  • factor that underpins our can do philosophy Let s put in a word for realism here PHD s products are the best just like everyone else s It s impossible isn t it and embarrassing who can shout the loudest Let us take a less lofty position and say the products keep moving on a process we hope will continue The more you learn about gear the more you realise that perfection is a distant and not over useful objective the attainment of it precluded by the complex and conflicting demands of our mountain activities Intelligent adaptation is probably a better description of what we strive for And though we are making the best dedicated solutions to mountain weather that we know the most we can hope for is not state of the art just state of the day These were Peter Hutchinson s original words about PHD and they are as true now as they were then The essence of the business has not changed and after 52 years designing and making expedition software Peter Hutchinson is still very much involved PHD today We are still small still specialising in extreme warmth and extreme lightness still designing and making everything in Stalybridge UK still insistent on verifying our own quality standards The original team is still working at what we do best and as keen as ever to develop new ideas The main difference is that Peter Elliott joined us four years ago and has taken over the daily demands of the business as Managing Director Peter has been a climber for over 30 years and is currently a member of his local Mountain Rescue Team He loves PHD the people the ethos the gear we make and the people we make it for He participates fully in new gear developments and keeps pushing for more personal testing in the mountains Peter Elliott came in at an interesting time PHD is as unusual as ever unique is the buzz word We remain a totally UK operation we only deal directly with our customers and we do not advertise We are however heading further into new territory with our Design Your Own Clothing website following up on the ground breaking Design Your Own Sleeping Bag site we launched some years ago Customers can now create their own individual piece of gear and get a good fit into the bargain Tall thin and short wide people take note Only a hands on company can offer you this flexibility couple that to the world class materials used and it comes down to just one name PHD The way we operate is difficult make no mistake We use computers but the first samples are designed and made by hand the computer work follows We get the performance figures for our main materials from our suppliers down fabrics zips etc then we test them again Why Because there is no supply chain for PHD products no buffers we stand directly behind everything we make

  • hands on experience which can also be measured in decades We now use CAD to help with our pattern work but design still starts with brain and hand Nothing matches human knowledge and skill a combination of assets which are not easily acquired or shared The way we sell our products also keeps us small Direct to the customer only because we don t want intermediaries No advertising not because we re shy but we want customers to buy gear they really want without persuasion recommendation is fine And of course as another natural limit to expansion some of our resources are rare in particular our 1000 down So if we don t measure our history by growth what do we mark it by A list of expeditions You ll find plenty mentioned throughout the website It s been a pleasure to be involved with these remarkable ventures the smallest as much as the big ones and we learned a lot from them But making lists is an accountant s job Rosie Swale Pope s Run Around the World Sir Ran Fiennes Coldest Journey Innovations The revolutionary Minimus sleeping bags and clothing we launched back in 1998 gave new meaning to the word lightweight and sparked off the vast range of lightweight down gear now sold worldwide under a hundred brands The Delta and Zeta belay jackets brought new standards to this specialist area The Hispar gear extended the idea of lightweight into the coldest conditions on earth Our Design Your Own sites for sleeping bags and down jackets have introduced a unique customer service into the outdoor world We could go on but why waste time looking backwards when we re busy developing new gear ideas all the time Adele Pennington PHD Hispar Suit Ian Parnell PHD Delta Belay

  • about technical details with Andy Parkin or Andy Cave carrying on valuable connection that has always kept his designs state of the art and practical I was always interested in making gear that worked and was lucky to find climbers with a analytical approach to gear Pete is full of praise for Don Whillans as a gear designer a bright bloke they designed the first down suit together along with expedition wind suits and other pieces of equipment that would become bench mark gear for high altitude Pete wasn t confined to down equipment at this time leading to one of his favourite story s With his apprentice a young Demy Moorhouse who would later take the skills he learned with Pete and set up Clog and then DMM Pete began making the first Cromolly pegs in Europe His manufacturing efforts soon aroused interest in quite a few quarters including with the legendary American Yvon Chouinard who was starting out building what would be the most successful climbing company in the world Some companies won t do a special unless you talking a hundred units that s not in my game plan Chouinard heard about this guy making Cromolly pegs in the UK and flew over scared that I was a competitor When he turned up at this ram shackled farm with two dirty guys heating up pegs in the fireplace and drying down in the oven I think he realised he didn t have much to worry about Some time before this a new company in California gave Pete a ring and asked if he wanted to go work for them making down equipment I was really excited the Nose and Salathe had just been climbed it was the golden age of climbing But it was not to be Financial problems meant they pulled out at the last minute and Pete stayed in his shack I still wonder what would have happened if I d have gone muses Pete The company s name was The North Face But business was on the up and Pete started employing people to help him fulfil orders The shops started asking to sell the gear commercially so I found a proper factory employed more people and formed Mountain Equipment Looking back on it it was a questionable move Growth was a whopping 60 a year but as the company grew rapidly Pete found it harder and harder to keep in touch The expedition and bespoke gear slipped away slowly and I found myself with ninety employees many of whose names I didn t even know Like many of the grass roots manufactures such as Rab and Buffalo Pete felt that this wasn t what he really wanted He d started because he wanted to have a life based around climbing but increasingly he was turning into a business man Instead of listening to climbers I had designers telling me about next year s colours and he laughs when his attributes some of his
