Frank Hurley was a highly-influential pioneering photographer and explorer who documented a harrowing four-year Imperial Trans-Antarctic journey from 1914 to ’17. And, despite passing away in ’62, Hurley’s legacy and contribution to photography are now being honored by the London-based Shackleton and German camera firm Leica with a collaborative project that’s being touted as the “world’s first extreme-weather photographer’s jacket.”

Rated to withstand otherworldly temperatures as low as -25ºC, the Photographer’s Jacket features an ultra-rugged Cordura shell and seam-sealing paired with a Graphene lining stuffed with 800 fill-power European goose down. Engineered to ensure even the most hostile conditions don’t stand in the way of you getting the perfect shot, the Italian-made jacket also boasts internal storm cuffs and neck venting, as well as an adjustable and removable synthetic fur-lined hood. Developed with assistance and input from a slew of seasoned expedition photographers, the heavy-duty winter jacket sports a number of features making it the perfect garment for photographers facing sub-zero conditions. This includes a trio of dedicated memory card slots, an upper-arm pocket for a lens cleaner, a special internal quick-access pocket that utilizes the body core’s thermal output to keep batteries warm (thereby extending battery life), and a collapsible external drop pocket that’s large enough to comfortably accommodate a camera body and lens. The Shackleton x Leica Frank Hurley Photographer’s Jacket is currently available for $2,607.
