Security first

We know today, that all our tents are used by professionals in both Arctic and Antarctic. With our experience we also know that any tent can serve in good conditions. But it is not our goal to compete with cheap products made in the far East. We know from experience during many years, how bad weather can be. From this knowledge we have made the best selection of raw-materials, and do our best, from all training and wisdom we have, to make the ultimate tent for survival and comfort in the worst possible conditions we can think of. Our products are not cheap. We pick the best materials from all over the world to make the best product possible. We know that life is at stake for our users and costumers.
