Terra has partnered with Swiss and American International Mountain Leader, UIMLA, Ussher ‘Cherries’ von Maur to design a pack to equip the day hiker.
As Cherries says, “Having worked with outdoor sports equipment for over 10 years and guided clients for almost as many, I take lots of pleasure in trying out new things. The real enjoyment comes when outings are a success thanks to everyone having the right gear. I am an avid believer that people have more fun and will go out more if they are properly equipped – often convincing my clients of this is my main mission during a walk (or snowshoe tour)!”
As a highly trained International Mountain Leader, Cherries’ focus is on your comfort, enjoyment, education and safety, all of which are equally important, whether over steep ground, on fixed equipment (ladders, chains, etc), over snow patches... or while having coffee on a summit. To that end her lightweight pack includes a microfilter for water purification, a first aid kit, a travel towel, a Biolite stove with the option for a kettle attachment, and a solar lamp that collapses to just one inch.
