Stylish and light, these new models have a totally new construction that brings together exclusively sourced new materials. Blended by our designers, these new fabrics create a robust, slim, laminate centred on our incredible new LST (load spread technology) webbing. Shaped across a range of belts it's a combination that provides maximum flexibility but minimum weight and bulk.
Our subtle designs with consistent, classic colours are further enhanced by combining compact, smooth, new Ziplock buckles with a slim new webbing on waist and legs. Fully featured, with men's and women's models, complementary new racking systems, new haul loops, ice racks and a super durable finish, there's a model for everyone.
The Wild Country range is split into three complementary groups, with three levels of features to choose from depending on your requirements and the Blaze, Flare, and Boost offer a high level of performance at a superb pricepoint.
Blaze Men's £60
Stylish and adaptable, the Blaze is multi-discipline model that lightens the load without sacrificing performance. Designed with a subtle shaping across waist and legs that sits sweetly with our exclusive 'Load Spread Technology' webbing there's a comfortable and substantial feel to this lithe and light unit. A bestseller, which sports our super secure Ziplock buckles on legs and waist for the slickest fastening, it's finished with four gear loops for big loads and is fantastic all round rig at a very good price.
Created for cragging, with a host of great features and built to go the distance in summer or winter this is a perfect package.
Features: 'Load Spread Technology' laminate belt and leg loops, DWC500 durable outer, 20mm Ziplock buckle waist, 16mm Ziplock leg loops, Four gear racks, 'Batwing' belt shaping, 16mm 22kn Belay loop, Accessory loop. Trad, sport, multi-pitch, winter, alpine.Five sizes XS - XL.
Flare Women's £60
A brilliant balance of weight, fit and features this is a superb, multi faceted all rounder. A quality choice using our 'Load Spread Technology' webbing, the Flare is not simply designed to complement a men's model, but is adapted more rigorously to the female form; with a longer rise and altered waist and leg ratios providing a closer, cleaner fit. Add in our slick, Ziplock waist and legs and four gear loops across all sizes (great for trad outings too) this is a classic choice as an all round option.
Tailored to women; light, stylish, comfortable and strong, the Flare is a neat package that has proved irresistibly popular.
Features: Women's specific sizing, 'Load Spread Technology' laminate belt and leg loops, DWC500 durable outer, 20mm Ziplock buckle waist, 16mm Ziplock leg loops, Four gear racks, 'Batwing' belt shaping, 16mm 22kn Belay loop, Accessory loop. Trad, multi-pitch, sport, winter, alpine. Three sizes XS, S, M.
Uncluttered, slimline and smooth, the Boost is built for movement, indoors or out, and is a sports climbers dream. Constructed with our 'Load Spread Technology' webbing it's light enough for redpoints yet supportive enough for dogging and short, sharp, sport falls. A Ziplock waist cinches smoothly and stays locked drop after drop, while light, unobtrusive elastication keep the leg loops in place. Four gear loops mean plenty of choice and ensure mega sport pitches or shorter trad lines are no problem.
With clean lines and a sharp style this is a sport orientated option that comes into its own when weight matters most.
