Meet JHMG’s Gear Guide Paul

October 16, 2015 | Posted in: JHMG


In the backcountry, we rely on our gear. Having the right gear, is important, but with  all of the different types of gear out there, how do you know if what you are getting is the right tool for the job?  Meet Paul Schenkenberger.  Paul has been with Mountain Gear for over 20 years and has been calling the mountains his playground for over 30 years. He has done alpine routes in the Cascades and Rocky Mountains, as well as sport climbing and backcountry skiing, fly fishing, and mountain biking all over the place. Paul probably spends more time in the backcountry than any other employee at Mountain Gear and is one of their resident gear experts.  He is also the your JHMG Gear Guide. Paul has a great understanding of what it takes to operate in all kinds of conditions; from gear, to training, to mental attitude. He will be a great resource for anyone looking to outfit themselves with gear and clothing for any climb or adventure.
