Liberty Mountain, a leading independent distributor of technical outdoor products and climbing brands in the U.S., is pleased to announce its partnership with Valandré. Starting immediately, Liberty Mountain will offer Valandré's line of high end technical down products.

The French company is a high-end manufacturer of down sleeping bags and outerwear for mountaineers and alpinists, such as the Austrian female climber, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, who has just become the first woman to successfully climb all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without the use of bottled oxygen.

“Climbing to these heights without supplementary oxygen requires down gear that offers extreme warmth and better insulation due to reduced blood circulation. We are proud that Gerlinde has summitted K2 (North pillar - Japanese route), the second highest mountain in the world and her 14th 8,000er without supplemental oxygen, wearing our Valandré Combi,” said Niels Friisbol – President, Valandré.

Since its origin in Caissargues (Nimes), Valandré, a two-time Outdoor Industry Gold Award winner, has been the only specialist in the world willing to elevate down gear production to a technologically influenced art form. Producing down products, containing as many as 91 individually cut pieces, that deliver the ultimate fit – more insulation around the torso and foot box, and full insulation around the head and forehead. In short, nothing performs as well in terms of weight and packability as a Valandré product.

Valandré is pleased to announce their new partnership in the American market. “Gary Heward and his team in Salt Lake City are professionals, so I have no hesitation to let them handle our future in the USA. Adding Valandre down equipment to their product mix, is an interesting move, as they incorporate the high altitude dimension into Liberty Mountain, and this point will rapidly become key to Gary and his team.” Niels Friisbol – President, Valandré

According to Gary Heward, Liberty's President, "Valandré is renowned by world class alpinists everywhere for making sleeping bags and outerwear that can withstand the harshest environments on the planet. The workmanship, quality and performance of Valandré products are unparalleled. It is a great addition to Liberty Mountain's offering to mountaineers and climbers."
