THE MERRELL BLOG: WHAT'S NOW. WHAT'S NEXT. LET'S GET OUTSIDE.
Monty Halls - A Merrell Pack Leader
Monty Halls embodies the Merrell mission to increase participation in the outdoors, with his passion for getting outside, discovering more about the natural world and enthusing others to join him.
A former Royal Marines officer, Monty left to pursue a career in leading expeditions, circumnavigating the globe four times on various projects, leading multi-national teams in some of the most demanding environments on earth.
Monty’s remarkable expeditions have included an anti-poaching project in the high montane grasslands of the Nyika Plateau in northern Malawi, the discovery of a sunken city off the coast of Tamil Nadu in India, and a successful attempt to find and photograph a rare crocodile species in the mountain pools of the Raspaculo Basin in Central America. His achievements were honoured with Monty being awarded the Bish Medal by the Scientific Exploration Society for his services to exploration.
Monty has also enjoyed a successful career as a television presenter, hosting various series and documentaries for the BBC, Channel Five, The Discovery Channel, The National Geographic Channel and the History Channel.
