SGB reports that Hyperlite Mountain Gear, a U.S. East Coast company founded in 2010 by brothers Mike and Dan St. Pierre, has secured an investment from T-street Capital, a Connecticut-based independent growth equity firm founded in 2013 by Dale Cheney. Hyperlite has previously made a name for itself with high-tech and ultralight gear such as backpacks, tents and accessories. The brand welcomes the investment saying it is preparing to accelerate the growth of the brand and continue to offer “best-in-class ultralight products and integrated solutions for a transformational outdoor experience.” Will Manzer, chairman of Hyperlite and former chairman of the Outdoor Industry Association, commented that the investment will enable the brand to expand not only domestically, but also internationally.
