Antarctic Logistics and Expeditions is the sole provider of logistic support and safety backup for climbing expeditions to Mt. Vinson, the highest peak in Antarctica. Working in the world's coldest environment, the mechanics at ALE operate and maintain everything from snowmobiles to turbo-prop planes to the tracked passenger vans that shuttle climbers from the blue ice runway to Union Glacier Camp. In advance of First Ascent's Mt Vinson expedition, our design team worked with ALE to create a parka that would not only keep their logistical support staff warm in the coldest place on earth, but also stand up to the daily task of twisting wrenches on the ice.
