RAF Mountain Rescue Parka


The Holy Grail.

Aniak, Alaska. 321 miles almost due west of Anchorage. Find a bush pilot who will take you to the middle of more nowhere than you've ever seen. The plane will land on a sandbar or on the top of a mountain. Or on a meat strip (used for landing to help haul out game).

From then on, wherever you take a step, yours might be the first human foot ever to tread on that exact spot.

That's reason enough to go there.

Spend time in remote places, and your gear—your clothing, in particular—takes on new importance.

The Royal Air Force says this coat does the job. I'm not inclined to argue.

Consider the facts...
