The story of 8848 Altitude began in 1990 after the first successful Swedish expedition to Mount Everest. A designer and ski enthusiast named Magnus Berggren was hired to produce clothing for the expedition team, and after the success of the expedition, Berggren decided to put the garment into production and sell them to a wider audience.
The passion for mountains runs deep in the Swedish company, which together with solid craftsmanship and commitment, has secured 8848 Altitude’s place as one of the leading premium outwear brands.
