Success is... ? Own-label Nalgene :-)
One of our Lake District favourites - The Climbers Shop in Ambleside - posted this great little story after we supplied them with a batch of cool branded Tritan bottles last week.
'Back in the day when we were aspiring to own our own shop, we dropped into the US town of Jackson Hole after climbing Grand Teton, and bought ourselves a little memento from a great independent gear shop called Teton Mountaineering. 20 years later we're very proud to offer the UK equivalent.'
First Ascent is happy to have played a small part - via Nalgene's printed-bottle scheme - in helping The Climbers Shop complete this 20-year circle...
And we're even more pleased to see that the 20-year-old Teton Tritan in the photo is still going strong!
