Who would guess that a climbing brand would have a history spanning over 120 years? C.A.M.P., which for all you acronym nuts out there stands for Conception of Articles for Mountaineering Made in Premana, was formed in 1889 by a blacksmith in the small Italian mountain town of Premana. This company started focusing on mountaineering tools during the first World War, when the Italian Army Alpine Troops were in need of equipment to help them navigate across icy terrain.
After World War II, C.A.M.P. began expanding its climbing gear with the help of prolific mountaineer Riccardo Cassin. Today this brand produces crampons, quickdraws, helmets and more to help people who love risk and the spirit of adventure explore the outdoors.
While C.A.M.P. is founded in ice climbing gear, this brand offers products for sport and trad climbers as well. Take a look at some of our favorite products from C.A.M.P.:
C.A.M.P. Orbit Express KS Quickdraws: Don't worry about shifting ropes during daunting climbs up steep faces. The C.A.M.P. Orbit Express KS quickdraw secures rope positions with Orbit carabiners and a retainer so you can focus on finding the next hold.
C.A.M.P. Shell Belay Device: C.A.M.P.'s Shell belay device is a simple and reliable belay and rappel device forged from 6082-T6 aluminum.
C.A.M.P. Jasper CR4 Harness: C.A.M.P.'s Jasper CR4 climbing harness has adjustable leg loops and features an innovative system that allows the waistbelt padding to slide along the structural webbing, making it easy to center the padding and tie-in point, independent of your waist size.
