HAGLÖFS SKI for Autumn 08

For Autumn 2008 Haglöfs has launched a whole new co-ordinated range of ski clothing and backpacks designed with a focus on backcountry skiing, ski mountaineering, free skiing, heli skiing etc.
The clothing range is made from various WINDSTOPPER and GORE-TEX fabrics –  WINDSTOPPER Shell, WINDSTOPPER Soft Shell, two layer GORE-TEX and GORE-TEX Soft Shell. All jackets have snow skirts with press-studs that can be attached to the pant to minimize snow from entering the garment. All pants have ankle cuffs and gaiters and most garments incorporate the Recco Avalanche Rescue System Reflector. A striking commercial colour palette is used across the range of nine garments, which are all available in both mens and womens fit.
Some examples from the range are:
JAW JACKET AND PANT are windproof, very water resistant garments made from WINDSTOPPER Soft Shell. The jacket features a helmet compatible 3 way adjustable hood with a stand alone collar, and the pant has thigh ventilation zips and Schoeller Keprotec reinforced insteps.
IMPACT JACKET is a GORE-TEX PRO SHELL 2 layer garment with 3D mesh lining in the shoulders and back for increased comfort and insulation.
SPINDRIFT JACKET AND PANT cleverly use a combination of WINDSTOPPER Shell and 2 layer GORE-TEX to combine the waterproofness of GORE-TEX and the breathability of WINDSTOPPER where required in different parts of the garments.
The technical range of dedicated ski backpacks are also designed for a days skiing, in particular alpine touring, free skiing and off-piste skiing. The words fit, function and user friendliness are the over-riding design principles. The packs have tight body hugging shapes with contoured back panels and low centers of gravity. Features are easy to understand and easy to use with zip pullers and tension buckles that are easy to grab, even with gloves on. The pockets are placed for easy access even when the skis are attached to the pack, and the ski attachments are retractable so as not to catch on lifts or branches. The hydration system has insulated channels to counter ice build up. There are a total of six packs in the same striking colour combination to match the clothing.
Haglöfs LIM (Less Is More) range grows in popularity and for Autumn 2008 features a total of 12 clothing styles all with a striking characteristic LIM identity in graphite with yellow accents. The range is designed to be low in weight, high in thermal capacity and functional in design.
