Description

The Extreme Salopettes are a serious piece of mountain clothing. First choice amongst leading high Arctic expeditions, these salopettes are regularly used in super cold, hostile conditions. Utilising the same combination of fabrics as the Extreme Smock, they can be worn as a single layer or in truly harsh conditions as part of a layering system. Featuring additional details such as mitt grab tabs and extra reinforcement, the Extreme Salopettes have become a classic cold weather garment. Used by the Catlin Arctic Survey and the British Antarctic Survey Lake Ellsworth Expedition during the winter of 2011/2012.

I've skied in these salopettes about 100 days and I love them. I've lent them to a friend who went dogsledding in them and she loves them. They are so simple, I've never felt cold in them and seldom felt too hot. Very comfortable, I really appreciate not having a cold stomach, not having my movement restricted and not having to ware thermals underneath. The heavy duty fabric round the ankle resists ski cuts and doesn't fray when it is sliced. Although I think they'd last forever I'd buy another pair immediately if I ever lost them.
