About Force Ten

We craft true mountain performance by spending as much time on the last detail as the first, making gear that keeps working, ascent after ascent; stable mountain tents that weigh less than your water bottle, robust sleeping bags with a deep loft and lightweight rucksacks that are as tough as an off-width gritstone crack.

We’ve been innovating with outdoor gear for nearly 50 years. It started back in the 1960s when Force Ten introduced A-Frame expedition tents; tents with tough, lightweight technical fabrics and bell-shaped porch areas, the first of their kind. These tents let the pioneers of the day explore further, faster and embark on new, ground-breaking expeditions.

Force Ten Classic Tents continue to be made, a testament to the enduring popularity and functional design of these iconic tents.

Technical mountain gear has come a long way since the sixties, but the original ethos of quality and functionality remain integral to Force Ten. Every season we push boundaries further to meet the demands of today's climbers and mountaineers.

At our core is a passion to create gear that goes beyond accepted limits. At the end of the day, we make products that we are proud to put our mark on.
