The North Face Summit Series Down Jacket from Tamara Lunger
The North Face Summit Series Down Jacket has been donated by alpine climber Tamara Lunger. She wore this jacket climbing the Nanga Parbat, an 8126 metre killer mountain in the western Himalaya’s. At 8000 meters, Tamara had to stop her climb and descend due to severe weather conditions. “However difficult, this decision gained me a tremendous amount of strength and motivation, of which this jacket became a symbol.”
The jacket has been restored and labelled with a personal message from Tamara 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.
