This week on the Outside & Active Podcast Dom welcomes Preet Chandi

Preet Chandi is a well-known British-born Indian explorer, physiologist, skier, and athlete. 

She recently completed her solo journey to the South Pole trekking 700 miles across the ice in 40 days. Chandi is also an ex-British army who joined the police force in 2007 and started her expedition after serving the task force for 14 years.

Preet updated each and every moment of her journey via her Instagram handle. Besides the good sides, she has also posted some hurdles that she faced.

She had the idea for more than 2.5 years but she restricted herself until 2021. She planned it ahead and trained for it as well. After completing the tough journey, she has now gained more confidence and faith in herself.

Following her successful journey to the pole, Preet is nicknamed Polar Preet. She has further become the first woman of colour to go on a solo trip to the South pole.

dryrobe® is the original outdoor changing robe - designed to help you get active outside, whatever the weather.

A bit like having your own portable changing room, the oversized design of the dryrobe® Advance gives you plenty of space to get changed in and out of a wetsuit, or sports kit, but is versatile enough to be worn as a coat or a jacket.
Made from 100% recycled fabrics, the waterproof and windproof outer protects you from the elements, whilst its super-warm inner lining helps you dry off quickly after getting out of the water.

What people really love about the dryrobe® Advance though is its versatility. It’s perfect for a huge range of outdoor activities, including surfing, wild swimming, triathlon, paddleboarding, mountain biking, camping and even walking your dog in torrential rain!
