The North Face Summit Series Down Jacket from Hervé Barmasse
The North Face Summit Series Down Jacket has been donated by alpinist Hervé Barmasse. He wore it to climb the dangerous 2700m high West Face of Cerro Piergiorgio in Patagonia.
“An apparently blank and featureless wall as high and vertical as the legendary El Capitan, but hardly accessible and besieged by serious snow storms”.
The jacket has been restored and labelled with a personal message from Hervé 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.
