Equips An Expedition to Antarctica
"When my husband and I got the assignment to cave dive
inside an iceberg in Antarctica, we knew we needed to
assemble the most advanced diving tools available for the
extreme environment. We needed to have reliable equipment to
handle the toughest and most remote diving in the world Paul and
i treat technical diving challenges as an exercise in problem
solving. We knew right away that we needed to contact PATCO to
handle our thermal protection. As the industry leader and
innovators in suit heaters, there was no question that they
could add to our comfort and productivity while on assignment
with National Geographic."
- Paul and Jill Heinrich
"...Creating compelling images in the wild underwater
is directly related to the time one invests in observation and
execution. When I work underwater, particularly in cold or the
very cold water in Antarctica, my time is very limited and so
are the array of images.
No longer do I face this limitation. With the use of the
PATCO heater system, I was able to invest over 45 minutes in
Antarctica where the temperatures are 32-34 degrees. The heater
provided me with the warmth I needed to concentrate on my
shooting, with enough time to fid interesting subjects and film
their behavior, rather than fight with the chill that usually
forces me to surface after 30 minutes without the images I was
