We are currently mobilizing the "Outdoor GIENTAI", a relief effort supported by the outdoor industry, to help the affected people in Western Japan from June 28th to July 8th, 2018.

Message from the founder and CEO of Montbell

My thoughts are with all the people who have been affected by the rainstorm occurred in Western Japan in June 2018.

During the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, Great East Japan Earthquake, and Kumamoto Earthquake, we humbly asked your support and contribution to help people who were affected by the earthquake. Once again, we humbly ask that you join us and provide support any way we can to help the people who have been affected by the rainstorm.

About Outdoor GIENTAI


"Outdoor GIENTAI" was formed at the time of the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, occurred in the southern part of Hyogo Prefecture on January 17, 1995, and provided humble contributions that we could make at that time. Donations and relief goods of apprx. 300 tons were collected all over Japan from individuals to corporatesand were distributed in the affected areas. Volunteer efforts were also organized.

A long-term support is required but we believe it's important to start with what we can do now, applying outdoor skills, knowledge, gears and clothing. We appreciate all your assistance and contribution.
