|Boots: Rubber, waterproof boots that are mid-calf or higher
(12-16" high or 30-41cm.) with a strong , ridged non-skid sole are essential for wet landings via Zodiac.
You may have to step from the Zodiac into icy water up to 1 ft. or 30 cm high on some landings. Also, expect poor
footing on the ice and ashore. For maximum warmth, wear loose-fitting boots and an extra layer of socks. Try out
your boots before the voyage.
Parka. Our parkas are lightweight, roomy, wind and water-resistant with some insulation. Bright colours are more
visible - and thus - safer in polar environments, this is why we have parkas in bright red as well as in other
Gloves. Keeping your hands warm and dry can be a challenge. We strongly recommend to have more than one pair of
gloves, in case one gets wet (or lost). We have gloves on sale.
PANTS/TROUSERS. Water-resistant pants/trousers are essential for your comfort. They can be worn over your regular
clothes to keep you warm and dry. We suggest that you bring any sturdy, warm pants/trousers that can be layered
between your long underwear, such as jeans, sweatpants, corduroys and the rainpants.
A backpack or daypack, sturdy, lightweight and waterproof is essential to carry your gear ashore. We have some
daypacks for rent.
