Mountain Equipment

Since 2010, Mountain Equipment has supplied the Pied A Terre Adventures team with technical outdoor clothing and equipment. Their gear has ensured our leaders stay comfortable and protected while guiding clients through the elements.

Mountain Equipment began in 1961, participating in countless ascents of the world’s highest peaks and has since supported climbers establishing ever more adventurous routes with the best gear, and equipped world record setting trips to the North and South Poles.

Our partnership with Mountain Equipment aligns our core values of vision, expertise, and attention to detail and enables us to offer expert advice on clothing and equipment for your adventure.


Deuter has provided the Pied A Terre Adventure Leaders team with their backpacks (Futura 28, Futura 26SL, Guide and Guide SL) since 2019. With a legacy dating back to 1898, Deuter has established itself as a symbol of excellence, practicality, and endurance and are known as pioneers and European market leaders in the field of functional backpacks.

Our guides look for certain qualities in their backpacks such as durability, how easy they are to pack and access kit, and importantly, comfort. Deuter backpacks accompany our leaders on all adventures from lowland day walks, technical scrambles, winter mountaineering to multi-day hut-to-hut alpine treks.

At the core of Deuter’s values, lies a commitment to sustainability, fair pay, safety, respect, and loyalty. These values, along with their dedication to innovation and love for backpacking, shines through in the exceptional products they produce. If you’re interested in finding a backpack to suit you, you can ask your leader for recommendations.
