Delivery drone service, that caters for today’s consumer culture of immediacy and gives all outdoor enthusiasts the ability to have their Montane gear delivered directly to them wherever they are in the world, no matter the location, within mere minutes of placing their order.
The Montane brand is well-known for designing lightweight kit, and since incorporating drone compatible features into the design of their clothing and accessories Montane customers can now receive their orders in record time. Drone-compatible features include drone-friendly gear loops and internal stuff pockets, which fold into their own lids and pockets for quick delivery preparation. Since its inception in 1993, Montane has established itself as a pioneer of new technologies by harnessing cutting edge developments in clothing, accessories and backpack designs. With the launch of the drone to phone service, Montane is taking a big, innovative leap into the future.
Montane Marketing Manager Terry Stephenson says: : “We’ve been secretly testing this within the UK and are happy to announce that Further Faster Delivery will be fully operational within the UK by June 2017 and Europe by 2018. Enhanced batteries and obstacle avoidance technology means that we can guarantee deliveries even in rough weather or to remote locations. This is a hugely exciting step for Montane and one that will cement the brand as innovative through and through”.
Stephenson continues: “With our new drone compatible clothing, it is literally possible to pile a heap of kit onto our Further Faster Delivery drones and deliver parcels without concern for weight. We’re hoping our ground-breaking service will encourage those in the outdoors to add a bit of spontaneity to their outdoor adventures, knowing they are only a drone away from having any additional items they need delivered in an instant.”
The Montane Featherlite™ pack range demonstrates the drone-compatible design, which stuffs away into its own lids to enable quick delivery preparation and ultimately fast drone to phone service.
