High-performance outdoor brand has designed an expedition photographer’s jacket in collaboration with Leica Camera AG.

The Frank Hurley photographer’s jacket is designed with a lightweight construction to allow freedom of movement when shooting, and a number of pockets designed to keep batteries and devices close to the body. This avoids the negative effective on lifespan caused by exposure to extreme cold temperatures.

The Cordura shell features high-frequency seam sealing to prevent against extreme weather, with a graphene lining and 800-fill European goose down to provide heat regulation to -25°C.

Named after Frank Hurley, Sir Ernest Shackleton’s official photographer and cinematographer, the jacket was created with input from several outdoor photographers working in tough conditions. Polar expedition photographer Martin Hartley was one of the team working with Shackleton to develop the jacket, ensuring it both protected against extreme weather and temperature, and designed to be practical and have useful features for photographer.

The Frank Hurley photographer’s jacket is available now from shackletonlondon.com in four sizes, priced at £1,950.
