Winter collection: Engineered for Extremes

Introducing the Shackleton Winter 19/20 Collection of outerwear and knitwear. Designed for purpose. Crafted for comfort. Engineered for extremes.

Over the past 12 months we have tried and tested an array of materials, fabrics and precision technologies to develop our new collection of performance apparel. And here it is... our Winter 19/20 Collection: Engineered for Extremes. 

The outerwear range includes an upgraded iteration of the Endurance Parka and a jacket inspired by polar aviators flying in the most volatile environments on earth.

Our knitwear features cashmere, Geelong lambswool and Merino; luxurious, hard-wearing, insulating yarns with fantastic performance properties. We've also developed our most innovative baselayer to date, the Vincent.

We have incorporated graphene, a revolutionary material with immense heat regulation properties; and several of our insulated jackets are filled with pure 100% goose down, making them the lightest, most efficient jackets in their class. Saying that, we understand that not every Shackleton jacket and sweater will venture to the South Pole, and while we are a function-first brand, we appreciate the need for genuine everyday comfort.

Our products are designed in London and made in Britain and Italy. We are proud to be a fur-free brand and all the goose down used in our outerwear is RDS-certified.

KNITWEAR - Sweaters & Baselayers

Hero Roll Neck Sweater | Available in 4 colours

Made from 100% Geelong lambswool, the Hero is super-soft, luxurious and extremely tough. Hand-linked construction for increased strength, the heavy-gauge knit and basket weave performs in cold environments, while ensuring that it retains a heritage look.

The Marston is highly-versatile. Made from 100% Merino wool, it is soft, durable and fast drying. It also cools and heats the body according to the conditions. The Marston is remarkably light, while the high collar offers extra thermal protection and the quarter-zip allows for ventilation.

Dulwich Crew Neck Sweater | Available in 4 colours

The Dulwich is 100% British lambswool; it’s incredibly soft, comfortable and efficient at retaining body heat. A 12-gauge seamless knit construction prevents friction and unravelling.
