Why Buy From Us
“The highest quality titanium products at affordable prices, for everyone”
When it comes to the great outdoors there are a multitude of phenomenal brands and products out there that intuitively make your time in nature much more enjoyable. From weekend camping trips, day multi pitches or just a local hike.
Our time outdoors now has become so specialised to such individual pursuits that there are products so specific to that sport or type of adventure, we can all be gear junkies! When I look at my own gear hoard for just slacklining or rock climbing, I think wow there is some serious money here, but more importantly there is a sort of pride in my gear! I look after it meticulously as I know that when tied onto the end of the rope my life is dependent on this gear, in addition I buy higher quality for the belief that it shall last longer. It is also an inherited belief from my Grandfather that I always buy the best quality with the money I have, even when I was young I’d save a little longer for that something better. As I am now older it is this core principle which has enabled me to have some pieces in my gear bag that are plus 7-8 years old, and its this company mindset that I look for when I buy things for myself.
“Every item has a story or a particular saving grace when it became invaluable and that is the fundamental principle of everything we create.”
One of the things I enjoy about outdoor pursuits is that the gear can be multidisciplinary, for example I buy a great MSR stove and it can be used camping, the local crag or equally the big bicycle tour you have planned. Once you have that piece of gear you are set!
With camping gear you speak to the people that are out in the 4 elements all year round and they are super proud of every bit of their kit. Every item has a story or a particular saving grace when it became invaluable and that is the fundamental principle of everything we create. I remember watching a video of Alex Honnold in Getu, China and he was there to do the second ascent of the line Corazon de Ensueno originally sent by Dani Andrada, anyway this route is super beautiful and aesthetic to hell, (9a Tufa heaven). In the prelude of the video Alex is talking about using the same water bottle, just a plastic reusable one and then goes on about his shorts looking tatty. I'll paraphrase his words, “These shorts are epic, they’ve seen maybe 1000 pitches”! Now I just think to that one moment or even for example Patagonia Worn Wear, their campaigns, it's all about having this item of gear for a longtime and accumulating stories with it. You don’t necessarily need a replacement, if its high quality and well made it can be repaired, resewn etc.
So whether you are a world traveller and can say this t-shirt’s been around the world, to the water bottle or rucksack, it doesn’t matter its the places its been and the uses its had that count!
“With camping gear you speak to the people that are out in the 4 elements all year round and they are super proud of every bit of their kit.”
At SilverAnt Outdoors we are super proud to create gear that will last a lifetime! All our gear is made from 100% pure titanium, the metal of the Titans. And this use of titanium in everything we produce really does mean that each piece of gear you buy from us will really accumulate a lot of stories. And to add extra, all our products are guaranteed with our lifetime warranty.
Another major factor for ourselves as a brand is the price at which we set our products. Titanium as a raw material is an expensive commodity used in aerospace to medicine, it is perhaps the best material for outdoor products as its strong and ultralight. Now these properties dictate a premium price, but if we want to move away from the fast fashion economy then premium quality products have to be more affordable so as to be a viable alternative to our current buying habits. Thats why at SilverAnt Outdoors we have set all our prices at an affordable rate to ensure that it is not a luxury to buy a premium made titanium product but accessible for everyone. The other day actually I was super happy because I saw a competing brand stainless steel bottle selling for more than our 600ml Titanium bottle, I thought to myself its a no brainer to opt for the superior quality titanium option. I suppose this attitude is somewhat the antithesis of say Bernard Arnault, the owner of LMVH who famously said, “Luxury goods are the only area in which it is possible to make luxury margins.”
“And to add extra, all our products are guaranteed with our lifetime warranty.”
They say never make a business out of something you love but actually I think its a perfect thing to do. All the team at SilverAnt Outdoors are adventurers across a multitude of disciplines and slowly we are egging each other on to try new stuff and push our limits a little farther. We use the gear we make on the weekends, or equally just look at our desks with the water bottles and cups. What can we say, but we are definite fans of what we produce!
Penultimately, as a company we deeply care about our customers and there experience with our products, from the moment you click buy, to shipping and then afterwards during continual use. We love your pictures, videos and all that you capture for us on your adventures, but equally we love your feedback and reviews, both negative and positive. Your feedback allows us to improve and grow, so if you do have a problem send us a message and we will get back to you shortly to resolve any issues you might be having. We truly centre our customer service around you the customer and always will!
Finally for the small community that have followed and supported us thus far we are super grateful for your support and warmth towards us as a small outdoor company. Have fun out there and stay safe!
