The Pyramid Nano Mosquito Net Single maximises coverage with minimal weight (only 137 grams!) and pack size. They are now 60% lighter and half the bulk of our standard pyramid nets! These new nets use an elasticised hanging cord and elasticised draw cord hem to keep it under your mattress. 15D Ultra-Vis mesh makes for a very light mesh with great visibility and airflow. Ultra-Vis is a 15 denier, 80 hole/cm2 hexagonal Nylon mesh. Being a lighter, more compact mesh than Ultra-Mesh, we use it for our Nano mosquito nets and headnets. It is the mesh we use when packed weight and space are at a premium. We use black Ultra-Vis in our Nano Mosquito Headnets for optimal vision, and grey Ultra-Vis in our Nano Mosquito Nets to strike a balance point between visibility through the mesh, and ensuring the mesh can be seen easily. This model is Permethrin treated, which is an insecticide that will daze mosquitos on contact, and on repeated contact the insect will die. The dosage used on the nets does not harm humans. Permethrin treatment will dissipate with time and washing. Permethrin is a very safe and effective insectcide which the WHO recommends for the reduction of Malaria and other vector borne diseases.

Sea to summit:
In 1984 a small group of climbers from the world's flattest continent pulled off an audacious ascent of Mount Everest - they put a new route up the north face in lightweight style with no oxygen or sherpa support. Six years later, one of the summiteers, Tim Macartney-Snape decided to return to Everest after he realized neither he nor any other person who had climbed the mountain had truly climbed the entire 8,848 meters, as that would have meant starting from sea level. That is, no one had yet climbed it from "sea to summit".
In the spring of 1990 Tim had a swim in the tepid waters of India's Bay of Bengal then set off on foot across the Gangetic plain toward the distant Himalayan foothills. Four months later, after climbing alone from Base Camp and without the assistance of oxygen, he set foot once again on the highest point on earth. Tim's solo ascent of Mt. Everest was named the "Sea to Summit" expedition.
Back in Australia, Tim joined forces with climbing friend, sewing enthusiast and design guru Roland Tyson to build a business that could make use of their knowledge of the outdoors to create truly ingenious, well-made but affordable outdoor equipment. They named their company Sea to Summit after Tim's expedition and the business prospered.
