I belive he uses a bag by either House of Hardy or Barbour in Hemingway. Not sure though, but it has a resemblance to my own bag from House of Hardy (Although mine is slightly smaller.)

Best wishes from Norway

After 80 days and Pole to Pole, I had moved to the US, which has dirth of british television. Until the Travel Channel started covering your series.

These online books are a great help to avid travellers and adventurers like me.

Thank you

His bag from Himalaya is from Whitehousecox wwww.whitehousecox.co.uk
It is 124 GPD to buy and I think it is a limited run. Their customer service is first class so they should be able to help you. They are expensive, but very well made (by hand I beleive) and should last you years!
