Mountain Equipment 'All Roads Lead to Scotland' Competition

To mark the launch of the 'All Roads Lead to Scotland' preview we're giving one lucky person the chance to WIN an updated Tupilak Jacket and Pant worth £730.

When we went in search of feedback on the Tupilak Jacket and Pant, we went to some of the keenest climbers, the heaviest users of kit that we knew. Professional guides and instructors who were out climbing under the siege of the Scottish winter, sometimes for 30 days in a row, were unanimously positive. Even our most trusted destroyers of prototypes seemed unable to find any chink in the Tupilak’s armour.

Then Nick Bullock arrived, his test jacket delivered personally by the man himself with a glint in his eye, its main body a fragment of its former self. He and his battle-weary Tupilak had fought their way up some of the biggest and baddest hard mixed climbs going and the scars were evident for all to see. Back to back days at grade VIII and above, hooking, thrutching, clearing and simply grovelling on desperate repeats and hard-won first ascents on a seminal line-up of venues, Dubh Loch, Ben Nevis, Stob Coire nan Lochan, Beinn Eighe.

That no one else had managed to even get close to this point of destruction was hardly the point, our finest climbing jacket had to be truly 'Bullock proof'.

And so, for this coming season, the Tupilak Jacket and Pant have moved up a gear, now constructed entirely from the one fabric that didn’t falter or flinch under the onslaught of a Bullock test piece. With our battle-proven GORE-TEX® Pro 80D face fabric throughout, the best designed hard shell jacket and pant available for the most serious climbing is now more than tough enough even for the one person who is hardest on their kit that we know.

Tupilak Jacket

A technical shell jacket ideally suited to alpine and expedition climbing on the steepest lines and biggest faces.

A serious, stripped back shell that shines on the most difficult modern lines. The combination of GORE-TEX® Pro 80D fabric, Alpine fit and our proven Super Alpine Hood make this one of the finest and most robust climbing jackets available.

Holding nothing back except the elements, the perfect mountain pant for hard routes and gruelling conditions.

These full spec mountaineering pants give total protection and mobility in the worst conditions imaginable. Using GORE-TEX® Pro 80D fabric throughout they easily resist abrasion in ice choked chimneys and further reinforcement protects against cuts from racked screws.

I've got the recently superseded generation Tupilak (2 years old) and the lighter fabric, on sleeves and chest, rips at will so fair play for recognising the weakness and beefing up the outer throughout. Cut (for me anyway) and hood are peerless by the way.

seems a bit harsh that only one person has the chance to win, they are bound to be the winner. ;) I would agree with the above, many manufacturers jacket's hoods don't fit over helmets.
