High altitude expeditions and high resistance in extreme weather conditions.
High Lab line tent, the Pilier represents the perfect synthesis of Ferrino’s great experience in mountain expeditions. Renewed in detail and always suitable for the most extreme uses, it is the ideal travel companion for those l ooking for a reliable and durable product that can be adapted to the most complex and different natural environments.

With a geodesic shape, available from 2 or 3 places, the Pilier has been chosen by numerous mountaineers for high altitude expeditions where the weather conditions are always very strict. The main and innovative feature is the external poles system which allows a very rapid assembly.
