The Coldest Journey – with Warmawear™ by Primrose


Tomorrow is the official start of The Coldest Journey and the SA Agulhas will depart London to arrive in Novolazarevskaya, Antarctica, around mid-January. The team, led by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, will attempt to cross the Antarctic over a six month period and are estimated to be spending 273 days on ice with an average of 35km per day. Most of that time will be spent in complete darkness and with possible temperatures as low as -70°C!

In this time the team will have to be entirely self-sufficient as a rescue won’t be possible. Additionally they had to apply for a permit for a winter expedition in Antarctica which is the first time the Foreign & Commonwealth Office has granted one.

Crossing the Antarctic during winter is seen as one of the last great polar challenges. It was first crossed in 1958, but this will be the first time that a winter crossing is attempted.

We are proud that they are considering our Warmawear™ heated clothing range and have trialled our heated gloves and heated insoles which, powered off a strong central battery unit, will protect them against the harsh and life-threatening conditions, such as frostbite.

We wish Sir Ranulph Fiennes and the six explorers all the best!
