Designed for fast moving expeditions to the highest levels or for any extreme cold weather venture where weight is at a premium.

*Please note: we make our stuff sacs big enough to allow fairly easy stuffing rather than reducing the salopettes to the tightest minimum. What air is left in the packed item will easily be compressed out of it, if you are squashing it into a small space in your rucksack. Tiny stuff sacs look impressive: but unless you are a sac-wrestling fan, fighting the gear into them day after day can be an unnecessary chore.
"Just a quick note to let you know that ALL 5 members of our team reached the Summit of Cho Oyo (8201m). Another member of the team wore [your Xero down] Salopettes and...was comfortable and impressed. Thanks for the great gear". 'Lanx', Equipment buyer, UK Reserve Forces Seven Summits team.
"Very happy to report that the Xero Salopettes performed fantastically and kept us warm and safe especially during summit day where temperatures dropped below -30 deg C." Robert Gatt, Challenge8000, Cho Oyu.
"Many thanks for the Xero salopettes for Cho Oyu which worked very well. " J.P.
