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 have owned these for about 3 years. These are very warm and comfortable to wear. They are too warm for my uses most of the time, however when the conditions and activity level warrant them, they are an asset I wouldn't want to be without. The overall quality and construction is great. However, I have written this review, as I feel they can be improved.

I am unsure whether I would recommend these to others, as I find the button poppers at the top and bottom of the zip to be inadequate. They simply do not stay fastened whilst wearing. This is irritating, as it causes the zip at the top to creep open; and the ankle to fan out like flares.

I will likely take mine to be altered. I feel this popper could be replaced with a clip, or another more secure fastener.

I love this salopettes.I have them since 2012 and used them a lot during the winter. I wear them when the temperature drops below -20c when I know i have to spend extended period of time outside (I once spent hours at -35 with them). They are really warm and comfortable even when exhausting myself i don't feel too uncomfortable when I sweat. Also you can open them on the side to evacuate the heat. The only drawbacks are the weight and the adjustment system at the ankle. It is awkward and basically useless.
