Drawn from real world experience
Years of leading expeditions within UK Special Forces culminated in the creation of our iconic Summit Suit, which broke all records with ambassador Nims Purja on his legendary “Project Possible”.
From this pinnacle of garment engineering stems our range of insulated jackets. The same innovative fabrics and design techniques that have taken our team to the top of the world are now made available to you - because ‘aspiration’ need not mean ‘elevation’.
Read on below for our comprehensive guide to finding your next winter jacket.
The Extreme One
Experience what it is like to wear the ThruDark Summit Suit. A direct descendant, the Patriot is a pullover smock-style, insulated jacket reinforced with stronger-than-steel Dyneema fibres.
Designed for 8,000m elevation and extreme -40 degrees Fahrenheit. Look out for micro-fleece lined hand warmer pockets and a large external dump pouch for maximum carry capacity.
It's built to survive the "Death Zone", what more could you need?
"So many superlatives could describe the Patriot Jacket...However, I keep coming back to one: beast."
The Technical One
An insulated jacket with technical adjustments carefully considered for backpack carriage.
Down fill front and arms meet a unique stretch fabric back vent designed to keep you from overheating when carrying a backpack on your winter expeditions.
It’s a jacket that’s been thought through… by those that know, for those that know what they need.
The Versatile One
The only insulated jacket in our range to feature synthetic down fill.
This means that the Engage is the most versatile jacket in this guide with an optimum weight to warmth ratio which handles humidity better and dries faster.
It’s enough to see you through the depths of winter and well into milder climates beyond.
The Familiar One
The Breach Jacket is your recognizable, zip through down jacket with a difference.
It’s bolstered by targeted Cordura reinforcements for increased abrasion resistance at critical areas and like all of our insulated jackets features down filled purely from white goose, breast feathers. A mixture of the finest synthetic and natural materials for maximum insulated and hydrophobic qualities, built to last.
This could well be the
last best down jacket you ever buy.

The Extra Layer
Superior insulated design, packed into a lightweight gilet style.
Insulated with 800 goose down fill, fortified with abrasion resistant Dyneema and rip-stop Pertex and topped by a high rise collar for added protection from the elements.
Works best combined with our Siege Base Layer or Phalanx Fleece - take Foxy’s advice on this one.
A flexible option for layering up this winter.
An outsider among outsiders, the Melee is a jacket packed with attitude.
It’s heavily insulated, water-resistant and rip-stop.
It’s abrasion-resistant and aesthetically sharp.
It’s for those who want to stand up to anything and stand out at the same time.
