Description

The Expedition 8000 is our warmest suit, built for the most extreme conditions, whether you're summiting an 8,000m peak or crossing the polar ice caps. Filled with RDS certified, 850FP goose down and built with robust and weather resistant Pertex® Quantum Pro outer fabric, this suit has been developed to retain heat in the world’s coldest environments.

A downproof Pertex® Quantum lining and boxwall baffle construction with differential cut maximise loft to improve heat retention. The down extends into a helmet compatible hood, which has a wired peak and adjustable fit to keep the heat in and the weather out.

Providing refuge in harsh conditions, the suit has space to accommodate bulky layers and has been optimised for articulation, enabling freedom of movement on challenging terrain. It has a five zipped side vent extending from the ankle all the way to the wrist which allows for superior air flow control, ideal for when the sun comes up. Featuring an extended length two-way front zip (ideal for relief), multiple pockets, internal adjustable support braces and mitt compatible oversized features, this suit has been refined to cope with the demands of expeditions.

Pertex® Quantum Pro Fabric

Pertex® Quantum Pro uses an ultra-thin water-resistant coating to provide increased protection in rough conditions. By combining a tightly woven face fabric with a microporous coating, Pertex® Quantum Pro delivers weather resistance whilst remaining lightweight, soft, and breathable. It’s ideal for use in cold or damp environments.
