About Us

Who we are
Karst Sports is a merchandiser of caving, rescue, climbing and other outdoor equipment.

Karst Sports has been in this business since 1993 and has been selling by way of the Internet since early 1994.  Our roots go much deeper though in that the parent company, Management Systems and Consultants Inc.,  was started in 1976.  For 4 decades the company has been owned by the same family with three different generations being involved over the years.

At Karst Sports, our goal is to provide our customers with the best in product service at a competitive price.

What is Karst and why the name? Karst is a complex landscape with distinctive topography that has been shaped by the dissolving action of waters to form unique surface and subsurface features. The word originally comes from Italian Carso and Serbian-Croatian Kras for a limestone plateau in the Dinaric Alps of Northwest Slovenia.  To us at Karst Sports we have made it our name to relate toward any activity that may take place in and around a Karst area such as Caving, Rock Climbing, Paddling, Mountain Biking, Hiking, Mountain and Wilderness Rescue, etc...
