We have a work-hard, play-hard mentality and are supportive of finding a healthy work/life balance. When it comes to professional development, our high employee retention rate and tenured team is the best indicator that there is no shortage of opportunities to learn and grow. We are fortunate to have a passionate and supportive parent company, Samsonite, a world leader in the travel space, which provides financial stability and allows us to pay competitive salaries with great benefits. At the end of the day, we put a lot of value on each and every one of our team members.
What We Value
We are a product-driven company, so we place a huge amount of value in high quality design, craftsmanship, materials, and responsible sourcing.

We believe in the incredible physical and mental health benefits we acquire from spending time outdoors. We seek to foster aspiration without intimidation, and we welcome all adventurers.
Our passion drives us to ensure every one of our products bears the mark of our hands-on, ground-up effort to curate new ideas, materials and technology to deliver something that is uniquely Gregory. This ingenuity and passion-driven mission can be felt beyond our products across all aspects of the company. It informs the style in which interact with our customers, our consumers, and our community. No matter how our consumers define adventure or wherever their curiosity leads them, it’s our job to enhance and empower their experiences.

About Gregory Mountain Products
We have a work-hard, play-hard culture, and our family of employees has made a choice to combine a passion for outdoor life and discovery with a professional career. Thanks to our global headquarters’ convenient location at the base of the Wasatch Mountains, our team has amazing, stones-throw access to local trails and walkability to local restaurants and shops. If you drop into our office on any given day you’ll find plenty of bikes, skis, dirty shoes, beer cans in the recycling bin and nearly as many dogs as there are people. Plus packs, of course—tons of packs!
We build our prototypes right here in our office and can practically walk out the back door to test them. With 270-degree views of the mountains, we can feel the energy of the mountains all around us, which inspires and motivates us to push the boundaries of new product design and keeps us smiling all day long.
