Matt is Mountain Hardwear's youngest sponsored Athlete. Mountain Hardwear sponsors over 20 athletes to provide real-world challenges to their product designers and to conduct product testing in extreme conditions. They also think it's important to support the folks who are committed to pushing their personal limits while pursuing adventure in the outdoors.
The Triple 8 team has made Q-Force products the backbone of their training and climbing protocol and central to the expedition’s story. Combining antioxidants to boost the immune system and help fight off the effects of the extreme altitude (like cerebral edema) and anti-inflammatory effects with proven endurance-building and bolstered recovery properties, Q-Force is the perfect supplement for our ambitious, high-altitude itinerary.
On the big mountains, Matt swears by his Zamberlan boots.
A ski descent of the Lhoste Couloir requires more than just skill and courage. The team is proud to be using Dynafit skis and bindings on this historic attempt.
