”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. It’s 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."
From skiing around the world 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 robotic is a mystery to us! In addition he is one of our fitting models and field testers, helping us to improve and optimize our products. Spending more days outside than inside, 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 yet warm garments with excellent breathability they keep me from being cold as well as keep me from loosing out on performance due to overheating. Cloud 9 is my latest favourite, the best thing that has happened since the Powder Houdi.”
