Huzefa, the founder, started making his own vapor barrier outdoor quilt in 2012 as a “make your own gear” project for his mountaineering expedition in the Himalayas with countless hours spent on research, going through several design iterations and testing them out on expeditions.
In 2019, confident with the value the quilt he had designed he decided to offer to make a quilt for others. A diverse set of adventurers took him up on his offer. One, Peter Van Geit, took the quilt on his 4-month trans Himalayan 2019 expedition where the quilt was subjected to no-holds barred testing in various terrains and weather situations.
Now, we’re expanding beyond quilts. We’re working on an outdoor mitten with designs aimed to increase its dexterity without losing its warmth. We’ve also started venturing into ultralight shelters – our first product is a hybrid of a bivy and a tent. This bivy tent came about from a need of another bold adventurer who wanted lightweight but reliable gear in her pack.
