Nolan Fritts from Slingfile in Berkeley CA started to talk high altitude expedition at our booth at Liberty Mountain. So we opened the chat, and explained Valandre’s concept of “Gear” designed for “High altitude non ox speed climbing”. Trying several bags one by one, I cooked up Nolan for the BIG test: The combination of our high altitude Combi suit + the La Fayette. Thanks Nolan…..we had fun…..and shared the passion

Of the 301 product entries, the jury chose a total of 46 to receive an award; eleven of those entries received a GOLD award for special achievement in terms of design and innovation.
Mountain-climbing equipment (An open and difficult category):
A newly developed chamber system prevents the down from sliding around in this jacket. It was specially designed for use in the high mountains at low temperatures to allow for an extremely wide range of movement.
Jury’s opinion:“The right jacket for cold weather in the high mountains. It has been perfectly crafted; there are as few seams as possible and it provides a great fit. A fantastic product for the coldest regions in the world!”
Wednesday 29.06, the jury of the Outdoor Industry Award 2011, informed and announced that the Immelman has been Awarded.
At the moment, it’s not known what kind of Award the Immelman has received (GOLD, SILVER or BRONZE). This will be announced at the Award Ceremony on the fashion stage, July 14th at 17:30 in Friedrichshafen.
After the GOLD Award in 2009 for the Bloody Mary, a second Award in a row for the Immelman….is not bad.
Since the first presentation at the Outdoor Retailer, we have continued the development of the Immelman.
Latest product information concerning the Immelman.
The technical key issue in the Immelman is the combination of articulation and a compartment system, that fixes the insulating down exactly where it is designed to be. To raise the performance of the Immelman, we have increased the total number of body side and inner sleeve compartment from 6 to 9. This increase in lateral compartments, offers a better guarantee that the insulation is maintained in the correct place, once the arms in movements and raised up.
