In the nineteenth edition of BETA we talk about the Nepalese Nirmal «Nimsdai» Purja. The man of superlatives, who climbed all 14 eight-thousanders in record time. In the course of extensive research, we came across major discrepancies, about which Purja has so far remained staunchly silent.

Inconsistencies surrounding the alpine star Nirmal Purja | Newscast Beta | BETA #19
Dress warmly - full body down suit from Marmot
Should the criticism of Nirmal Purja be confirmed or should even more inconsistencies come to light, he has to dress warmly, for example with the Marmot Warmcube 8000M Suit. The Warmcube is filled with high-quality goose down with 800 fill power and also has a removable inner jacket. This has well-closing cuffs on the sleeve ends and offers an additional insulation layer including a hood. More about the Marmot Warmcube 8000M Suit you can find out at Bächli Bergsport.
