Topic - Parka, insulation pants and sleeping bag (-20C)

theriel - on 26 Nov 2013
I have been looking for a while to buy a parka, insulation pants and a sleeping bag to be used in -20C (for my slowly approaching trip to Aconcagua, later hopefully for Denali).

Having done quite a bit of research online and read dozens of reviews, it seems to me like the most often recommended / best pieces of gear are:
-> parka (down): First Ascent Peak XV Down Jacket
-> pants (full-zip, primaloft): Mountain Hardwear Compressor Pants, or Patagonia DAS Pants
-> sleeping bag (800 fill): Mountain Hardwear -20 Wraith

The problem is... it seems to be close to impossible to source these items in London/Europe!

Thus, the question is - do you happen to know where I could buy these items somewhere in Europe? Alternatively, do you know some equally good alternatives available in the UK?

Thank you very much for your help - it will be much appreciated!
