A major step forward for polar explorers: specialist salopettes containing a range of features never seen before in expedition apparel. In conjunction with the Challenger Expedition Pulk Jacket they have been tested by Louis Rudd in some of the harshest environments on the planet including Antarctica, the Alps, Norway and Iceland.
The CHALLENGER Expedition Salopettes boast a number of technical features that make them the ultimate choice for polar explorers. Fully seam-sealed and complete with Aquaguard zippers, they’re both fully waterproof and breathable, providing unbeatable protection from even the most extreme conditions. The lightweight shell has reinforced panels to protect against ski abrasions as well as complementing the high impact areas around the removable knee pad inserts when required.
Designed for explorers who know speed is of the essence and exposure needs to be kept to a minimum, the full drop seat features side seams with 2-way zip openings and easy grip pulls at the top and bottom, providing easy access without having to remove more than necessary.
The most unique aspect of the CHALLENGER Expedition Salopettes is the innovative removable down panel that protects against polar thigh when facing brutal Antarctic winds.
Louis is acutely aware of how essential the right equipment is, which is why after nine iterations of prototyping, they are finally ready to be the first choice for those who demand the best from their equipment.
Combine with the CHALLENGER Expedition Pulk Jacket to utilise the compatible chest pockets and equip you For The Challenge.
