Expedition Galleries

The Parka Shop Winter Collection

On the following pages we have selected clothing for expeditions, high altitude climbing, travelling to the extreme North or South or any other use where the right choice is essential for both a persons comfort and possibly survival. For each item we've tried to find out where it was manufactured, so that you may have the ability to find a retailer or get more information.

We know there are many more similar expedition quality garments available and we welcome information from manufacturers / suppliers of these garments. We would also welcome pictures of these garments in use, to further assist people trying to choose the ideal clothing for their next expedition. Please Email us with your information.
