Ueli Steck Helps Create the Ultimate Alpine Speed Climbing Kit

It has to be light, simple, durable and it has to fit me.

Although Swiss alpinist Ueli Steck is busy breaking all speed records for alpine speed climbing over ice, snow and rock from the Swiss Alps to the Himalayas, he has found the time to collaborate with Mountain Hardware to create a new series of ultralight gear. When speed is important, being efficient, functional and light is key. “The Ultimate Alpine Speed Climbing Kit” system will have a sleeping bag, tent, backpacks and the apparel will consist of baselayers, midlayers, down jacket and pant.

If you’re like Ueli and need your jacket to weigh under 2 ounces, perhaps the Ghost Whisperer Anorak is for you. Check it out and the rest of the line in Spring 2012.
