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.
