UKC Advertising Manager Rob Greenwood will be visiting Mammut HQ in Switzerland later this week and taking a selection of questions to ask their design team - what would you like to know?

One question asked on the forums recently was what effect leaving your ropes to dry on a radiator would have on their safety and performance, but what else would you like to know?

Ideas include:

  • What is the difference between the impact force of a tripe rated rope vs. a standard single or double?
  • How do the Realisation Shorts, featuring the integrated harness, work and how would you go about washing them?
  • When testing the prototypes, how do you go about refining each product and where do you test them?

The top five questions posted will be answered by a member of Mammut's design team and published next week.
