Sport climbing and bolts. These days, they belong together like bouldering and low-cut trousers. Perhaps the reassuringly shiny silver metal found on crags has already helped you achieve undreamt-of performances. Or maybe you’ve cursed because you haven’t been able to sport a bolt. Set correctly, bolts significantly increase safety whilst rock climbing. But what is […]

Is a clip stick a useful addition to your climbing equipment for ambitious rock climbers? Or is it more for indoor climbers, who find that the sometimes sparse protection on the rock makes them nervous? Firstly, what is a clip stick anyway? Shrewd sport climbers will recognise it immediately, it’s a stick with which you […]

If you’ve already conquered a mountain, then you’ve probably heard this sentence before: “Whew, the air is getting thin up here…” This isn’t noticeable on a classic hill walk or via ferrata but you’ll notice it whilst mountaineering at altitudes between 3,000 and 4,000 metres.

Burrito, taco, hard foam or preferably something soft? How big should it be, how important is the carry system, and what actually distinguishes the good pads from the bad?

Carabiners have noses? Indeed they do! And just like the ones on people and animals, carabiner noses come in all sorts of shapes an sizes. The only difference: Biner noses don’t have a sense of smell! What they do have are some great names: “HoodWire”,“Wirelock”,“MonoFil”, „Keylock“ or even “Clean Wire”. Not bad, eh? Yeah, biner […]

I’m sure all of you outdoor enthusiasts are well aware of what softshell jackets are and what they do best. You may even know from experience how great the fabric is for trousers as well. What you may not know is the difference between a pair of “normal” walking trousers and a pair of “high-performance”softshell […]

UV protection. Ever heard of it? Why, of course you have! From all those sunscreen adverts and going on holiday to the beach with mum and dad, right? Well, back then you may not have cared so much or really taken heed of what mum was saying. But now that we’re all grown up, the […]

Down. That fluffy stuff that waterfowl like geese and ducks have. Their wonderful, insulating down feathers have been keeping us humans nice and toasty warm for a long time now. And today, it’s all over the place: in our sleeping bags, pillows and, among other things, our jackets! The latter is what we’re going to […]

Who doesn’t know this situation: you once again want to compare apples and pears. You will quickly realize that they are both fruits, but have some significant differences. This situation is similar to that of the chemical materials polyamide (PA) and polyethylene (PE). They are both part of mountain sports with sewn slings (sewn runners) […]
