In addition to heaps of epic photos, we have also highlighted some of the year’s best gear in a brand-new feature we’re calling “Gear Up.” In the Photo Annual, we’ve included a smattering of products from Bloom, Under Armour, Picture and Corbeaux, which is available for you, below. Check it out now and stay tuned to freeskier.com this season for more gear than you can handle.
1. Shandoka 1Z
Corbeaux | $260.00
“Shandoka” is from the native Ute Indian language meaning “The Storm Bringer” and this onesie is made to shield you from the coldest storms you will encounter. Made from a bamboo and polyester blend, it features the quick-drying advantage of polyester along with the natural antimicrobial component of bamboo. It’s made in the USA and also includes built-in mittens, a waist zipper, deep hood and 3/4 length leg section to prevent bunching.
2. Onward Jacket
Bloom | $279.99
The Onward Jacket is subdued in appearance but abundant in technicality. It features a 20K storm rating making it waterproof, windproof and breathable—great for days touring in the backcountry or just lapping the park. Additional features include a powder skirt, over-sized interior pockets and underarm ventilation.
3. Nimbus Shell Jacket
Under Armour | $599.99
The foundation of this kit is the water-resistant, insulated Infra-red Micro midlayer. Its thermo-conductive inner layer reflects the user’s own body heat for added warmth. Pair it with the waterproof and windproof, three-layer UA Nimbus shell and bib. The Gore-Tex construction, fully taped seams and strategically placed venting in the chest/inner thighs ensure you’re fully equipped for your next duel with harsh winter weather. To top it off, a plethora of pockets (five in the jacket and five in the pant) provide ample storage for snacks, keys, phone, wallet and any other personal essentials.￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
4. Women’s Cooler 2 Jacket
Picture Clothing | $270.00
In keeping with Picture’s MO, half of the Cooler 2 jacket is made from recycled fabrics. And if the green story isn’t enough to sell you, maybe the taped seams, zipped vents, powder skirt and other technical features will. The icing on the cake? The styling is ideal for the fashion forward female. Say that three times fast.
4. Women’s Cooler 2 Pant
Picture Clothing | $200.00
An excellent complement to the Cooler 2 jacket, the Cooler pant keeps the style extended down to your toes. And to make sure that style stays dry on the hill, an integrated, extended powderblocker at the waist will keep out any rogue snow when you’re in the white room.
