Mountain Hardwear Enterprise Review and Giveaway

As you have probably read before in some of my other post here that my family loves to be outdoors and we spend a lot of our weekends together camping, but here the last month or so we have been unable to do anything with this stupid heat wave we have going on here where my car reads 108 and up on some days…but there is good new right around the corner we will be entering my favorite season of the whole year Fall!! I love Fall and so does the rest of the family it means that we can go hiking and exploring the beautiful mountains that surround our small rural town, so where’s this going you may be asking, well we had the opportunity to review another awesome product from Mountain Hardwear and it’s going to be perfect for this fall’s hikes and picnics!


 
About Mountain Hardwear (Taken From Website):

 
Moments of challenge define us as human beings. During those moments of challenge, our character, resolve, and our values are tested in ways that enable us to grow and realize our potential and push ourselves and mankind a little further.…

 
Our brand was founded by a group of passionate people, who on a shoe-string, believed anything is possible, and that anything worth pursuing in life required challenge. The time was NOW! They were in an industry of sameness with a herd mentality, it was time to challenge the way things were being done, a paradigm shift, time to shake it up, and get after it! They believed only through seeking out challenge can you truly achieve greatness in life and the people you serve. They rejected words & concepts like status quo, mundane, the way things are, you can’t do it that way, think realistically. It was time to do it differently, change the rules, because when you are like everyone, you are no one at all. It was a progressive attitude, a free thinking attitude, and a belief that the greatest service to people was to enable them to progress their potential in life, and to do that required passion, big dreams, and the courage to take on challenge.

 
In the first 16 years, our brand has been focused on the literal mountain. Climbing to the highest peaks in the world, humbling standing on their summits and celebrating the possibilities realized from pursuing dreams with relentless passion and focus. We have always looked for the next big challenge, the next big climb, the steepest descent, the longest wild run to feed our insatiable appetite to test our resolve, and push beyond our perceived limits and learn a little more about ourselves.

 
As we learned more about ourselves, grew, and expanded as human beings, and within our culture, we realized standing on the peak didn’t define who we were and our potential; it was the moments of challenge, along the journey that defined us. We celebrate those individuals and are inspired by big dreamers that believe anything is possible.

 
We build the world’s most technologically advanced products to enable those people who seek out challenge as a way to progress their own potential in life.

 

My Thoughts:

 
I was sent the Enterprise in Mudcloth to review and let me tell you after my last review of Mountain Hardwear products I had really high standers for this pack, and to no surprise to me it met and surpassed my expectations!

 
I want to share with you the details of the Enterprise (from website)

 
Dressed for the office, but well equipped for the trail, our perennial best-seller has been upgraded with our CoolWave Suspension for even better performance.
  • Tough 210D HexRip nylon body panels combine with 840D high-tenacity nylon bottom and fully bound seams to ensure durability and long life
  • Highly technical CoolWave suspension maintains excellent fit and ventilation regardless of load ensuring outstanding comfort in all conditions
  • Front pocket organizer keeps frequently-used items handy and includes two soft spacer mesh pockets ideal for delicate electronics
  • Roomy main compartment with burly #10 YKK zip and fully padded hydration/laptop sleeve
  • Internal zip pocket with key clip secures important items
  • Internal soft fleece pocket for sunglasses
  • Two zippered pockets on front panel offer additional storage and organization
  • Daisy chain with padded grab handle and ice axe loop offers convenient lash/clip points  
  • Side compression straps provide load control
  • Side mesh pockets with reflective tabs keep water bottles handy  
  • Sternum strap and removable webbing waistbelt add stability when needed
  • Imported
 
My husband and I were both really excited to receive the Enterprise because we had never really taken a pack with us while hiking and hitting the mountain trails, but there really are some really important items we need to take with us while hiking and such, so now we can be sure take everything along with us!
 
Since “Bug” is old enough now to go with us on such adventures this pack is going to come in handy keeping his essentials such as pull-ups, wipes and the much needed first aid kits and bug spray along with some other important things we need while on the trails.
 
Once the Enterprise arrived I was so surprised at how roomy this pack was and all the separate compartments that are perfect to keep out things organized so we can find them easily when we need them. I love that the Enterprise is light weight and can be comfortably worn all day with the padding in the straps I don’t think we will have to fight over who is going to be carrying the Enterprise on our adventures :0). I also could not be happier with the color it’s so gender neutral that when my husband goes to deer camp this season he can take it to carry all the things he “thinks” he needs to get the big one!
 
Bottom Line:

We are very excited to hit the trails this fall with our new Enterprise! I feel so much better knowing that I can take everything the family and I need while out on our little adventures so we never have to say “we forgot that”! I’ve got it all packed and ready for our first outing hopefully in a few weeks once it cools down!
 
I’m very excited about the fact that it has a cool little side mesh pockets with tabs to keep our water with in reach and of course I’m loving the internal soft fleece pocket for our sunglasses (we have a hard time keeping them from breaking) and the features of this pack is perfect for any type of out door activity you could possible dream up!
 
I think that the Enterprise would make the perfect gift for anyone on your list that enjoys the outdoors and would be perfect for you if you enjoy the outdoors and going hiking and such! The Enterprise comes in Stainless, Blue Ice, Jungle, Black and Mudcloth!
