MSR

DuraShield is a polyurethane and or silicone DWR finish applied to some MSR rainflys and floors, this allows the tents to withstand the wind, rain, and the other rigors of the outdoors without tearing or getting waterlogged.

Over time, moisture, heat and humidity have been chemically breaking down your tent’s waterproof coating and seam tape—both as you’ve been using it and storing it—leaving you with a defeated tent.

This natural process, called hydrolysis, happens much more quickly on today’s lightweight tents, an issue that’s been frustrating the tent industry for more than a decade.

For 10 years, the MSR tent team has had nose to the grindstone—in the lab, talking to scientists—searching for a solution. Searching for the key to extending the life of your tent’s waterproofness.

The magic is at the molecular level. Xtreme Shield’s polyurethane features a molecular chain that’s formulated specifically to hold up against heat and humidity. Therefore, it resists the premature degradation that traditional tent polyurethane coatings experience. For you, this means a tent that lasts much longer, with a quality that’s maintained over time. In fact, this waterproof coating is 3 times more durable than standard coatings, giving you reliable weather protection season in and season out. With the Xtreme Shield waterproof coating and a far more durable stitched and factory-sealed seam, we’re proud to say MSR’s lightweight tents deliver our superior quality for longer—staying in the field, out of repair shops and out of landfills.

SealLine®

SealLine's unique and waterproof PurgeAir™ valve vents trapped air, helping the sack compress further after being sealed, and is both more durable and more reliably waterproof than waterproof/breathable fabric membranes.

Petzl

Specific coil makes the rope ready to use. Helps the user avoid initial uncoiling mistakes, and increases longevity. Ready to use out of the packaging.

Dry treatment, making the rope more resistant to water, dirt and abrasion. Handling, grip and other characteristics are retained longer in cold, wet conditions.

This construction combines thin foam with special (variable width) webbing sewn onto the foam for optimal load distribution. The waistbelt webbing is wider at the hips for lightweight support. Special attention has been given to providing maximum comfort: there are no pressure points or rub points on the waistbelt. ENDOFRAME technology is used on SAMA, SELENA, ADJAMA and, LUNA harnesses.

Special treatment stabilises the core strands and improves consistency. Provides excellent grip and handling over time.

The FACE2FACE function allows users to be face-to-face without blinding one another...

Once activated, it triggers a sensor that detects other DUO headlamps within 8 meters and automatically dims the lighting if they face each other. The light returns to its original intensity once the other headlamp is no longer in its line of sight.

This construction forms the core of CORAX, CALIDRIS and TOUR harnesses, and combines a thick layer of foam with central webbing on the waistbelt and leg loops. The load is distributed by the webbing that surrounds the foam. The construction allows for great durability and comfort during prolonged suspension on a climb.

This construction uses thin thermoformed foam and doubled interior webbing for greater comfort and lightness. The webbing on the waistbelt and leg loops, as well as the strength elements (tool-holder attachment), are integrated into the foam to eliminate hard points. Further, a thin piece of fabric is fused to the waistbelt foam for better weight distribution. All this gives the harnesses smooth and clean exterior surfaces without adding thickness, for improved abrasion resistance. FUSEFRAME technology gives the HIRUNDOS and AQUILA harnesses a clean, smart design that is light and comfortable.

The HYBRID CONCEPT construction allows Petzl's compact headlamps to run on either the CORE rechargeable battery or three AAA/LR03 batteries, without an adapter.
- CORE rechargeable battery is an economical solution for frequent and/or intensive use

Petzl goes beyond the requirements of the standards by creating climbing and mountaineering helmets that provide effective protection from falling objects and from side, front, and rear impacts.
This enhanced protection is tested using a special protocol: TOP AND SIDE PROTECTION = 1. Standard Protection + 2. Enhanced Protection.

The UIAA Guide Dry treatment is our most complete water repellent treatment for frequent use in wet environments. It makes a difference especially for regular use in extreme environments: ice climbing, mountaineering. This treatment also improves the rope's resistance to dirt and abrasion.

The UIAA Guide Dry treatment meets the requirements of the UIAA Water Repellent test. The results of this test indicate water absorption of less than 2%.

The manufacturing process for UIAA Guide Dry treatment has two stages: the core
is treated before the rope is braided, and then the entire rope is treated in order to minimise water absorption and penetration of fine particles into the rope.

Ultrasonic welding bonds the core and sheath together at the rope ends. Gives greater durability and avoids frayed ends.

WIREFRAME technology uses high-modulus polyethylene (HMPE) strands. These strands are used in the waistbelt and leg loops to optimally distribute pressure, ensuring maximum comfort and freedom of movement for the climber. This construction gives the harness an exceptional weight-to-comfort ratio that makes it practically unnoticeable when worn. WIREFRAME technology, applied to a very sleek design with very slim technical lines, is perfectly suited to high-performance SITTA and ALTITUDE harnesses.

Therm-a-Rest

Therm-a-Rest's patented BowFrame™ cot design converts lightweight poles, stretch-free fabric and unique cot feet into a tension-spring system that holds the cot together and provides superior, off-the-ground sleeping comfort and support. When used, the cot’s bow poles are designed to flex until the middle of the pole contacts the ground, offering the user greater stability while still maintaining flex for comfort.

Providing the same reduced weight as our vertically cut foam, our diagonal cuts also boost warmth by minimising airflow.

Open cell foam structure traps air to deliver a higher R-value foam that provides consitent support and durability.

NikWax Hydrophobic Down dries 3 times faster than untreated down without using dangerous PFCs. Boasting unrivalled temperature regulation, it dries three times faster, absorbs 90% less water and maintains loft 60 times longer than untreated down.

The Responsible Down Standard is an independent, voluntary global standard, which means that companies can choose to certify their products to the RDS, even if there is no legislation requiring them to do so. The RDS was developed and revised over three years, with the input of animal welfare groups, industry experts, brands and retailers. The standard recognizes and rewards the best practices in animal welfare.

What does Responsible Mean?

The intent and spirit of the standard is best reflected by one of Oxford Dictionary’s definitions of responsible: “morally accountable for one’s behaviour.” Not only farmers, but brands and supply chain members need to meet their obligations to respect the Five Freedoms of the animals that provide their down and feathers, and to meet the trust of consumers that are choosing RDS products.

Inflate your SpeedValve™ mattress 2-3 times faster than traditional valves.

Bernoulli's Principle of fluid dynamics helps explain why a SpeedValve™ mattress inflates so quickly. The specially designed valve uses physics to fill the mattress with more air than your breath alone.

When you blow into the valve from several centimetres away, your breath sends fast-moving, low-pressure air through the neck of the mattress, causing the static, high-pressure air outside the mattress to rush in to equalise the pressure.

Put simply, every breath pulls in surrounding air molecules to amplify the airflow and inflate the mattress faster and with less effort than with traditional valves.

When it's time to pack up camp, the patent-pending, auto-reversing SpeedValve™ design lets you deflate your mattress almost instantly.

Yielding the best warmth-to-weight ratio of any self-inflating mattress, StrataCore uses a continuous layer of thermal foam nestled between alternating ridges of air and foam.

Therm-a-Rest's proprietary reflective coating radiates heat back to your body and prevents heat loss, saving you energy for tomorrow's adventure.

Patented technology utilises two stacked layers of triangular baffles to create a stable surface while minimising heat loss.

Dependable and easy to use, the TwinLock valve offers a better way to inflate and deflate high volume Therm-a-Rest sleeping mats. The dedicated “IN” and “OUT” valves allow for three times faster inflation or deflation thanks to a one way checked inflate feature, partial twist bleed valve and a lightning quick dump valve.

A single layer of horizontal wave baffles that slows convective heat loss without adding extra bulk.

As dependable and backpack ready as their classic valve, the WingLock valve is as easy to use as a water bottle cap and offers three times the airflow rate of the classic valve. A larger opening and one way check valve allow for easy setup while a simple twist of the wings allows air to escape when it’s time to pull down camp.

Tilley

Airflo® model hats come with Mesh, grommets, vents and or breathable fabric to keep wearer cool and comfortable. The mesh panel on the crown provides excellent ventilation allowing heat to escape. The panel can very from 3/4" to 3 inches in width depending on the hat model.

to keep wearer cool and comfortable.

HyperKewl™ cooling inserts are available in select Tilley hats.

HyperKewl™ Evaporative Cooling material is a unique fabric that absorbs and slowly releases water through evaporation. We look at this process as “super-charging” the body’s natural cooling process, thereby protecting the wearer against heat stress.  HyperKewl™ Evaporative Cooling products utilize a patented polymer technology to achieve rapid absorption and stable water storage. This formulation also creates enhanced, prolonged evaporation. HyperKewl™ fabric combined with our three-layer design helps to cool the user while staying completely dry!

Tilley Airflo® Sport hats are made from the ultra-light weight eco-friendly Super Yarn.  A recycled polyester base is produced using PET as the raw material.  This is the same material used in clear plastic water bottles.  Recycling it prevents PET from going into our landfills.  The Super Yarn is not only a recycled product it is energy saving & environmentally friendly because of the solution dye process.

100% cotton treated with a water repellent wax finish. Waxed cotton develops it's own character over time & use; leaving your unique history built into the fabric itself. Tilley put a 'double pass' of wax on our Outback Waxed Cotton hat to be extra thorough. A quick spin in the dryer every few washes will rejuvenate the finish.

Temperature regulated membrane that adapts to changing environments to ensure the optimal body climate.

At higher temperatures or during sports activities, the polymer structure of the c_change™ membrane opens in response to the correspondingly intense moisture development. This allows excess heat and moisture to escape to the outside air. In the cold, or at times of low activity, the membrane remains closed. As a result of the lower moisture development, the polymer structure contracts and keeps the heat close to the body. Shivering or chilling are effectively prevented.
