From 8,000 Meters to City Streets: Nimsdai Purja’s Technical Apparel Bridges Peaks and Pavement

The new Nimsdai apparel collection results from 11 months of rigorous testing by Purja’s team in extreme mountain environments. Every detail has been meticulously designed for ultimate durability, reliability and functionality in the world’s highest peaks. The collection includes versatile base layers, warm fleece mid-layers, expedition-grade down jackets, and waterproof GORE-TEX shells. Some proceeds will support the Nimsdai Foundation’s projects like cleaning up Mount Everest and building infrastructure for porters. With technical features like RECCO rescue technology, the line sets a new standard for performance mountain wear proven by the world’s elite climbers.

Ground-breaking mountaineer Nimsdai Purja’s first apparel collection, provides everything adventurers need to ‘achieve their new possible.’

Famous for climbing all 14 of the world’s highest peaks in just 6 months and 6 days, Nimsdai and his team spend 11 months of the year on the Big Mountains. The collection has been designed, developed, and exped-tested by these world record breakers in the most extreme environments on Earth.

This first collection sets a new benchmark for kit defined by the environment in which it is used. Down to the little details like zip lengths – every part has been created for ultimate Big Mountain durability, reliability, and functionality.

The new collection looks good and does good too – 5% of all proceeds from across the Nimsdai Brands (including Nimsdai Store, Elite Exped, Skydive Nimsdai, as well as from future book and film opportunities, brand endorsements and speaking events), go to the charitable Nimsdai Foundation to fund projects that redefine what is possible, like this year’s Big Mountain Clean Up on Everest and building a Porters Lodge in Lobuche.

Introducing the Nimsdai Baselayer – lightweight, breathable, and designed for all outdoor activities – with SPF 50/ UV protection built into the soft, anti-microbial fleece to protect you wash, after wash. Featuring a long chest zip for ventilation and a hood and face covering.

The Exped Fleece is the perfect mid-layer for mountaineering expeditions, and stylish enough for urban wear. The high-performance polyester Polartec® Thermal Pro fleece, combines with breathable sections for improved sweat-wicking. Warm, breathable, and comfortable.

Inspired by Nimsdai’s ground-breaking 14 Peaks record, the Project Possible Down Jacket excels in extreme cold-weather adventures. It delivers outstanding warmth through 790 fill power down, combined with a durable two-layer Nylon fabric with DWR treatment and 15k/15K membrane. It features Pertex Quantum technology, known for its high loft to light weight. Additional elasticated detailing ensures the Jacket sits closer to the body, retaining more heat, Polartec® fleece inside the pockets provides extra warmth and micro-fibre fleece round the face protects from chaffing. Stay searchable in an emergency with RECCO technology.

Stay dry in the most extreme conditions – the K2 Winter Waterproof Jacket and Trousers use GORE-TEX Pro three-layer membrane and nylon outer fabric, offering ultra-durable, waterproof protection with maximum breathability. The relaxed Jacket fit allows for free movement during any challenging obstacles, while the Trousers have scuff guards and long ventilation zips to allow for easy use with crampons and skies. Complete with multiple pockets and RECCO search technology.
