Altra is a brand of running and outdoor footwear from Colorado, USA. Although it is a relatively young brand (it was founded in 1998), it has already earned an excellent reputation among runners and long-distance trekkers.
The hallmarks of Altra running shoes are the wide toe box and zero drop (heel and toe height are level), which ensure maximum comfort while allowing the foot to move naturally.
In addition, they are highly breathable, durable and have quality soles with perfect properties for unpaved terrain and asphalt.
The Asolo brand focuses on the production of low trekking and leisure shoes and hiking boots for professionals and casual hikers. Asolo's goal is to offer comfortable footwear for year-round use at any altitude and on any terrain. Including shoes that are great for a combination of more difficult climbs and rock climbing, for example.
The company's tradition dates back to the 1970s, so it's no wonder that thanks to constant innovation and the use of modern technology, it is one of the most popular and affordable footwear that meets the needs of the terrain - strong, stable, breathable, and impervious to water and cold. In the 1990s, the Asolo brand focused particularly on the perfect function of the shoe on the foot, and its efforts soon bore fruit. The FSN 95 won an award from American Outdoor Magazine and was named the best trekking shoe of the year.

The Climbing Technology brand is a good friend of all climbers. It has been on the market for more than 25 years and is a trademark of Aludesign SpA. Its headquarters can be found between the Italian cities of Bergamo and Lecco, in an area with a long climbing tradition.
As passionate climbers, the people behind Climbing Technology know well that quality climbing equipment must be simple, functional and safe. They have succeeded in meeting these conditions so perfectly that the AlpineUp and ClickUp belays won the Industry Award at the Outdoor 2009 in Friedrichshafen.
The quality is guaranteed by the fact that they do not outsource the production and all development and production takes place in their own facilities in Italy. In addition to climbing equipment, Climbing Technology also produces equipment for working at height, sport climbing or for secured routes (via ferrata).
The first backpack was produced by the Czech company Doldy (then Marmor) in 1988. Today the range includes a variety of backpacks and rucksacks for everyday wear, summer, winter and outdoor sports and a range of accessories such as sports sleeves and wallets.
At Doldy, they know that a backpack is only as good as its weakest link. That's why they make most of their backpacks from extremely durable Cordura. Back systems are constantly evolving and pushing the envelope, and so are such "little things" as buckles and zippers. These are bought from the world's best manufacturers known for the quality of their products - Duraflex and YKK.

The Italian company Fuchs Technik is famous for its shoe dryers that use a very gentle drying method - heat and air flow at the same time. This guarantees fast and safe drying of ski boots, boots and leather boots. Simply place them on the spikes, which fold under the weight of the boots and switch on the drying process. This results in lower energy consumption, as all the spikes of the rack do not have to be in operation at the same time.
The Fuchs Technik brand supplies dryers not only for offices and homes, but also for hotels and mountain huts. The Fuchs Home 3 and 5 dryers can be used to create an entire heating wall, where the energy savings are more than noticeable.

In 1967, outdoor enthusiasts lacked sufficient quality equipment. One of them, Jeff Lowe, decided to change that and set out to make backpacks that would meet the exact needs of hikers and be durable at the same time.
The quality is guaranteed by the precision workmanship you'll notice in every seam - multiple stitching, double bottomed packs, extremely stressed parts of the pack secured with special stitching. Both the fabrics used and the complete backpacks are tested for water resistance, abrasion resistance, colour fastness and load.
Even the details of the backpack, such as the buckles, do not escape the tests. The straps of Lowe Alpine backpacks are filled with special foam that promotes a comfortable fit, reducing the level of abrasion and the pain of carrying even a really heavy pack.

Austrian company Nortec is based right at the foot of the Alps in Villach, but its roots go back to Italy. It was in the province of Trevisana that Enrico Granzotto began manufacturing the first slip-resistant products for snow and ice in 1979. The established Turtles brand was taken over by Nortec in 2002, making it the European leader in quick-release non-marking shoes for trail running and hiking.
Only the best ideas will bring the best climbing. And the Czech brand Ocún has a full range of them. This story is proof that even a small workshop can grow into a company that earns the respect of climbers all over the world within 20 years. The roots of the brand go back to the sandstone towers of the Bohemian Paradise, where its name comes from.
The company entered the market in 1998 with a collection of harnesses and an unusual invention at the time - the bouldering mat, which is now a good friend of every boulderer. Three years later, Ocún came up with a unique design of paired gloves and was the first in the world to start mass production.
With each collection, they strive to push their products one step further and in 2010 they take home the award for the FTS damping system at the ISPO in Munich. In 2014, Ocún merged with sister brand Rock Pillar.
It all started with a passion for caves. Ferdinand Petzl loved caves. And he was able to put his experience of moving along rock walls underground to use, first as a manufacturer of caving equipment for himself and his friends and later in his own company Petzl.
Since its founding in the 1930s, Petzl has quickly become a leading manufacturer of equipment for climbing and working at height. And no wonder. In addition to replacing rope ladders with durable ropes, Ferdinand Petzl is credited with inventing the first blocker, rappelling brake and even the headlamp.
Petzl retains his status as a pioneer and innovator to this day. In fact, the constant development, testing and marketing of equipment that makes it easier to move at heights or increases safety is Petzl's daily bread.
The Czech brand Pinguin was founded in 1989 and immediately focused on shortage goods - sleeping bags and jackets. Within a year of its existence, it expanded its product range to include lightweight double-walled tents, which were in demand among hikers and mountaineers.
The brand name is synonymous with the resilience of a plant growing wild on the slopes of the South American Andes, in the rocky and inhospitable environment of strong wind, frost and snow - Bromelia Pinguin.
Today, the Pinguin brand is mainly known as a specialist in sleeping bags, functional jackets and tents, although its range is much wider. The years of experience show, and if you've grown to love the brand when you buy one of its products, you certainly won't go wrong with another.
Today, the sought-after Pinguin tents can provide comfortable comfort in the extreme conditions of alpine expeditions and family camping holidays. The growing range of A.C.D. waterproof membrane jackets is also popular.
Another successful step is the Pinguin backpacks for 2020, which come with a 12-year warranty.
The RAB story began in 1981 in the attic of a small terraced house in Sheffield, where Rab Carrington made the first sleeping bag to bear his name. In sewing his first product, he capitalised on years spent moving around in the mountains and was finally able to turn ideas for improving commonly used equipment into reality.
Satisfied feedback on the sleeping bags spread quickly and RAB slowly transformed from a loft factory that made sleeping bags for a small circle of friends into a brand sought after by climbers and adventurers far and wide. RAB's status as a pioneer continues today. It designs its products to withstand the elements and serve well on multi-day treks and in the extreme conditions of the Himalayan peaks. Maximum functionality, reliability and minimum weight are the basis of every RAB product, whether it is a sleeping bag, jacket or tent.
In addition to gloves, the Rab brand also offers a range of clothing, tents and sleeping bags. If you are interested in a RAB product that we don't have in our e-shop, please contact us and we will let you know the availability and price immediately. We order approximately every 2-3 weeks.

The Czech company Warmpeace started in 1986 like most enthusiasts - at home on their knees. At first it was just down jackets and sleeping bags bringing that "comfort in warmth" that later became the brand name, but gradually the range was inevitably expanded. In 1994, Warmpeace acquired the Gore licence and began sewing with Gore-Tex and Windstopper materials.
Today you can find the Warmpeace brand virtually all over the world and in a much wider range of products - down sleeping bags, jackets, trousers, functional shirts, sweatshirts, gloves and other equipment.
Its popularity, gained at a time when there was virtually no choice in the outdoor clothing market, has also been reinforced by its excellent price/performance ratio.
