The North Face Antarctica Summit Series Ventrix Expedition Jacket from Conrad Anker
The North Face Antarctica Summit Series Ventrix Expedition Jacket has been donated by one of the most impressive explorers of our time: alpine climber Conrad Anker. It helped him cope with - 30 degree colds during a month-long expedition in Antarctica, climbing the six peaks of the Wolf’s Jaw massif.
The jacket has been restored and labelled with a personal message from Conrad to inspire its new owner to never stop exploring. Making it a true one-of-a-kind collector’s piece.

The Società degli Alpinisti Tridentini (SAT) was founded in Madonna di Campiglio in 1872 under the name Società Alpina del Trentino. The founding members wanted to promote the knowledge of the Trentino mountains, the tourism development of the valleys and the "Italianness" of Trentino. The means to pursue these goals were: the construction of shelters, the construction of paths, funding for hoteliers, organization of mountain guides, ascension of peaks and publication of geographical and mountaineering writings.
In 1920 the SAT became a section of the Italian Alpine Club (CAI), whilst remaining an autonomous entity.
