When High-Tech Meets High Peaks: Humanitarian Expedition Puts Acteev on the Map

Explorers Choose Acteev to Conquer Nepal’s Toughest Terrain

In June, a group of explorers from a humanitarian nonprofit Across the Atlas made a remarkable journey into the unforgiving landscapes of Mustang, Nepal which is home to some of the harshest terrain in Asia. Their mission? To deliver vital medical aid and essential gear to isolated communities.

On average, the explorers spent 10 hours or 20-30 miles hiking per day, at times 15 thousand feet in the air, crossing glacial rivers and 17 thousand-foot passes with yaks and mules in tow. A crucial ally in this daring endeavor was Acteev, a trailblazer in textile technology. From scorching daytime heat to the frigid cold of night, Acteev’s high-performance gear served as a vital lifeline.

Acteev’s superior gear – including odor-resistant socks, SPF-blocking long sleeve shirts and breathable gaiters – rose to the challenges presented by Nepal’s harsh, dry terrain and extreme temperatures. The technology showcased its impressive versatility in the face of environmental extremes. 

Expedition member Pietro Simonetti couldn’t praise Acteev’s gear enough. “The shirts were amazing,” he recalled. “Each day the team had a choice of different brands and materials that were graciously donated, and more times than not, without discussing it, we chose Acteev.” 

His admiration didn’t end there. “It was a fantastic product that the team loved,” Simonetti continued. “Acteev was excellent at managing our perspiration, protecting us from sun with its long sleeves and UPF protection, all while fighting odor for the entire 10 days.”

Yet, Acteev’s contribution extended beyond the team’s wardrobe. The company made a significant impact on the local communities as well. Acteev donated gear to the residents of Mustang, sharing the benefits of their technology with those who live daily in the challenging conditions the expedition team braved for a few weeks.

In the harsh and beautiful wilderness of Mustang, Acteev proved itself an indispensable tool for the outdoors. The expedition demonstrated Acteev’s innovative technology not only makes life more comfortable in extreme environments but can also make a real difference in people’s lives. The journey may be over, but the legacy of Acteev’s impact continues.
