Brooks-Range introduces more outerwear, hard goods, map tools and ultra lightweight camping gear for 2010/11.

Brooks-Range Mountaineering (ORSM Booth #8050) continues to expand its high quality collection of gear designed for the backcountry enthusiast. Every aspect of the Brooks-Range has grown including outerwear, ultra lite winter camping gear, map tools for Adventure Racing, sleeping bags and air mattresses. All Brooks-Range products are available through leading outdoor specialty retailers and online at

“Brooks-Range is about so much more than map tools and rescue sleds,” said Matt Brooks, founder and president of Brooks-Range Mountaineering Equipment. “We have our tried and true products that include the Backcountry Shovels, UltraLite sleds and tarps, etc., but this year, we have truly branched out to provide our customers with all the gear they will need for their backcountry adventures.”


UltraLite Quick Tent - An ultra-light water-resistant rip-stop nylon 2-person tent, specially designed for quick and easy set-up with a single ski or trekking pole. This two-person, stand-alone tent features a reinforced pole cap that holds the pole in place, with a second pole prop-point at the rear of the tent. There are 21 webbing tie outs, including one on top of the pole cup for overhead suspension. The front entrance flaps can be left open for ventilation or overlapped and staked closed for added protection from weather conditions. Dimensions: 5' x 9'; Packed size: 8” x 4”; Colors: red, yellow; Weight: 15.8 oz.; MSRP: $170.00

UltraLite Adventure Tarp - An indispensable all-in-one tool for the backcountry traveler in need of an emergency shelter, rescue sled/toboggan, emergency bivy bag and ground cloth. The UltraLite Adventure Tarp is small and light enough to carry all year long, even for day hikes, and versatile enough to be used in most emergencies, eliminating the need for a tarp or shelter in addition to a rescue-sled/toboggan. Dimensions: 8' x 10'; Packed size: 4” x 8”; Colors: red, yellow; Weight: 14 oz.; MSRP: $200.00


“Sleeping bags are an integral component to any backcountry adventure, so it is a natural product extension for Brooks-Range,” continued Brooks. “These bags far exceed what is currently on the market because they are extremely warm, but do not have the bulk and weight typically associated with a sleeping bag. I am confident that consumers will be impressed as soon as they slip into one of these down-filled bags.”

Alpini Sleeping Bag Collection - Made with straight wall baffles for maximum insulation efficiency, the Alpini Bags feature an ultralite, ripstop Pertex™ shell that is DWR- treated for water-resistance, and the highest quality 850 goose down fill.
