We’ve landed high-tech ski touring essentials to give away from Petzl, the masters of weight loss.
Want to shave the grams from your pack, as demonstrated by FL’s backcountry editor Martin Chester (see March’s Fall-Line p58-59)? Look no further than these superbly designed pieces of lightweight ski touring and mountaineering equipment.
The genius team at Petzl is offering one lucky Fall-Line reader their METEOR ski touring helmet, FLY harness and BINDI headlamp – and if you want to know how much weight that’ll save you over your clunky old-school kit, just grab a pair of scales and a calculator like Martin did.
The METEOR helmet, worth £78 and designed for ski touring, mountaineering and climbing, weighs a scanty 240g. Low profile, with great ventilation, optimal integration points for goggles and reinforced protection to the top and circumference of the head, it’s the first CE-certified ski touring helmet.
The FLY harness, worth £96 and designed for mountaineers and ski tourers, is Petzl’s most lightweight harness and can be donned with both feet on the ground. Ultra-lightweight and compact, thanks to innovative construction without a buckle and with comfort options, it weighs only 130g. The multiple gear loops and the ice-screw retainers can transport all the equipment required on technical outings.
Weighing barely 35g and described in a recent article by Martin as a game-changer, the BINDI headlamp, worth £48, is ultra-compact and minimalist. With 200 lumens, it’s not only ideal for lighting your way on pre-dawn starts and finding the hut loo at night, but works for everyday use at home too. The battery charges via micro USB port and the headband features a high-viz reflective thread.
