Australia’s most technical and award-winning outdoor brand has been officially launched in India by Adventure Gear Box Pvt. Ltd, itself an authentic Indian company, owned by climbers. As the adventure travel industry expands in India, more and more people are looking for authentic experiences over generic holidays. High-quality, trustworthy gear is now a real priority for travelers, outdoors enthusiasts, as well as adventure athletes and explorers.
Sea to Summit is built on legitimate adventure foundations and the origins of the company began in 1983 in Perth, Western Australia when lightweight outdoor products were hard to find and Roland Tyson, a keen climber and adventurer, began designing and making his own gear. In 1990, Roland made equipment for fellow climber and Australia’s first Everest Summiteer Tim MaCartney-Snape’s Sea to Summit expedition to climb Mt. Everest solo from the sea level up. Tim started the walk from Ganga Sagar in the Bay of Bengal near Kolkata, India and took three months to reach the summit of Everest. A few months later Roland was successful in his own audacious Ski-Mountaineering expedition to make the first-ever winter traverse across the Himalayan range through Ladakh, Kishtwar and Kashmir with four fellow adventurers including Paramjeet Singh from India.
Soon after these epic journeys, Sea to Summit was born, an outdoor gear company that made functional, durable, yet affordable products and reflected the ethos of their purist adventures in a ground-up approach to design and detail. Sea to Summit has since developed an impressive range of innovative gear from extreme adventures to backpacking and travelling, from sleeping bags to tents, dinnerware to dry sacks, dry bags to wilderness hygiene, and much more.
Headquartered in Perth Australia, the award-winning brand has expanded globally to more than 60 countries. Their ethos is to “equip and inspire”—and Sea to Summit’s design team along with their sponsored athletes continually drive product innovation and evolution to deliver lighter, better products for outdoor enthusiasts, athletes, and active travellers around the world.
Sea to Summit India’s offerings include the most important, core technical products for any serious outdoors enthusiast—as well as for anyone who likes to travel light with gear that can take a beating. Products launching in India include sleep systems (sleeping bags, sleeping mats, sleep liners, pillows), dry storage (dry compression sacks, dry sacks, waterproof cases, daypacks), camp kitchen (containers, cookware, dinnerware, utensils, water storage, stoves, kitchen accessories), tents and shelters (tarps, accessories), gaiters, hammocks, toiletries, bottles, umbrellas, and a whole lot of exciting accessories that enhance any sort of travel—from soft adventure travel to long, arduous expeditions of any kind.
Sea to Summit’s sleep systems with its wide range of award-winning sleeping bags, sleeping mats, pillows, and sleeping bag liners, can be permutated into a vast number of combinations to suit personal preferences and outdoor conditions. They also come in women-specific designs to suit the feminine ergonomics and warmth requirements.
Warmth without weight—Sea to Summit changed the game in Ultra Lightweight Down sleeping bags with their Spark range. The Spark SpIV 2019 is designed to keep you as warm as possible while minimising weight and size. The Spark™ Series from SP0 to SPIV spans everything from an ultralight liner to an expedition weight mid-winter bag. While the end usage is very different, they reflect a design ethos of matching weather conditions to the lightest bag possible. The RDS 850+ Loft premium goose down, light-gauge #3 YKK zip and high-performance 10D Nylon shell and 7D lining fabrics, set the stage for superior performance. Buy it here. The Flame series is a variation of the Spark Series, specially designed and shaped for women. The Flame series also has appropriately placed extra insulation for more warmth. Buy it here.
The Comfort Plus Insulated Mat AS is a game-changer when it comes to comfort out in the wild. This mat includes an Airstream Pump that is integrated into the stuff sack for quick and easy inflation. The Air Sprung Cells conform to your body shape, providing a more even dispersion of pressure across the mattress for a more comfortable nights sleep. Dual-Layer construction uses two independent high-resolution layers, giving greater sensitivity by distributing your body weight and shape over more cells. The two layers are offset for more uniform insulation and cushioning. Buy it here.
Sea to Summit has a long, proven legacy when it comes to dry storage systems. The Ultra Sil Dry Sack is ideal for backpackers. It incorporates Ultra-Sil 30D siliconised high-tenacity Cordura nylon fabric for exceptional strength, has a Non-wicking Hypalon roll-top closure with stiffener at the top for an improved seal, and is Fully seam-sealed for water resistance. Buy it here.
Rapid 26L Drypack
High-performance waterproof daypacks for all your outdoor adventures. Made of TPU laminated 420D Nylon with fully seam-sealed construction and sleek, clean lines, these rugged waterproof daypacks are highly capable all-rounders. They are just at home on the river, trail, crag, overhead locker and alpine face.
The top-loading main chamber has a waterproof roll-top closure with side straps to maintain a streamlined, minimal design. The ventilated quick-dry shoulder straps, ergonomic back panel and removable waist strap provide comfort even with heavy loads. The inside is white for better visibility of contents and has a zippered stretch pocket that keeps smaller items from disappearing to the bottom of the pack. The 26 Litre Rapid has stretch mesh side pockets, a Hypalon® light mount/lash loop and a large exterior zippered pocket. Buy it here.
Looking for something smaller and super lightweight? Check out the Ultra-Sil Nano Daypack. Half the weight and pack size of the award-winning Ultra-Sil™ Daypack, it’s easily stashed in your pocket or on your keyring as the perfect travel companion. Ultralight 15D Nylon fabric, strategically positioned bar-tacks and streamlined panelling ensures maximum strength for minimal weight. The asymmetrical zipper and siliconised Nylon Nano™ fabric helps to reduce its packed size down to that of a chicken egg. With strength well beyond its 30g weight, our 18L Ultra-Sil™ Nano™ Daypack can carry heavy loads up to 20kg. Buy it here.
The Alphaset 1.1 provides a basic cook system for a party of one. The pot is made from lightweight, hard-anodised alloy which is strong, scratch-resistant and durable. The set includes a BPA-free and glass-reinforced polypropylene DeltaLight™ Bowl and Insul Mug, both of which nest inside a 1.2 litre hard anodised AlphaPot™. There are other variations of the Alphaset to accommodate larger groups. Couple this with some Alphalite cutlery and you’re good to go! Buy it here.
A collapsible, two-person cook system featuring an award-winning 2.8L X-Pot for camp stove cooking, two X-Bowls and two X-Mugs. Check out the rest of the X-Series line to customize your order.
