Lightwave was founded in 2002 by Carol McDermott a native of New Zealand but a resident of Britain and France. Carol is well known for climbing mountains across the world with ascents including Shivling, Gasherbrum II, Ama Dablam (solo) and Mount Cook (a dozen times) as well as some epic, unsupported treks in the Karakorum.
The Lightwave ethos is for its products to be functional, durable and high quality gear with the best design to suit real outdoor enthusiasts like you and me. The designs of Lightwave products are created around function and not fashion, so you won't find lots of clutter like those in feature-driven products but you will find amazing functionality. Lightwave is a brand for those who want functionality and not a fashion statement.
