“The Night on the Glacier” at the Chamonix Mountain Festival

Valandre and SlingFin joined forces to offer a special one night under the stars on the glaciers high above Chamonix. There were only 6 spots available (fully booked) and the participants got to test Valandre's new expedition sleeping bags and SlingFin's SafeHouse tents. Add in Guide François Lombard (former world champion in rock climbing), fondue, white wine and a snow storm and what resulted was simply described as a “magical” atmosphere. Check out some on the photos and mark in on your calendar for next year's to do list.

The OneUp has OneUp’ed itself!

The OneUp has been reimagined – bigger and better for 2014. The new floor area fills up the entire WebTruss to sleep 4+, but can also be clipped back to create vestibule space like the original rectangular body. It also has 4 windows/vents and 2 doors for unsurpassed ventilation.

They are being produced at the factory as we speak and will be available at the end of June. If you are interested, we are currently accepting deposits or pay-in-advance to reserve tents. Act quickly because the first batch of 10 already sold out!

new 3-season tents in the works!

SlingFin 3-season tent

SlingFin is known for making some of the strongest mountaineering tents in the world.  We set out to make lighter and stronger 3-season tents that are more versatile than any other tents on the market.  Most of our new designs use a combination of tent poles and trekking poles, which make our tents much stronger and creates roomier vestibules.

Significant features of our 3-season tents

  • Length. Most companies are saving weight and cost by making tents that are smaller. Our tents are longer and actually fit most users, while still providing equal or greater strength at equal or less weight.
  • The WebTruss makes it much easier for users to pitch tents in high winds and difficult conditions.
  • Our new designs do not have guyout requirements for the trekking poles.

Congratulations to Tyler Armstrong – the youngest person in recorded history to reach the summit of Argentina’s Aconcagua mountain, which at 22,841 feet is the tallest peak in the Western and Southern hemispheres. Tyler Armstrong (9 years old) of Yorba Linda reached the summit on Christmas Eve with his father Kevin and our good friend, Tibetan sherpa and Mountain Link guide , Lhawang Dhondup, who has climbed Mount Everest multiple times. They used the following SlingFin tents to reach the summit: OneUp, HardShell and SafeHouse2.
