Episode 76: LoftTek Technology Challenges Outdoor Enthusiast to Pack Ultralight

On this episode we speak with President and CEO of Outdoor Vitals, Tayson Whittaker. Outdoor Vitals has developed a new synthetic technology – Loft Tek – allowing you to pack Ultralight. Tayson shares how Loft Tek is almost a comparable as Down, but at a much lower cost to YOU. Is synthetic now as good as DOWN and will the synthetic market soon change the game for everyone? We pose that question to Tayson – and he answers!

What we talk about

  • While in college  founder (Tayson) developed a passion for ultralight outdoor gear
  • Outdoor Vitals focuses on designing premium ultralight products
  • Donates 1% of all revenues to help those in need in developing countries
  • Synthetic is getting closer and closer to DOWN and is just as packable
