New stretch target

Wow! Thank you everyone. We're amazed to be at this point and we're so proud that you can all be a part of this. We want to push further and go for £10,000. It's a big ask but we're here to make a difference. The extra money will go towards expanding our equipment in the factory as well as working with our mill to manufacture alternative types of polyester out of discarded plastic bottles. We want to use our success story as proof that businesses can put morals before greed.

The Summiteer Haven 200 is all about maximum space and minimum weight.

Using a 20d silnylon flysheet and super lightweight components, the Summiteer Haven offers a solution. Designed for the alpinist duo waiting out bad weather before a big ascent, or the Lakeland hill walker wanting something a bit more pleasant to stay in whilst bagging peaks. The Summiteer Haven is set to be a benchmark in the lightweight 2 man tent market and due to it's versatility suits a range of users in a range of applications.
