Extremities® began in the 1980s to fill a gap in the market for dedicated clothing accessories that protected the extremities of the body in the worst possible conditions. Initially marketed under the Wild Country name it became the choice specialist range of head, hand and foot protection for mountain and polar expeditions and was re-branded ‘Extremities®’ in 1991.
How Extremities® Has Evolved
Over the last 30 years our gloves, hats, socks and gaiters have evolved to provide a wider selection of styles that are suitable for more outdoor activities. Extremities® clothing accessories have been put to the test by explorers and record-breaking outdoor athletes who have taken them to the ends of the earth and some of the most extreme places on the planet.
