Thousands of Challengers descend on Fort Augustus at the head of Loch Ness in our mind-blowing Scottish Coast to Coast event. Once the bikes are parked and the running is done for the day, the feel of a nice warm thermal jacket getting thrown round weary shoulders while camp is made, food is cooked and beers are sunk, is one of adventure’s most under-rated highlights. You’ve earned that beer. And that cosy jacket.

About Our Sorona® Fill
DuPont™ continues its legacy in fiber technology creating a breakthrough renewably sourced polymer for fibre and fabric – DuPont™ Sorona®
Sorona® is made, in part, with bio-based ingredients instead of petrochemicals, thereby, reducing dependency on petroleum/fossil fuels – a finite resource.
A leading biopolymer, Sorona® contains 37 percent annually renewable plant-based ingredients. Even better is its environmental footprint. Producing Sorona® uses 30 percent less energy and releases 63 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to the production of nylon 6.
Sorona® renewably sourced fibre delivers superior performance benefits to sustainable clothing. Fabrics that use Sorona® are very soft, very strong and dry quickly. Sorona® helps fabrics stretch comfortably and retain their shape.
