For any expedition, it is crucial to select the correct clothing depending on your specific needs and expedition criteria. Our range of high-quality technical clothing is designed to give you options to design your perfect mountaineering clothing layers.
When planning for your first summit your gear needs to be light and durable. Our ultra-light mountaineering clothing is designed to save you weight, whilst also being durable, protecting you from anything that you may encounter. This reduces the risk that can arise from carrying heavier gear at high altitudes. The grams you save at ground level add up to kilograms at 8,000m+ up.
For snow or rainfall your best option for staying dry while mountaineering is by investing in waterproof outer-layers. It is important to consider body ventilation and the breathability of different materials. Our full range of waterproof mountaineering jackets are designed to keep moisture out, whilst, providing your body with the correct amount of breathability. This allows your body to self-regulate keeping you at the perfect temperature during intense activity.
If you are heading into any alpine region the risks of snowstorms, avalanches and low visibility is increased. It is recommended to consider this factor and purchase brightly coloured outer-layer clothing. This will aid in staying with the group during low visibility conditions and allow rescuers to see you clearly in an emergency.
