Experience ultimate relaxation in our lightweight hammock. Not only is it super comfortable, but also very easy to set up - you just have to find the right place to tie it. It comes with a built-in compression sack making it easy to take with you on the go.
The Amplify Down Light is a great sleeping bag for warmer conditions, weighing in at 595g and a comfort rating of 9°C. Compact and light, pair this with a thermal liner, and your summer nights will be snug and comfortable.
The Lunar 2 Person 3 Season tent is highly breathable and ventilated, making it ideal for those summer nights in the mountains. With two doors and vestibules, opening it up can make it very roomy whilst keeping you cool. Remove the Y sheet and you’ll be staring into the stars.
Weighing in at 410g, with an R-rating of 1.8, this light and packable mattress is an essential summer companion. Perfect for lazing around, or getting the perfect night’s sleep.
The contour sleeping pad should be a staple piece of kit on all your overnight/multi-day excursions. With an R-rating of 2, this not only improves the insulation of your sleeping system but also offers a comfortable seat on the floor after a long day of trekking. It’s fantastic for the campsite or even the beach!
Nothing is more important than hydration in the upcoming heat! Our hydration bladders’ simple click-to-secure mechanism makes opening and sealing your hydration bladder simple and easy. Hang this bladder up at camp, and it’ll provide enough water for all your utilities without the pain of moving back and forth between water sources - a staple item for any pack.
Summer means less to carry without all the extra bulky layers, food and sleeping bag filling. The Venus III 65L is the perfect capacity to carry your overnight essentials, with multiple access points to easily access what you need. The adjustable back system and a split toe hip belt ensure your comfort, whilst still staying breathable.
Hiking poles have several advantages, which can extend your time and comfort for those long mountain adventures. The Hyrax’s FastLock system for easy length adjustment means you can change the length of your pole as needed in an instant. The superlight composite construction means no additional weight for your treks.
A staple First Ascent piece of clothing, our Nueva’s and Luxors are famous on the trail. Lightweight with UPF30 protection, our Cooldry moisture-wicking technology disperses sweat away from the body for quick evaporation, keeping you comfortable during your adventure.
There you have it - the ultimate summer kit list. Enjoy the warm weather confident in your gear, which will work as hard as you do under the sun. We hope you stay cool, dry and hydrated on your next adventure!
