Why we made it
- Full box baffle construction for extremely cold conditions.
- Ultralight 3-layer shell fabric is waterproof, windproof and very durable.
- Sophisticated 8000-meter parka with impressive warmth-to-weight-ratio.
The Guide Expedition Down Parka is the final result of extensive technical development, superior craftmanship, collaborations with down experts in the USA and fabric developers in Japan, meticulous lab testing, and gruelling real-world experiences. A sophisticated expedition parka that will withstand extensive periods of extreme temperatures on the world’s highest peaks and in desolate arctic regions. It is the most technically complex garment we have ever designed.

Wash & Care

After wash, tumble dry the jacket on low temperature until the jacket is dry. Make sure to close all pockets and the front zipper. Place a couple of tennis balls in the dryer – this will make the down distributed evenly within the jacket.
