Bison in Antarctica

Argyle Performance Workwear felt privileged to partner with Antarctica New Zealand to conduct footwear trials during their Cape Adare expedition in Antarctica last year. This event sent experienced Antarctica New Zealand staff into one of the harshest environments on earth. A reconnaissance of Robertson's Bay and Cape Adare area was undertaken to identify and survey potentially suitable sites to establish a remote field hut, from which future AHT & NZARI events can work from. 

Part of Argyle’s Mission is to continually innovate and research new ideas, and follow through with testing products to the extreme. This opportunity with the BISON MBBISONR boot was in perfect alignment with this mission.

Argyle performance Workwear has a strong focus on protecting our environment, as reflected in our Telarc ISO 14001 Environmental accreditation, and we hold the Antarctic community in high regard for their efforts in Antarctic research to better understand the future of the planet.

As with any successful product, the opinion of the wearers is very important, and we thank the field team for their open feedback, and look forward to developing products together in the future.
