Title: Invisible on Everest: innovation and the gear makers / Mike Parsons, Mary B. Rose.
Author(s): Parsons, Mike.
Rose, Mary B.
Date: 2003.
Publisher: Philadelphia, USA: Northern Liberties Press
Abstract: History of mountaineering equipment is also that of bold, free spirits who drove key polar and mountaineering gear innovations over century and half, often triggered by disasters or extreme discomfort. Chapters focus on specific activities or periods, and cover all key mountain hardware as well as development of new, prosperous industries to supply it. Myth of "golfing" 1924 clothing is potentially laid to rest.
