As of 2019, Mont Adventure Equipment is certified by the Responsible Down Standard (RDS). RDS certification ensures that the down in RDS labeled products is guaranteed to have been sourced in accordance with the Responsible Down Standard.
RDS is an independent, voluntary global standard that ensures down is not sourced via live plucking, that birds are not force fed & that a birds welfare is always upheld.
Certified by IDFL
Project #: 005963
Current Mont down sleeping bags and garments that were manufactured before Mont's RDS certification are filled with down certified by the CFDIA. CFDIA certification ensures that down is not the product of live plucking & that birds are never force fed.
Mont is committed to manufacturing responsible down products.

As summer approaches, I keep looking through my list of past walks to see which ones I want to do again.
In September 1986 I walked from Lake St Clair, up past Little Hugel to Mt Hugel. I then continued down the western slopes to Lake Hermione, followed a valley up to Lake Petrarch and walked back down to Lake St Clair. A good partly offtrack bushwalk. This time I only had two days, so the plan was to camp next to a tarn up on the Mt Hugel plateau.

One of the biggest jobs at Mont is customer service, with the inbox sometimes a little overwhelming! But the emails are overwhelmingly positive; questions about our gear, emails about how well a customers gear worked, and fun stories and photos from the wild.
It isn’t all smiles, though, negative emails do occasionally pop up. But not to let that get us down, often these emails highlight a failure of communication on our part or provide information for us to reflect upon and improve.
