Named by Men’s Health Magazine as one of the “top 5 products for 2012”, the Salute is the flagship for a new style and genre of packs. The Salute is an "every-panel loader" equipped with a heavy-duty #10 zipper that “snakes” around the entire pack in the shape of an "S".

Growing up in the mountains of Colorado we spent most of our lives in the outdoors. Our summers were consumed by hiking, camping and fishing and we devoted our time to snowboarding in the winter. This lifestyle was very familiar and comfortable to us, but in 2009 we were nearing the end of our path in college surrounded by uncertainty. We had no idea where our trail would lead once we set foot into the "real world". Jobs for college grads were few and far between due to the poor economy and the idea of taking a traditional "white-collar" path after college terrified us.
A few months after graduating college, we forged our own path and decided to start a new brand of backpacks. Our never-ending love for the outdoors and refusal to settle led to the birth of MHM. This passion is carried directly into the quality and innovation of the packs we make. Why did we choose backpacks? Well we believe that backpacks are one of the single most important items people use. Whether you are trekking through the woods or going to work and school, people need an efficient way to carry their belongings without having to balance it on their heads or strain their backs.
The term "corporate" doesn't apply to us and it never will. We are a couple of guys, who love being outside doing what we love. Spending time outdoors and talking to people directly about what they want in a pack is what inspires our designs. Our packs do not follow a traditional path, as they bring a new and fresh perspective to the pack world. Using only the best fabrics and an over-obsessive attention to detail has produced what we believe to be the best packs out there. The quality, unique features and compartmentalized design are like nothing else. We truly hope you enjoy using our packs as much as we've enjoyed designing them for you.
