We are sherpa


From the highest reaches of the Himalayas, our people lead the world in mountaineering with warmth, grace and good humor. In our humble experience, there is no better place for testing equipment—and character.


Saying “Made in Nepal” means the world to us—socially, economically and environmentally. Because we are Sherpa-owned and Sherpa-run, we are very pleased to report that most of our products come directly from Kathmandu. And when we go to our neighbors for help in meeting demand, we always do it with the highest quality control and share the news right on the label.

Made in Nepal. Just like us.


Three cheers for Lakpa Rita. “Congratulations to our brand ambassador Lakpa Rita Sherpa for safely summiting Everest for the 15th time on May 19th with the Alpine Ascents team! We are so glad to hear that everyone on the team is headed back to Base Camp safe and sound.” This cheerful post went up on our Facebook page on the joyous occasion of Lakpa Rita’s amazing 15th summit of Everest. This time, he led a team of six climbers from the U.S. to the top, breaking trail all the way from Camp 4 in hip-deep snow. It was his toughest Everest climb yet, but he looks forward to going again—and adding K2 as soon as the opportunity arises. Lakpa Rita has


already made history as the first Sherpa to climb the highest mountain on each of seven continents, and to us he stands for the very best in our tradition, while being the symbol of the modern Sherpa. Behind his smiling demeanor lies the brain of a supreme Sirdar. He is a tough and fair handler of people who will not brook any nonsense. Since the days of our first leaky rain jackets, which he tested without complaining, Lakpa Rita has never failed to guide us in the quest for outstanding gear. We are deeply honored that he has accepted the role of our lead brand ambassador. We are proud to follow him. Anywhere.

The layer you put next to your skin is probably the most important—and versatile—thing you pack. It serves as the conductor between you and the world “out there,” moving moisture away from your skin so you feel dry and comfortable even if you’re working up a sweat. And, depending on what the weather is doing, it can be worn on its own or under other layers. We use materials that incorporate the latest technologies to ensure you get the best performance available —like our proprietary Dry-Zone® “smart” fabric, naturally odor-resistant bamboo charcoal, and easy-on-the-earth, itch-free Merino wool.

Serap Jangbu Sherpa is the first Nepali to stand atop the eight 8,000-meter peaks in his own country.

If you plan to invest in just one warmer base layer this year, this is it. • Blocks 99% of UV rays (50+ UPF) so you don’t get burned at high elevations • So light in weight, it floats • Woven with anti-bacterial silver ions to minimize odors • Raglan sleeves have flat-locked seams to reduce the chafing that can occur under pack straps SP12343 | Size: S-XXL | Wt: 250 g.

Think of these as insulation for the house called your body. Their job is to gather up body heat and hold it. Most of the time, you’ll be wearing one as an easy warm-up over a base layer. And when the weather dictates a need to throw a shell on top, the streamlined silhouette makes for a hitch-free, low-bulk, less-constrictive layering experience. When you get to the tea house and it’s time to shed the shell, the handsome styling will add grace to any situation. We leave the social skills to you.

The key here is getting as much warmth as possible into a light, compressible layer. For extreme cold, down insulation still gets the prize. But when it looks like the weatherman is calling for wet with that cold, go with synthetics. We supply both options in multiple variations. And with our Vajra pants, we don’t leave your legs out in the cold either. Every piece incorporates years of feedback from our Sherpa athletes who live, work and play in the Himalayan mountains.

Don’t let a little cold weather keep you indoors. When the temperature drops, put a mid-layer over your base layer—and if that’s not enough, throw a shell on top of it. The mid-layer acts as warmth-retaining insulation between your base layer and shell—and it can make all the difference between comfort and running for shelter. Every mid-layer we make has a body-conscious fit, so it won’t feel bulky under other layers. And when it’s warm enough to wear solo, you’ll appreciate our refined, flattering designs.

In the mountains, the temperature drops four degrees for every 1,000 feet of elevation you gain. In high Himalayan villages like Thyangboche, Pheriche, and Lobuche, it’s common for the temp never to hit 60°F during daylight. To stay comfortable up here, you better have a warm sweater. Made of the latest wool blends and synthetic fabrics, every one of our thermal pieces will see you through with admirable adaptability: Wear them as stand-alone jackets, or as a midlayer under a shell. They look and feel so good, you’ll be using them both on the trail, and in town.

Choose a soft shell as your outermost layer for all but the wettest conditions. Aptly named, they are soft and stretchy, not crunchy or stiff—so they bend where you bend, and stretch when you stretch— which makes for more comfort when you’re on the move. They’re also more breathable than traditional hard shells, which means you can go longer and farther before changing-up your layering system.

Rimjhim (rim•jim) Handwarmers new It seemed a crime to throw out the perfectly good remnant yarn that results from the making of our other wool hats, so we knit them into one-of-a-kind wristlets—and fell in love with the outcome.

Pertemba Sherpa


Our Quiet Hero.

I first met Pertemba Sherpa 32 years ago at a Losar celebration in midtown Manhattan. Happy to see a face from my village, I called him Achu, “elder brother”. Instantly vivacious and humble, he brushed off his heroic summit from the impossible South West face of Mt. Everest in 1975. Yet he was aware of what he had accomplished at the raw age of 27, as Head Sirdar of the first successful attempt at the world’s highest and steepest route. Pertemba climbed Everest two more times after that, and led a successful trekking business for more than 30 years, personally guiding such luminaries as His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. Today, he still carries a dignified silhouette in his native Khumjung, helping to build schools and bring teachers to remote Rolwaling. He has even given his childhood home to the Sherpa Heritage Museum. As for his personal legacy, the deep respect granted by young Sherpa climbers who make way when he enters a room— that is enough. In founding Sherpa Adventure Gear, I was determined to keep our unsung heroes from disappearing into myth. As we follow Pertemba Dai, I know we’re on the right path.
