TOP QUALITY TENT POLES AND TREKKING ACCESSOIRIES SINCE 1947
In 1947, the technician Adriaan Mostert was as a passionate camper continuously confronted with tent poles of insufficient quality.
The tent poles available in the market were not only inadequately strong, but also too heavy and too bulky. For this reason he started developing a tent pole himself wich was to comply with the high standards of the modern outdoor sportsman. After sustained and thorough research, during which various materials had to undergo intensive tests, the Original MOSTERT tent pole emerged. Thanks to an aluminium alloy especially developed for this purpose, Adriaan Mostert succeeded in reducing the overall weight to a minimum and achieving the optimum strength. Furthermore he invented the ingenious "Nesting system". This system where all the parts fit into each other, reduced the volume up to 80%. During comparison tests the Original MOSTERT tent pole turned out to be the only tent poles capable of withstanding a storm of 12 Bft. In the wind-tunnel.
The product immediately turned out a great success. Major tent manufacturers all over the world decide to modify their specifications and supply Original MOSTERT tent poles as a standard from that point of time onwards.
In keeping with Original MOSTERT´s tradition of skill and care for the product, ALLDEK TREKKING now offers a wide range of high-quality tent poles an accessories:

In the early 1960s Boker USA was sold to the well-known scissors-manufacturer Wiss & Sons, who kept up the production of Böker knives to sell them with Solingen products. Böker scissors disappeared from the market, being a competitor to Wiss. In the early 1970s Wiss sold to the multinational Cooper Industries. For Böker this change proved benificial, generating a close business and personal relationship with Cooper, who restored the name of Böker to its former greatness. During the eight years this active relationship lasted, Solingen was able to rationalise production and develop new modern products. Today Böker offers the broadest range of sports and collector´s knives with an anmatched variety of blade and handle materials.
In 1982, Hartmut Ortlieb founded today’s ORTLIEB Sportartikel GmbH in Nürnberg. In 1997 the firm relocated to the franconian town of Heilsbronn, not far from Nuremberg. In 2007, ORTLIEB has celebrated its 25th anniversary.
The first products were made in pure personal need for waterproof equipment – it wasn’t available at the time!
ORTLIEB’s first products were created in a backyard garage in preparation of his first long bicycle and climbing tours: they were hand-made on his mother’s sewing machine: dry bags and bicycle panniers made of truck tarps. What started very simple has developed into a leading high tech enterprise with 100 employees.
ORTLIEB’s collection has grown to include over 300 individual products. Even today, everything is located under one roof: from development to engineering, production, sales and marketing, and shipment.
ORTLIEB products are characterized by tightly sealed closure systems: for example roll closures, waterproof zippers, velcro, or sliding seal closures. Many of the design features are patented and serve as the benchmark in the bike and outdoor market.
