SF Expedition Black Cotton Ventile® fabric – a natural, water repellent, durable fabric used in pilot suits during WW2. Developed as a necessity at the time, this fabric increased the survival rate of RAF pilots facing the toughest, most dangerous conditions by up to 80%.
Now, the SF Expedition Parka incorporates Ventile® to protect from the freezing snows of the arctic. This fabric is long-lasting & completely weatherproof.
The Patriot Down Smock – developed for severe cold weather conditions. A rip-stop and durable water repellant Pertex® Quantum outer is injected with 850 Fill Power providing superior warmth to weight ratio without compromising on durability.
Further reinforcements to the shoulders are provided with a technical composite blend of Dyneema® and Cordura® for enhanced abrasion resistance.
They’ve been hauled up some of the highest mountains in the world, rappelled down vertical cliffs and thrown out of planes at 14,000ft. Featuring reinforced knee panels that utilise hexagonal woven Cordura® x Dyneema® fibres, this gives high tenacity resistance whilst maintaining elasticity for dynamic movements.
Bespoke trims have been meticulously selected and integrated into a highly flexible ergonomic cut, pockets have been designed for easy access whilst wearing a climbing harness. We’ve incorporated all of the mission-critical features you could need and eliminated any of the ones that could hold you back.
During the record breaking summit of K2 in Winter Nims & his team wore the SF Patriot Jacket during downtime and whilst prepping for the expedition. Tested down to -40° the SF Patriot Jacket is ideal for protecting you against the harsh winter elements.
