Ortik galardoada com “Guides Choice Award 2011”

 

O Tupek Guide da Ortik foi galardoado com o “Guides Choice Award 2011” da American Alpine Institute”.

O prémio é atribuido após um longo e intensivo período de utilização por guias de montanha do AAI. Os produtos distinguidos são considerados como o ‘best of the best’.

“The Tupek provided piece of mind to our guides climbing in Alaska that at any point they could deploy a two-person shelter and escape from the wind and blowing snow within the matter of a minute or two.

At 525 grams and the size of a 1 liter water bottle, it was small and light enough that our testers had no problems packing it along on any fast and light ascent that they were doing.

The Tupek can be set up using a variety of configurations including with or without trekking poles, one or two people, and can even be hung from a wall.

The floor of the Tupek is joined at the middle with velcro, but can be separated and pushed to the sides in the event that the user is wearing crampons.

A small foot well can even be dug in snow so that the users can sit facing each other comfortably. If an overnight bivy is inevitable, two people can stretch out in reasonable comfort reclined against their packs.

A door on one side makes getting in and out easy, and multiple vents keep condensation to a minimum inside.”
