All Wrapped Up… Silversea Expedition Style

When packing for a cruise that includes cold, or particularly, warm-to-cold climates, travelers find that it can be difficult to get all the necessary gear into their suitcases. Let's face it, jackets and other heavy clothing just takes up more room than the lighter garments we'd pack for the tropics. Silversea Cruises has solved part of that problem for their Silversea Expedition guests by partnering with the renowned outdoor clothing brand Haglöfs. The ultra-luxury cruise line and clothier have created two new co-branded jackets that Silversea will have the pleasure to present to its guests on expedition cruises to Antarctica, the Arctic, Chilean Fjords, Russian Far East, and Sub-Antarctic New Zealand from June 2016 onwards. The jacket's inner layer features Haglöfs' trademark Quad+ Fusion TM technology and a soft-shell outer layer made of Pertex® Microlight technology bring warmth and insulation thanks to a perfect balance of lightweight softness, durability and water resistance.

Conrad Combrink, director of expedition planning and strategic development, said: "We pride ourselves on being able to honor our guests with industry leading expertise while on board our expedition voyages. The new complimentary Haglöfs jackets represent the finest outdoor wear available, allowing our guests to fully experience all weather environments in comfort and style. Our butlers will be pleased to help our guests to easily pack the jackets thanks to the self-folding mechanism, while the extra-light weight will not represent any obstacle in bringing them back home. The use of the jackets for outdoor activities will hold fond memories of discovery and adventure for our guests long after their voyage has ended."

Over a hundred years of research and development have contributed to the success of Haglöfs and its positioning among the most respected and prestigious brands of top quality adventure gear. Innovations stretching from back systems to choices in materials and original constructions made Haglöfs a leading player in the field of technical outdoor clothing and several successful product releases resulted in international awards and distinctions.

Silversea Expeditions is a leader in the expedition cruise industry, offering luxury all-inclusive voyages while visiting some of the most remote regions on the planet. The knowledge of the onboard expedition leaders, combined with the endorsement and enrichment of the onboard lectures by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), allows guests to experience the finest in adventure and expedition cruising.
