OutDoor by ISPO | Hiking & Travelling
Christian Hessing, certified mountain guide: "If you ask me what my perfect outdoor moment is, then I really have to think about it. There are so many perfect outdoor moments. If you have set yourself a goal, for example, and then you reach the goal - a summit, a pass, a crossing - and the vast expanse is spread out in front of you, then that, is definitely a very special moment." OutDoor by ISPO has created special moments at the summit meeting. A selection of products from various exhibitors could be tested directly on the mountain for a whole day. The North Face relies on Futurelight for hiking; it’s a breathable membrane that’s also waterproof. Konstantin Dehlinger, Technical Representative, The North Face: "The Tente jacket is perfect for a very young target group, that likes mountain sports but doesn´t want to compromise when traveling or traveling in the city. So, we have an alpine cut, very light packable material and extreme breathability through our new membrane." If you want to hike, you need the right footwear. Christian Hessing, certified mountain guide: "Humans are walking mammals and we need boots that don’t hurt our feet. Many people make the mistake of buying boots that are too big and then they slip and give you blisters and that then spoils the fun. It’s important to get good advice: so go to a specialty store and try different models. The LOWA Revolt combines the sneaker look with the DNA of hiking boots - without sacrificing performance. Der LOWA Revolt kombiniert den Sneaker-Look mit der DNA von Wanderschuhen - ohne Einbuße in der Performance. " Vaude has optimized its hiking backpacks with improved air circulation. Florian Schmid, Product Manager, Vaude: "When you're in hotter temperatures like today, the Aeroflex system ensures that you get plenty of air on your back, it wicks sweat away and helps you to sweat less on your back; so it's not as warm on your back and your body doesn’t heat up so much." If you would like to spend more time outdoors, Exped's Mira II is a clever, super-light three-season tent for two. Grüezi Bag Sleeping bags have a wool-down filling, which ensures a dry sleeping environment. Markus Wiesböck, CEO, Grüezi Bag: "We have now developed a sleeping bag that is 100 % compostable. Now it only takes 200 days to compost fully, instead of 400 years! It needs the bacteria and also the temperature of the compost." For the perfect end to your hiking day, you also need the right cookware. Gerald Palm, Country Manager Germany, Primus: "The idea is to have mainly light materials, so, for our cooker we use titanium, which only weighs a few grams. The cooker weighs just 100 grams, the cartridge weighs 200 grams and the pot weighs 50 grams; so you really have a very small pack size. The main materials are titanium, and aluminum in the pot."
