Mountain Designs Pro-Elite White Limbo Down Suit

Designed for alpine mountaineering and high altitudes, the Pro-Elite White Limbo Down Suit is a necessity for elite athletes with their sights set on 8,000 metre peaks and extreme cold conditions.

One of our earliest down suits was worn by the first Australians to summit Mount Everest in 1984 and ever since, we’ve been using the latest design innovations and technology to make each down suit better. Our most recent model is warmer, lighter and more durable than ever before with a Gore ® Windstopper® Active Shell and Cordura ® 1000 denier nylon for high abrasion areas.

Note: This product only available for purchase in select stores: Ashmore, Adelaide, Bondi, Canberra, Chatswood Chase, Fortitude Valley, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney. Please contact the store to arrange a fitting time.


Mountaineer and adventurer, Alyssa Azar, has worn a White Limbo Down Suit to Mount Manaslu and is taking it with her on an attempt to be the youngest Australian to climb Everest.


Our Pro-Elite gear has been to the highest places in the world – from K2 to Everest to the Andes. The White Limbo Down Suit is completely equipped with the functionality, warmth, performance and features you need to reach your destination.

European goose down with 800 fill power is used in the upper body where you need it most and 700 fill power down is used in the lower body for sufficient warmth and flexible movement. To stop tears from ice, rocks and crampon spikes, 1000 denier Cordura is used on the knees, scuff pads and drop seat of the pants for heavy duty abrasion resistance.

A fleece lined collar provides breathable warmth and is designed to fit comfortably around an oxygen mask. When necessary, the adjustable hood with a down filled gutter can be pulled right up around your eyes to reduce exposure to the extreme conditions.

The Mountain Designs White Limbo Down Suit has been to the highest and wildest places on earth. Where will you take it?
