Perfection through minimalism was a design philosophy embraced by our Guide Team from day one. Starting from that alpinist mantra we shaved weight, bulk and overkill to create a line that is equipped with every essential but not one ounce of excess.
At every stage of product development, we integrate elements the guides demand, from the specifics of function, fabric and features to the precise location of every seam and stitch. For them, gear is a matter of life or death, so when design finally rates worthy of the First Ascent brand you know it has passed their ultimate test.
Three years in the making, the award-winning First Ascent Katabatic Tent demonstrates our commitment to getting it right. Watch how the Katabatic evolves from initial prototype to finished product—the ultimate expedition tent.
Our dream team has expanded, but the original six are still the driving force behind the objective of building the most technically innovative line of mountaineering gear in decades. Without their extensive alpine knowledge, First Ascent would simply not exist.
