The article focuses on the visit of Chris Bonnington, leader of the proposed August 1975 assault on Mount Everest, in the facility of B. M. Coatings Ltd in Lancashire, England. His objective is to inspect tents and rucksacks of proofed fabrics produced by Karrimor in Accrington. In view of the Mount Everest expedition, he regarded tentage as its most critical equipment thus tents must be produced with strongness and warmness. The company's managing director noted that these tents tended to tore a polyurethane-coated nylon on a malleable laboratory machine.
