ISM have teamed up with Tierra outdoor clothing
After a very positive meeting with Ralph White, MD of Rosker Ltd who will distribute Tierra here in the UK…………….. I’m very excited that Tierra is now the ‘Official clothing sponsor of ISM’
Tierra, Sweden’s ‘best kept secret!’ has produced high end, functional outdoor clothing for climbers & skiers for almost 30yrs.
Never before has Tierra moved away from its Scandinavian roots, but they’ve now chosen the UK as a market place they’d like to develop & they’ve chosen ISM to partner them in that development.
I’ve already had my hands on & have been wearing the Tierra Roc Blanc, 3 layer Gore-Tex Pro jacket & pants, icefall climbing this winter…………
The jacket’s been great - really well cut & very neat fitting with no excess, but still allowing you to swing your axe without the jacket lifting or the sleeves pulling back. The trim fit also means you get a clear view looking down to access gear loops on your harness, which makes accessing ice screws on a steep pitch, quick & easy.
Great functionality as well……..with good length sleeves & velcro wrist fasteners that work! a hood which takes a helmet without too much excess, under arm ‘pit zips’ which sit just forward from where they traditionally do, which means they can be opened & closed with one hand which is great, 2 large size front stowage pockets…………..& it looks great!
The bib pants are also trim fitting, a good length, seem durable & have loads of movement.
I’m looking forward to receiving some more kit – it’ll be Christmas all over again!
