”I always use Aclima! The quality is unbeatable. Durability, fit and designe are undoubtedly best on the market, which means best in the world. My activity requires the absolute best of quality and durability, and only Aclima can give me that quality needed. I wear the same wool net and light wool / warm wool throughout an entire expedition ... without changing for 2 months. A summit push can last up to 24 hours with temperatures from +10C to – 40C. It's important to have layers that keeps me warm without having to change during a push like that. And since I am very fond of animals, it is important to me that Aclima puts animal welfare as one of their main pillars. Thank you very much, Aclima!"

"I've been using Aclima for more than 10 years, and what I particularly like is the quality of the products during my long expeditions. I wear and tear, and what’s important for me is that I can for example paddle for 10-11 hours continuously, through morning cold, morning heat and evening cold, without having the need to change my clothes.
The combination of the different products from Aclima keeps me warm. Both during the summer and wintertime and in both minus and plus degrees. Additionaly, I like the innovation; there are many features with the same product. Simple, ingenious things like reinforcement on the WoolNet shoulders, so that you can carry a heavy backpack without any discomfort.”

"I use Aclima wool because it has quality and cool design at the same time! It is important for me to use fresh colours and a design that is noticed among the thousands of Norwegians who is out hiking. At the same time, the wool must keep a freezing person like me - warm and comfortable - through long winters in temperatures down to -45 celcius degrees”
