Customer Rob is just lately back from an 8-day ski trip in Antarctica. Among his highly specialized gear were a Mouton Hat and Neck Gaiter, which he wore mostly during rest periods while skiing from 89 degrees South Latitude to the Absolute South Pole. Rob is posting about this intense trip on Instagram. We're very glad Rob and the group made it to the South Pole (HOORAY!) and then home safely. Strong winds, temps typically at -15F to -20F (about -28C) and the location itself make such a journey very difficult and dangerous. My hat is off to to all involved! .... I had no idea that in addition to the weather, the South Pole is actually at an altitude of 9300 feet (2835 meters).
