Some of you out there will have seen the scoop when we posted our ISPO reports back in February, others will have read all about it in our Product Guide, but for those who still remain in the dark allow us to illuminate you. This season, Bataleon are also producing outerwear and it is looking grand.
Applying the same ethos they have with snowboard making to outerwear, Bataleon looked at technical solutions to material problems. “We took three things that we didn’t like about snowboard jackets and fixed them,” says Bataleon’s Ian Thrashmore. “Tweaking the hood and collar, articulation and zips in the process. Technicality was always going to be central.”
Every jacket and pant will do the business whatever the weather thanks to 10K waterproofness/breathability, and they’re offering two compete outfits for year 1, each with different tailoring: one is tailored in a generally fitted style and the other features in a more relaxed cut but you can, of course, mix and match between them to get your personal style dialled.
Whether you are into the baggy or fitted look, prefer cargo or jean style pants, like a classic or longer jacket, Bataleon can sort you out. Check the outerwear section on Bataleon’s site for more information.
