As used by Pem Chhiri Sherpa on the first winter ascent of K2, 16 January 2021.
The 'walking refuge', with a pedigree of scores of major expeditions into the world's worst conditions. With the great warmth of its full weight down filling it has proved itself a life saver in conditions below -50C (-58F).
HS2 has now replaced Tempest as the standard outer fabric for the Omega Suit, making it lighter, more waterproof and more breathable than before. Tempest remains an option for trips where extra durability is the most important factor.
As used by Team N2i, in the Polar Challenge, by Joao Garcia, the EverestMax team, Paul Deegan, RAF Mountain Rescue, and many others.
950 down option
This option adds 4°C to the suit's performance bringing the Typical Operating Temperature to -59°C.
Also available in custom sizes. We make clothing to order, so if you’re not a standard size we can make it to fit. To order a non-standard custom size, select the Custom Sizing tab and choose the body width, body length, inside leg and arm length sizes that work for you. A custom size takes us a little longer (typically two weeks longer) to make and, because it’s personalized, it’s non-returnable and our customer loyalty scheme can’t be applied.
For a lighter, warmer version of this suit, suitable for winter ascents of 8000m peaks, see our K Series Omega Down Suit.
