Note - we are currently not manufacturing the ALPINIST Case.


Our patented Alpinist® Case is the first camera case specifically designed for rock climbing, alpine climbing, and other demanding outdoor pursuits. Born out of the necessity to carry an ultra-compact camera into the vertical alpine terrain, our patented Alpinist® Case design makes minimal compromises in protecting your point & shoot camera from all the elements found in epic pitches, long ski tours or distant travels.

Outside® Magazine's Review of our Alpinist® Case R5

"The case is so sharp-looking that you'll want it for less extreme pursuits, too - traveling, hiking, or just jamming into your carry-on for the weekend." - Outside Magazine, October 2009

"Drop the camera, freeze it, soak it - we climbers nuke our photo equipment. At last, a compact-camera case made for the vertical..." - Climbing Magazine, Issue No.277 August 2009

The Alpinist® Case was imagined, designed, prototyped, and refined by climbers for climbers and outdoor enthusiast alike. Machined from aircraft grade 6061 T6 and 5052 aluminum alloys, the Alpinist® Case is lightweight, very compact, and extremely durable. Most importantly, the Alpinist® Case is designed to be carried on the harness or an external back-pack strap and be accessible with a single free hand - thus always within reach during vertical climbing, steep skiing, or endless travel.

The days of dropping a glove from trying to access your camera or having to unzip your jacket at a hanging belay are gone. No more broken cameras, no more missed shots.
