The Coast of Labrador

Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic are currently on a two-month mission. The purpose is to travel deep into the Torngat Mountains of Canada’s Labrador region to descend the mighty Nachvak River—after ascending the mainline artery of the George—through a rarely visited 10,000-square-kilometer national park to the iceberg-choked waters of the Labrador Sea amidst a landscape of remnant glaciers, polar bears, caribou herds, native Inuit hunting grounds, and the highest peaks in Eastern Canada.

Gear Report: The Katabatic Tent
Posted on July 18, 2014

When our guide team set out to build the world’s best expedition shelter they had an idea for a radical new design but no idea of how much effort—or how may years of testing and development—it would take to realize their goal. Nine prototypes, expeditions to six continents, field-testing in winds that reached 121 miles per hour and a high mark of testing at 25,938 feet on the South Col of Everest. But all the work, all the miles and all the testing resulted in an expedition shelter that earned universal respect and validation with both a Gear of the Year and an Editor’s Choice award. In this Gear Report clip, Peter Whittaker breaks down the blow-by-blow on what the guide team went through to built the Katabatic.

As we dive into the heart of our Annual Gear Event, we’ve decided to honor the guide-built process and our award-winning gear with stunning expedition galleries from three of the best pieces of gear we’ve ever built. Today is the Alchemist Pack, which picked up a coveted Outside Magazine Gear of the Year award in 2012. It’s an expandable alpine utility pack that our guides tested in the thin air of towering peaks such as Makalu and Everest, towering spires in the Cirque of the Unclimbables and on trips to remote locations such as Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Cook.
