Why "Mountain Man?"
The Mountain Men of the 1800s were fur trappers by trade who spent most of their time in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Idaho, and Wyoming.
Due to their general distance from civilization, they became skilled at a number of things including basic emergency medicine.
Today most of us rarely are too far from a hospital but the difference between life and death can be the aid that is given in the 10-20 minutes it takes for EMTs to arrive.
We choose to name our brand and product line after the Mountain Man because to us they symbolize freedom in the American Outdoors, independence, commitment to craftsmanship, and a general rugged and strong lifestyle.
Who Are We
We are a small business based in Colorado that believes that the right medical training and gear should be accessible for every American.
Here are elements of our Core Belief and Mission:
Proven and Tested:
At the core of every decision, we make about the product we manufacturer, stock, or compile we ask ourselves, "Is it proven and tested?"
If our family or children's lives were on the line would we reach for the products that we are also recommending and selling to our customers? The answer is an emphatic YES.
With all the data coming out of the DOJ, TCCC, and the civilian medical community there is no reason today to operate with questionable or unproven products.
Our team includes in-house and external experts who have formal training and extensive experience as EMTs, Military Medics/Corpsman, etc.
Training and Skills Trump Gear:
Having the right gear matters but knowing what to do with it matters more.
As a small business, we don't have the resources currently to establish a training curriculum we can take on the road around the country but we do provide our "Emergency Trauma Response" video course for free and believe it is on par with any training course you could find on this subject matter.
We also stay committed to producing quality video content and blog articles as well as including video instructions with every trauma kit we sell.
We Don't Need to Reinvent the Wheel:
We believe in sourcing and providing to the customer existing name-brand proven products.
With the number of companies currently manufacturing quality bandages, dressings, tourniquets, gauze, etc we made the decision early on as a company to not reinvent the wheel if we don't have to.
Our kits are made up of name-brand tested and proven products.
Too many times we have heard from people that they don't have the right gear because it is too expensive.
At the core of our deepest held belief, we endeavor to make our kits the most affordable on the market while still including the most proven name-brand components.
This is why we have a standing price match guarantee. Find any competing trauma kit for sale that has the same or comparable components for less and we'll match the price.
We know that a prepared family has several kits (home, vehicles, etc) and we price our kits to allow one to afford as many as they need for their lifestyle.
