Mount Inspiration Apparel is an up-and-coming designer and printer of amazing casual apparel and accessories for outdoor lovers. While they have a full line-up of adult apparel, what I’m particularly excited about are their designs for the youngest hikers out there!
I had a chance to recently check out a toddler sized t-shirt for my pint sized Hiking Baby, and a onesie for the Hiking Baby who is on the way. Not only are they cute (you can verify for yourself in the pictures!), but they are so soft and comfortable. Mr. Hiking Baby loves wearing his new “Let’s Be Friends” t-shirt and did not want to take it off to put his pajamas on at night. This Mount Inspiration Apparel t-shirt along with deep pocketed cargo shorts are now his favorite attire. Who knew two year olds had such discerning fashion sense!?
All of Mount Inspiration Apparel is made out of 100% sustainable materials like recycled plastic bottles, hemp, bamboo, and organic cotton! This isn’t a surprise, given that the company is based in Asheville, North Carolina, and was founded by a young man inspired by his Appalachian Trail thru-hike. Check out the below video to learn about the company’s founder and their mission.

One more thing to note before you check out the Mount Inspiration products for yourself – the company donates 5% of their profits to environmental protection organizations like the National Park Foundation and the Sierra Club! Wohoo!
If Mount Inspiration Apparel has inspired you for a thru-hike, or perhaps a morning hike with your little ones on a section of the Appalachian Trail, be sure to check out the recent Hiking Baby review of the children’s book Grandma Gatewood Hikes the Appalachian Trail!
