We are proud to announce that the Niak has been honored with the Guides Choice Award from the American Alpine Institute (AAI). The Niak is our 6th tent to earn this designation, joining the Keron, Nallo, Unna, Anjan, and Saivo. The AAI Guides Choice Award is based on comparative evaluations by professional climbing guides who put equipment through rigorous field testing around the world during one or several climbing seasons.
Guide James Pierson says of the Niak, "I have the Niak, and I really love it. It's lighter than the Unna, just as roomy, and can stand up to all but the harshest of conditions. I had it on a Mt. Baker trip in June where we had 60 mph sustained winds, with probably 70-80 mph gusts and it survived."
