Good For Urban Camping, Not For Everest

The brand name of the little ´coat´ and ´pants´ is Mallory and Irvine.

While trying to Google a link to the manufacturers (which I couldn´t find), I discovered that these are the names of two British explorers that disappeared in 1924 while trying to climb the not-then conquered Mount Everest.

They were George Leigh Mallory and Andrew "Sandy" Irvine.

I can´t say that I find this an inspiring or logical name for my featherlite clothes.

They are too thin to protect anyone against Everest cold.

It seems a bit of a disturbing choice for a brand name.
