Serving mountaineers and feeding off their spirit to drive innovation and design gear has always been the mode of operation at Millet. As they develop technical clothing and equipment to go head to head with the craziest conditions and terrain, Millet never loses sight of their goal to enhance the outdoor experience for their faithful customers. In fact, Millet climbing equipment is so focused on performance and safety, that they have become a fountain of inspiration for climbers across the globe.
It all began during the 1930s when Millet got famous for creating the first shopping bag that featured a shoulder strap. Leave it to the French to launch a world-class mountaineering brand by starting with a serious baguette sack. At any rate, soon they had moved on to backpacks and partnered with some of the most impressive mountaineers around to forge a rugged brand image. While it was Mr. and Mrs. Marc Millet that originally founded the company, it was their sons, Ramon and Rene that guided the brand to a whole new level of brilliance. From aiding the resistance movement during WWII to outfitting the very first French team to explore the Himalayas, Millet has always been bold.
Once word spread that labeled Millet as the producers of seriously legit mountaineering gear, they stayed focused on keeping that credibility intact. In truth, they were the original brand to stray from using cotton in their backpacks when they launched a line crafted solely from nylon to keep things lightweight and waterproof. As time progressed, Millet climbing equipment began to diversify while always retaining a reputation for trustworthiness. Now, your entire expedition can be powered by Millet. From backpacks to technical products, to clothing and shoes, Millet climbing equipment is built for the journey that lies ahead.
Millet mountaineering boots are a fine example of what makes this company so trusted in the alpine community. The Millet Radikal Pro Boot is custom built for absolute performance in the most treacherous conditions. High altitudes and harsh terrain are no match for the phylon honeycomb construction, Boa lacing system, and fleece lining. A stretchy storm flap and integrated neoprene gaiter do absolute work to ward off menacing snow and frigid assaults by Mother Nature. A super durable Vibram Teton light sole allows you to stay nimble while enjoying all kinds of traction on icy surfaces. Gear like the Millet Radikal Pro Boot and other Millet mountaineering boots dominate the outdoors because that’s just Millet’s style.
