The Moncler Bady Short Down Jacket is an abbreviation of Monestier-de-Clermont, a village in the mountains near Grenoble. At the outset, Moncler produced quilted sleeping bags, a single model of a lined cagoule and tents with a telescopie structure and outside cover. The first quilted jackets were conceived for protecting workers from the cold. They used the jackets on top of their overalls in the small mountain establishment. The first to note them and realize their potential was the French mountaineer Lionel Terray. The result saw the specialist range “Moncler pour Lionel Terray”: quilted jackets, salopettes, gloves, high-resistance sleeping bags, and extreme protection made them suitable for the harshest climates. All were put to the test in the course of expeditions and were gradually improved Moncler Bady Short Down Jacket .
In 1954, Moncler quilted jackets were chosen to equip the Italian expedition to Karakorum, which culminated with the conquest of the earth’s second highest summit by Achille Compagnoni and Lino Lacedelli. Moncler also accompanied the French expedition which reached the summit of Makalù in 1995 and was the official supplier for expeditions in Alaska organised by Lionel Terray in 1964.
