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.
Sea to Summit design and manufacture cool and useful gear for the outdoor lifestyle. From cooking products and bags through to sleeping bags and mats, this forward-thinking company create useful products that are nimble and light enough for any adventure. Sea to Summit understand the importance of escape and take great pride in creating authentic outdoor products with a “no worries” Australian attitude.
My review of Sea to Summit Event GaitersBy: John Mansell on 8 April 2019I purchased a pair of Sea to Summit gaiters a couple of months ago and last week I had the first real opportunity to try them out. I did a brisk 5 hour walk through the rainforest, the last 3 hours in steady rain, pushing through low shrubs without wet weather gear, I wouldn't have been any wetter if I had been for a swim. It took over 2 hours before my feet got wet and that only happened when the water finally worked its way down through my socks and wouldn't have happened at all if I had the rain pants on. I had plenty of leeches on my boots and gaiters but none were able to latch on to my body. I would recommend these to anyone for leg and leech protection and to keep the feet dry.
By: Sheree on 25 March 2019I bought these gaiters specifically for the South Coast Track in Tasmania as I knew that there’d be mud, mud and more mud. The lower parts of my trousers protected by the gaiters remained clean and dry despite walking through the mud, immersing myself into a patch of thigh deep bog and walking through multiple river crossings. I can’t say the same for the rest of me.
