Scott Sears Breaks South Pole Record

The purpose of Shackleton is to 'inspire and equip the modern pioneer.'

We work with adventurers and pioneers around the world to assist their endeavours and field test our latest kit. If you're planning something extraordinary, and you think we should talk, please get in touch: pioneer@theshackleton.com.

 

On Christmas Day evening (9pm), Briton Scott Sears walked into the Amundsen-Scott base at the South Pole. He had just become the youngest person in history to trek 700 miles from the frozen southern ocean to the pole. He had done so alone, unsupported and unassisted, breaking the previous record by almost 3 years.

As a lead sponsor and official clothing supplier to this historic expedition, Shackleton is proud to have supplied Scott with our polar-tested, British made kit, keeping him safe and warm in the fangs of Antarctic gales and temperatures dropping to -60.

Scott gives testimony to the Shackleton ethos. He is endlessly optimistic, tough and cheery in the face of hard times.
