Beware! Dishonest Company

Beware of this company. We went to the Arctic Circle and used this company at the recommendation of our guide. We had the equipment shipped to Norway since we were coming from the U.S. We received equipment that was different from what we paid for and from what was agreed upon in our invoice. The equipment did not have proper temperature ratings. Boots were the wrong size. Clothing was covered in dog hair. I had to buy gear and clothing in the Arctic. I have written back and forth with no resolution. Here are some responses from this vendor:
• About the wrong sleeping mats – “Both mats are different brands to the others but these are of the same 5 season specification…” (However, his website advertises these different mats as 4 season, at a different price than the invoice. Additionally, the temperature rating is different).
• About the wrong boot size – Initial response,“the boots label will say US9 but these are a UK7,” and in another email, “So we have that you asked for UK7… on our order form. Which if your looking at the
boots label will say US9 but these = a UK7.” After emailing a picture of the boot label I received (UK8) he replied,” Hello yes I have checked your emails and we went on your request for a US 9 see attached label for these boots.” And answered to another email saying, “ I remember double checking your order and
ignoring the 7UK? …As such I looked at the boots on the shelf and selected the US9 which is a UK8 according to the manufactures label. I have worked as a boot fitter in the past and can assure you I sent the best option based on your request.”
• Soiled clothing – “To be honest it would be impossible to run our business if we used some form of tape to continuously run over the clothing to remove it…However we do get some husky hair getting lodged in some of the fleeces as at this time of the year as most of our customer go on Northern Lights trips with dog sledging trips. This is generally thick white brittle (bit like brush bristles).”

Excellent last minute service

I left it until the last minute to get some items such as sleeping bags, down jackets and Thermarests etc and found the costs mounting up. Contacted them literally 3 days before I flew and they sent out some very impressive kit for a fraction of the retail cost, even our mountain leader was jealous of Rab sleeping bags and down jackets etc. You can pay via your own payment button on the website. They delivered the next day, and collected the kit from my work address when I returned. 5 star service highly recommended.

Full Kilimanjaro Kit List Hired for just £280

At the begining of March 2012 I climbed Kilimanjaro (and made it..JUST!!)
After not knowing what to take & speaking to Stuart I order the Full Kilimanjaro pack..
I found the quality of gear exceptional & a fellow climber (who had climbed Everest base camp) also commented on the range of gear being being of the highest quality too..I used every piece of equipment & found Stuart very helpful too..Would recommend anyone climbing to use this site...Even my fellow climbers who had paid fortunes to buy equipment wished they had known about this site and saved money
