Brigantes Presents – High Angled Solutions – Hilleberg Allak 3 in Sand

Wednesday, May 15th, 2019

Simple, remarkably light, and completely free standing, the Allak is an excellent all-rounder.

Since its introduction over 10 years ago, the two-person Allak has been one of Hilleberg’s most popular tents. For 2019, they have introduced a three-person version, the Allak 3, and renaming the original model the Allak 2.

Both remarkably light yet impressively strong Allak models are well-suited for anything from summer paddling to winter ski mountaineering, as the outer tent fabric is Kerlon 1200 and with its 9mm poles, makes for a very lightweight yet supremely stable tent.

Hilleberg’s Allak 3 is light enough for mobile journeys, where you move your camp every day, and its two-entrance construction allows for superb ventilation options in warm weather. At the same time, the Allak’s three-pole dome structure is strong enough for summer or winter base camp use in all but the worst conditions, and the fully freestanding construction make it ideal for tough pitching conditions, such as rocky ground and sand.

In addition, its two integrated vestibules are set parallel to the sleeping area, giving excellent access to gear storage space as well as ease of entry and exit. Mountaineers appreciate both the Allak’s freestanding design, compact footprint, and its roominess, as well as its ability to deal with snow loading. And taller adventurers find its length a welcome comfort.

All these factors make Hilleberg the ideal solution for all military deployments, whether in areas of heat or extreme cold as well as being lightweight, easily portable and available in Sand.

ORSS 19 – Two Cool New Products From Klymit

Thursday, January 31st, 2019

Over the years, Klymit has really grown as a company and we always enjoy seeing what new products they’re going to introduce. This OR is no exception with the new Moon Dog Bed and Versa Luxe Blanket.

The Moon Dog Bed takes Klymit’s inflatable sleeping pad technology and applies it to man’s best friend. They’ve added a removable fleece top to keep puppy warm and comfy. In fact, throughout the day, many a K9 showgoer took a rest on one of these beds. The Moon Dog Bed is available in two sizes and rolls up for use on the go.

Rover doesn’t have to be the only one in the family wrapped in fleecy comfort. The new Versa Luxe Blanket is a generous 80″ x 58″ and combined a polyester ripstop shell with a fleece liner. In between those two outer layers is Klymaloft insulation, the same material used in their sleeping bags.

The design features a foot box, handwarmer pockets in each corner as well as corner snaps and a cinch cord on one end.

We encourage everyone keep a mini survival kit in your vehicle all year long, but Winter is definitely here and you need to be prepared.

We suggest you consider the Survive Outdoors Longer Heavy Duty Emergency Blanket or one of their other blankets or bivies, based on your needs. They are available with OD or Orange face fabrics and are backed by reflective foil material (90% heat reflective) which will help keep you warm.

Wind and rainproof, it can be used as a ground cloth, blanket, sleeping bag, or shelter. The Heave Duty Emergency Blanket is 5′ x 8′ and weighs 7.9 oz. This one also slightly thicker (2.5 mil) than other emergency blankets which are 1 mil thick*.
