If you’re planning to climb Mount Everest, to do an expedition in the Arctic, or you happen to live in Prince George, British Columbia, you might want to purchase a First Ascent Peak XV snow suit for this winter’s wear.
This is the ultimate extreme cold weather survival gear, and it puts all other winter gear to shame. It features three layers of European goose down, 10 pockets, waterproof rip stop fabric, interior wrist gaiters and a long list of other features that let you laugh in the face of old man winter. The suit’s also designed so it can be used as a sleeping bag, so if lock your keys in the truck on the back roads, you’ll still be safe from the cold. Goose down jackets already cost about $600, so why not shell $400 more for the full monty?
