Aurora Expeditions’ Polar Expedition Jackets

From November 2014 each passenger travelling on our Antarctic or Arctic voyages will receive a complimentary polar expedition jacket to wear during your expedition and take home after your trip.

The stylish 2-in-1 jacket is designed to be worn over your essential base layers and provides a versatile layering system suitable for the conditions to be encountered on our polar expeditions. Both pieces offer sophisticated expedition styling and have been customised exclusively for Aurora Expeditions, complete with an included ‘drop seat’ allowing for additional comfort when sitting in Zodiacs.

Your jacket will be ready and waiting for you in your cabin when you board your expedition.

Polar Jacket FAQ

I already have a jacket, can I get a refund or order as a gift?
Our jackets are a complimentary gift and therefore you will not be entitled to any refund. If you do not wish to keep the jacket for yourself, you are welcome to order a different size (however please note sizes cannot be changed on board due to change of mind).

What if the jacket doesn’t fit – can I change it on board?
The sizing chart above provides a good guide and the jackets are sized to a relaxed fit. If you are unsure we suggest you order one size up. We will have a very limited range of extra sizes on board if your jacket is too small.

What colour are the jackets?
The jackets have a blue body and grey arms.

What size should I order?
The sizing chart above provides a good guide and the jackets are sized to a relaxed fit. If you are unsure we suggest you order one size up.

Can I try one on before I order?
We have an example of a large (L) in our Sydney office. You are welcome to visit us to try it on for size.

For more information please contact our office.
