Cassin was established as an innovative climbing company in 1952 by Riccardo Cassin. In 1997 Cassin was purchased by CAMP. CAMP is an authentic mountain brand that manufactures authentic mountain products. The name C.A.M.P. is an Italian acronym that stands for: Concezione Articoli Montagna Premana – Conception of Articles for Mountaineering Made in Premana. In short, CAMP stands for history, innovation, quality and absolute dedication to the mountain lifestyle. Founded in 1889 and today run by six brothers and cousins, the family-owned company continues to work for those who challenge themselves and seek to be part of the natural world. Today Riccardo Cassin’s memory is honored by stamping his name on some of the most technical products in the CAMP line.
