3We have taken some considerable time and effort into the selection of the brands that we distribute. As active outdoors people we have personal experience with our brands but we have not let our own positive experience be the only driver in our selection. We have consulted with other users to get their opinion and so our decisions have been shaped by a collective experience on seven continents, the highest mountains, hottest deserts, tempestuous seas, turbulent rivers, placid lakes and deepest caves. Our range covers the full spectrum of use from high performance individual requirements to those of group instruction at all levels of competency.
Our driving criteria for selection has been that our brands
- have an unsurpassed reputation for quality and reliability.
- they meet all the safety requirements of the international community and relevant legislation in mature markets.
- that they are innovators that not only produce great outdoor gear but are also involved in the development of new and exiting products.
- the equipment and products perform as they are advertised and will not let you down when you need them most: in the most challenging situations, where a replacement is not at hand and when the conditions are most demanding. In short, they do what they say on the packet and keeping on performing as designed.
