Summiteer - New UK made rucksacks and lightweight Mountain Tent Product News

Having spent a year building up a reputation for great quality products, we are branching out from our renowned Glow Worm sleeping bags and starting two new projects: Cumbrian-made rucksacks that use an RPET fabric made out of recycled plastic bottles and a super spacious lightweight mountain tent, the 'Haven 200'. Above all else we care about three things; Quality products, fair working conditions and the environment.

The Summiteer Haven 200 Tent

RRP: £320 Crowdfunder Price: £190

The Summiteer Haven 200 is all about maximum space and minimum weight. Many alpinists, climbers and backpackers have a need for a light weight tent weighing 2kg or less but find the compromise in space too much, making their experience less enjoyable and less practical. Using a 20d silnylon flysheet and super lightweight components, the Summiteer Haven offers a solution. Designed for the alpinist duo waiting out bad weather before a big ascent, or the Lakeland hill walker wanting something a bit more pleasant to stay in whilst bagging peaks. The Summiteer Haven is set to be a benchmark in the lightweight 2 man tent market and due to it's versatility suits a range of users in a range of applications.
