Our product philosophy can be summed up in a single keyword - minimalist.
By minimalist, we mean creating hunting gear that is effective and efficient.
Effective as in solving the essential tasks. No more, no less.
Efficient as in solving those tasks with the least amount of effort.
And by the way, the least amount of effort is both about efficiency in use and about using as few components as possible when we build the products. That’s all well and good, but what does it really mean, product wise, you may ask.
Our pursuit for effectiveness and efficiency manifests itself in three ways:
Achieving these results is a continuous effort. Although we release products, we believe that our job is never really done. One can always learn more and refine a feature.
To help us keep improving, we are guided by five guidelines for building effective and efficient gear.
"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The size chart measurements are body measurements. Garments will have further allowance for insulating layers.
For example, if your chest measures 100 cm / 40” you should select size Medium.
If you select a Light Ventile Jacket with a slimmer fit you will have room for a base layer and a light mid-layer under the jacket. If you select the Ventile Parka, which has a looser fit, you will have room for a base layer and a heavier mid layer as well as space for trapped air.
Each size (M, L, XL etc.) come in a regular and long size. The two key differences are "height of back" and arm length.
Chest (1): measured during normal breathing whilst standing erect and the tape-measure passed under the armpits and across the chest.
Back height (2): Measured on your back, from where your back of neck meets your shoulders and down to the level of your navel.
Waist (3): measured at natural waistline, between top of hip bone and lower ribs, just around your navel.
Arms (4): tape-measure your straight arm lifted to a horizontal position. Measure from your neck to your wrist bone. Please note, the garment will reach further than your wrist bone, this point is only used as reference for sizing.
