The main producer of special-purpose clothing for polar expeditions carried
out by POLAR WORLD is a Moscow-based garment-making
company named BASK.
The clothing produced by BASK company is made with allowance for specific
nature of extreme climatic conditions under which polar expeditions are
conducted, and with the latest developments and designs in the sphere of
sports clothing taken into account. Therefore, it ensures that the travellers are
provided with a totally new level of safety and comfort. The air temperature in
the Arctic region may be as low as minus 35°C, whereas at the altitude of
2,500 meters (that's the altitude from which we do parachute jumping) it may
reach minus 60°C. Back in 1998 the members of the Malaysian skydiving
team, who were basically accustomed to skydiving under tropical
conditions, were very comfortable in the Arctic Pole thanks to our clothing.
Having obtained a unique experience in using special-purpose clothing in our
extreme Arctic expeditions, we offer to the future participants of our projects
an optimum assortment of special-purpose clothing items to be used under
polar conditions. You can order the clothing you need directly from us:
