The Edmund Hillary Collection takes its design cues from the 1953 Everest Expedition, and Edmund Hillary's subsequent adventures in the Antarctic. It combines style with function to create a unique look for today. Materials and construction techniques from historic garments have been used to create statement pieces that will stand the test of time.Read More
In support of his charitable legacy, a percentage of the sale of every Edmund Hillary product goes to support causes which were close to Ed's heart - helping the people of Nepal, and outdoor activities for young people around the world.Read More...
Ed Hillary had one of the most remarkable lives of the twentieth century - he was the first man, along with Tenzing Norgay, to climb Mt Everest, he made the first crossing of Antarctica to reach the South Pole using machines, and he built airstrips, schools and hospitals for the mountain people of the Himalayas. He was high commissioner and ambassador to India and Nepal, he wrote books, made films and led expeditions, including one of his personal favourites, taking jet boats up the river Ganges. His actions inspired people to live dynamic and adventurous lives.
The 'Hillary Step' at 8700 metres on Mt Everest stands out, not just as the vertical guardian of the summit of the world's highest mountain, but for the symbolism of going the extra distance to greatness.

Ed's son Peter and his grandsons George and Alexander continue his adventurous pursuits, currently attempting the 7 Summits - The tallest mountains on each of the 7 continents.
"Our Collection is made with high quality materials in timeless heritage designs. I hope you enjoy them."
