I may say that this is the greatest factor: the way in which the expedition is equipped, the way in which every difficulty is foreseen, and precautions taken for meeting or avoiding it. Victory awaits him who has everything in order, luck, people call it.
Roald Amundsen

During the months of December, January and February the days are short and the nights are long. North of the Arctic Circle the sunlight only brushes the highest peaks the mountainous fjords and habitants suffer in the dark valleys below.


Viking wintertime is often summed up as “that winter he stayed at home at the farm”. It was a time to stay indoors and rest up. The weather can be extremely cold, and temperatures drop to minus 40 degrees Celsius in some places.

The extreme cold this country endures, coupled with vast outdoor architecture inspires us explore these locations to bring new ideas and inspiration to our cold weather clothing. Combined, we have spent countless nights under the skies of Norway.



MISSIONThruDark cofounders will locate to Norway to conduct the latest product 'fit for purpose' trials, in order to develop and test the RECOIL, RAID and CHARGE in a challenging and unforgiving environment.

EXECUTIONBy day by night, by sea by air. ThruDark cofounders are meticulous in their desire and drive to personally test all of the products currently available. Norway provides both the climatic and arduous terrain challenges expected to push this clothing to it's limits. Harsh cold winds, coupled with rain and extremely wide temperature ranges facilitated the 'fit for purpose' trials for maximum exposure and feedback.

SUMMARYAs expected, our unrelenting pursuit of excellence drives us on to critique the smallest of details for improvement. The trials cemented our belief and trust in both our material and manufacturing process. All three products performed above and beyond. ThruDark will not release any products that fall below our exacting standard. Clothing is designed, developed, sampled AND tested by US, giving you the level of assurance and confidence to confidently approach all challenges you may face.

The difficult is what takes a little time. The impossible is what takes a little longer.
