Our kind of summer!

Our home country experienced one of the wettest and hottest summers on record! Soaring temperatures and torrential downpours made for an unreliable season. Unsurprisingly, that’s our kind of summer and our customers, retailers and friends simply lapped it up. As a result, they’re getting their maps out in more places than ever this year!

Bavaria and Gelderland

Ilonne takes charge of fresh stock on August 1st at Bas Buiten .

We first said “Hallo” to our newest retailers in July. At the centre of their vibrant outdoor communities in Bavaria and Gelderland it was fabulous to witness them embrace our exclusive map designs on the latest recycled SplashTex fabric. This steaming summer saw one of them sell-out of stock within 3 weeks!

Bavaria SplashMaps are exclusively available from AlpenStrand and Basislager

In the heights

The simplicity of SplashMap bearing taking in the Alps with Mountain Energy

Culminating at the summit of the Matterhorn, the team loved the simple versatility of SplashMaps for taking bearings and staying on-track. They and others will report back to the RGS in November at the annual Explore event. Join us?
