”There are so many fun sports and I simply can’t keep from trying to learn new things. But I have always been particularly thrilled by mountains. They are a never-ending source of challenges and also a relentless master. I think that's why I got hooked on climbing and skiing. Its the same with the ocean, water is incredibly fascinating. To sail around the world, or at least a part of it, is something I am dreaming of.”
"To zip on a Power Houdi is like getting a big hug! "
From skiing around the corner to expeditions to the Antarctic, Pakistan, China and Kyrgyzstan IFMGA-mountainguide Carl's love of the outdoors is clear. Where he found the time to do a PhD in robotics we have no idea! In addition he is one of our fitting models, helping us to improve and optimise our products.
Spending more days outside than in, he knows what works.
"Smart design, with insulation only where needed allows you to get away with one layer less. Before the Alpine Alphies I often wore double base layers but while climbing I got too warm. Thanks to light garments that breath and heat on the right spots you neither have to be cold, or loose out on performance, due to overheating. Cloud 9 is my latest favourite, the best thing that has happened since the Powder Houdi."
