The Guide Pick™ Difference

We’ve spent a lifetime in the mountains. When it comes to gear we won’t compromise. Leveraging the collective knowledge of the RMI Guide Team, we select and direct you to top mountain gear. Guide Pick™ is outfitting simplified.


RMI guides work and play on the world’s highest mountains. Their gear is exposed to the most extreme conditions – collectively over 10,000 days of use annually.

Ed Viesturs, Whittaker Mountaineering Guide Team

With almost 70 opinionated guides giving input, complete agreement rarely happens…but alignment does. Our process allows for the best gear in each category.

Ed Viesturs, Peter Whittaker, Whittaker Mountaineering Guide Team

The top products in each category are identified and stamped Guide Pick™. You’ll see this designation on the RMI Equipment Lists, throughout our website and store.
