Mountain Lite - Lightweight Mountain Kit for Runners by Runners

Mountain Lite is all about Lightweight Travel in the mountains. Whether it be mountain marathons, adventure races, fell or trail running, fast & light backpacking, fast-packing or any other form of mountain running - we're here to help you excel at your chosen sport in comfort. 

At Mountain Lite we understand the importance of lightweight quality clothing, footwear and equipment and its ability to help enhance your enjoyment and ease of movement through the mountainous regions of Europe and the world. 

Mountain Lite is run by people who love the mountains. We have grown up surrounded by them in the English Lake District and between us we have run them, raced them, completed Bob Graham Rounds, run Mountain Marathons across them to an elite level, planned races & much more. We've camped in their languid beauty for years & years, whether it be in vans, the open air or in lightweight tents. We've even swam the lakes in the summer and sailed on them in all weathers. 

We've climbed the crags, bouldered the edges and scrambled the outcrops, we've put axes to ice, snow & rock, skied up and down slopes and ice skated on winter tarns. And not only have we done all this, but we've made sure we enjoy many of these pastimes in Scotland, Wales, Ireland and further field into Europe - playing in Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, and more. 

From our home in the mountains of the Cumbrian Lake District and further across Europe we've tested women's and men's waterproof jackets, running packs, tents, fell-running shoes - in fact, if it falls under the category of 'lightweight' and 'outdoor' you can be sure we've used it.

So when you come to Mountain Lite for your lightweight running kit, you can be guaranteed that we have been using the kit you're thinking of purchasing in many different situations and environments. 

This gives you, our customer, the confidence to know that we have thought carefully about every item of outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment we stock and that we have used, abused and tested what you are about to buy. 

We hope you enjoy your experience on our website, please get in touch via email to tell us if you're satisfied or not, all feedback is extremely important to us as it helps us to improve your experience when you shop online with Mountain Lite.
