Introducing the new Khangri (Sherpa=mountain) Alpine Series of Base/Mid Layers, Soft/Hard Shell Jackets+Pants

Sherpa Adventure Gear- since 2003---has always had very distinct design features for its outerwear/casual apparel --a reflection of its country of origin (and most manufacturing)- Nepal.
For the upcoming season-techy pieces-athlete tested on mountains all over the planet-including- of course, Mt. Everest- are launching-dubbed the Khangri collection-with intuitive and handy (very) features "...from zipper pulls, to drawcords, to pockets. For example, pockets on insulated
layers are located on the right side of the chest—opposite from pockets of the jackets—to minimize bulk. Drawcords tuck out of the way in hidden alcoves. Horizontal thumbholes hold layers readily in place. And of course, all products are harness, helmet and pack compatible."
