Are you a backcountry explorer? Do you walk or climb in an area far from roads or trails. Are you looking for a place that has little to no access, but is filled with wild animals and plants. Then our products are for you.
Why wood, leather and brass?
After years of testing walking sticks made of aluminum and carbon fibre, we could never get the right balance of strength and lightness. Using wood makes a “dead-silent” material for stalking, compared to hollow tube trekking poles. In cold weather, wood keeps your hands warm due to solid core, and traditional tube poles have a pocket of air that cools quickly – making for cold hands. Leather is sourced from saddlery cuts, and help protect the fine finish or your optics and rifle stocks. Brass will not corrode, is lightweight and beautiful.
As the use of wool in the outdoor adventure clothing industry is making a strong return, we are using wood for many reasons. It’s super strong material that’s biodegradable, meaning that when all those aluminum trekking poles are still in the landfill, given exposure to light, these sticks will be long gone. We use an Australian penetrating sealent/stain which is oil based, but low impact environmentally. If cared for, you’ll be handing these trekking poles down to your next generation of explorers.
