New Big Canopy Campout Karabiner

Last Updated:  28/08/2018
New Karabiner Campout 2018

Introducing our unique and limited edition Big Canopy Campout Karabiner. TBCC have commissioned 1000 karabiners to represent the number of people we aim to have camping out in forests on the 15th of September.

Manufactured by DMM the triple-lock PerfectO has been designed with a colour scheme to represent the different hues of the rainforest from the darker understory to the lighter canopy.

£5 from each karabiner sale goes directly to World Land Trust to protect endangered forests worldwide.

For our 2018 event all funds raised for World Land Trust will be donated to The Sierra Gorda Reserve in Mexico; the most diverse habitat in the country and home to jaguars, pumas, margay, bears, otters, macaws and parrots. For more information on the reserve see the link below:

Donating £100 protects 1 Acre of forest in the reserve.
Thats 20 Karabiners!!

Join the Event

Whether you are an arborist, professional tree climber, canopy researcher, forest adventurer or camping enthusiast we invite you to join up and share your dawn and dusk experience in the forest.

Register for free at our website:

Registering your campout allows us to follow the events around the globe and gives you a chance to win prizes donated by our main sponsors. Keep an eye on our website and social media pages for updates.

How to take part:

Find a suitable (with permission!) forest or area with trees then campout on the night of the 15th of September and share your experience over our social media pages. We want to showcase all the different forests around the world and the people who appreciate them.

Please note: You must be a certified and experienced climber to sleep in the canopy, but we encourage everyone to take part and campout on ground level.
