SlingFin wants to change the way you think about tents.

Yes this is the inside of a tent, but this is not just any tent; this is the BFD!  @ 23 ft across and 415 square ft weighing in at only 72 pounds this is the largest tent for the weight available for mountaineering. And its incredibly strong too, it has proven itself on Everest.

SlingFin is making headlines!

No, its not because of the reports of U.F.O sightings on Gilman St..

It’s about L.F.D sightings on Everest!

The L.F.D in Camp 2 (21,300 ft) Photo- Mountain Trip.

“When a team of climbers reached the summit of Mount Everest on Thursday, they had a significant advantage over other teams this spring, many of whom were forced to turn back short of the world’s tallest peak by bad weather.”…..

 

……”Our goal is not to build this business up and sell it off. We’re not a marketing company; we’re a product-driven company that in the long run will translate into relationships with the people who appreciate this gear and will support it. In the short run it will be very challenging, but this is the way to properly brand the business in the long run.” Read the entire article here.

MOUNTAIN TRIP IS ON TOP OF THE WORLD!

Thanks to the strong and experienced guides at Mountain Trip, they had a 100% summit success!

All the comforts of home in our big dome! Laurie brings sushi to base camp.

 

And what from what i’ve seen from the crew so far, this group does it right. Sushi at base camp? Labatts beer at Camp 3 @24,500ft ? ¬†Days of extras oxygen at Camp 4? Sounds like Mountain Trip pulls out all the stops for their clients, add to that guides like Scott Woolums and Bill Allen who have spent more nights in the back country than an alaskan bear cub, and you have a recipe for a solid expedition team.
