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 anything I need to keep warm and handy:

  • Water bottles 2x 1L
  • Camera
  • Food (Chocolate (Yum!) and Gels (Yuk!))
  • Sunburn cream
  • Spare batteries

Down filled one piece suit with Pertex® Endurance outer.
