The double suit is a quick-change suit for reacting to variations in temperature, and we’ve been hearing tales of its appearances on the world’s highest mountains.
A new documentary has been released about the explorer, author, and user of PHD expedition gear, Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
They're nicely made and very simple ... for a balance of performance and light weight, the Mera Socks ... are the ultimate joy bringers.

These sizes are approximate, to the nearest half size, because down socks are roomy and soft by nature and exact sizings are meaningless.
N.B. Our standard sizes are S / M / L and XL. Other sizes available as a special order at additional cost. Please contact us for details.
* Please note: we make our stuff sacs big enough to allow fairly easy stuffing rather than reducing clothing to the tightest minimum.
Light and simple down socks for camp or as extras to keep your feet warm inside your sleeping bag on cold nights. Lightweight durable fabric soles and water-resistant uppers add a level of practicality for use at a base camp on snow.
A heavily coated ripstop nylon. Totally windproof, very breathable and water-resistant and suitably robust.
Superb European goose down, selected for loft and liveliness.
"I've worn the Mera Down Socks on the last few camps when sitting in the tent, and as it's been below zero in the tent every time, they've been fantastic.
"I used them in the evenings during the trek - they were very warm and it was a bit of luxury to pull them on after 9 hours of walking."
— Graham Brothwood, 9 day camping trip to Langtang Valley (Nepal) up to 3,840 metres.
"I've kept them on when I've got into the bag, but never for long, too damned warm. They're nicely made and very simple, 180g, with box wall baffles and a simple drawcord at the ankle. The fabric is good enough for a quick nip outside for a pee if it's not wet; frozen or dry-ish ground is fine.
"Genius [piece] of kit these. There are more technical PHD models available, and for expedition or harder use they'd be the choice, but for a balance of performance and light weight, the Mera Socks ... are the ultimate joy bringers."
— Petesy (Peter Macfarlane).
