DOWN SUIT

I look like the Michelin Man in this but it is my favourite colour! And it's going to keep me nice and warm on the upper reaches of Everest. Down lower I won't need it, but on those last couple of days I'll be climbing and sleeping in it.

It's kind of like a cricket umpire's coat. I can fit so much inside, as there are pockets for everything I need to keep warm and handy:

Mine weighs a little less, as they had to cut out a panel in the legs and move the knees up to fit me!
