We were highly fortunate in having Fortress Clothing as one of our ICE2017 Arctic Trucks Iceland Expedition Sponsors.


We field tested some of their gear (photo above), both during our summer 2017 expedition, and on previous winter pre-expedition trip to Iceland (December 2016).



We found both the sleeveless waistcoat and jacket to be extremely useful.

Not only were they very light weight and comfortable to wear, but also extremely warm (especially when worn as a mid-layer), but also very easy to dry when wet, and easy to clean when dirty.

If you are interested in what we had to say about our sponsors and kit, check out our website blog articles:

I can recommend the equipment we tested, and Fortress Clothing offer a lot more options - check out their website for more details, and watch some of their gear test videos (quite interesting...).
