WE MADE IT! MAC-GEAR on top of KATAHDIN thanks ETHAN “Dr Stretch”

Success in the truest form, providing an item that serves a purpose, a source of comfort and security and have it do it to the point the user takes the time to tell you about it at the pinnacle of their journey. Ethan’s photos he shared with us not only show his truly great life adventure but triumph and success of our values.

“I finished my hike two days ago. I’m. It sure if anyone had taken your gear up Katahdin before, but it made it and performed admirably along the way!

Thank you so much.
Dr. Stretch”
