Norse Projects has built on the recent release of its Fall/Winter 2021 collection, by teaming up with the Tundra Ecology Lab at the University of British Columbia to document their most recent research and exploratory expedition to Alexandra Fiord on the east coast of Ellesmere Island.

Instigated by Dr Greg Henry, the Tundra Ecology Lab set up a series of warming experiments and climate stations on the Island as the first stage of the International Tundra Experiment. Decades on and the ever-growing project continues to play a vital part in gathering information surrounding the tundra ecosystem’s response to climate change.

To ensure the latest six person research team were in a position to safely carry out the necessary research, Norse Projects decided to craft them a selection of fit-for-purpose garments.

Tackling extreme winds and freezing temperatures is no mean feat, which is why Norse opted for interior warmth and comfort with its essential Niels Standards, brushed lambswool knits and classic Norse beanie. Further insulation was provided through the Otto Light WR midlayer which offered a lighter primaloft option, while protection from the cold and rain was ensured through the capsule’s two GORE-TEX pieces in the Rokkvi 5.0 and Alvar Infinium 2.0.

The full Norse Project x Ellesmere Island FW21 collection is available to buy now from the brand’s online webstore.

In other news, CMF Outdoor Garment has unveiled its forthcoming hiking-inspired 432Hz collaboration.
