from the elements and function efficiently in the field. Then test, redesign, and test more." - Kurt Racicot, Stone Glacier Founder & Lead Designer

Every great product starts with an idea. An idea often stemming from experience. For Stone Glacier's founder and lead designer, Kurt Racicot, these ideas were born from 13 years of solo hunting the Chugach, Kenai, and Alaska ranges. After the purchase of his first sewing machine, Kurt started to modify his existing gear, which in turn led to new product developments and eventually the creation of Stone Glacier. Fast forward and today SG is more than a backpack company, offering ultralight tents, performance sleeping bags, and technical apparel.


DURABLE, PACKABLE, AND STORMPROOF. A PROVEN FINAL DEFENSE AGAINST MOUNTAIN WEATHER.
