In early January 2013, a team of cardiologists and a heart transplant recipient headed down to the South Pole to raise awareness for heart health and the Heart Failure program at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, University Health Network.

On the current Test Your Limits trek, the entire team is outfitted in the ‘MISSION’ coat, the latest expedition downwear from Outdoor Survival Canada. Dr. Ross and Dr. Diego did their training in sister brand OSC Cross’ lightweight down-filled midlayers, and took the packable jackets with them to the South Pole.

… all of the little details and features make the biggest difference when you are exposed to the elements.
