Airblaster, the coolest accessory brand on the snow planet was created just about a decade ago by Travis Parker, Jesse Grandkoski and Paul Miller. Now they are releasing a very limited yet very core outerwear line: Sasquatch.
As a moto, the 3 friends started Airblaster saying ‘why not?’ ‘We can do everything we want’. Well it looks like the thing they wanted to do this season is to come up with a cool, condense outerwear line, that means something to them, and probably to you too once you’ve seen it all.
As we said, Sasquatch outerwear will be very limited, hand numbered so you know how rare your gear is, like this:
Then technically, the compact line has everything you would expect from a jacket or pants that are made by riders for riders. For example on this Yeti jacket, which is kind of the main, longer fit snow jacket this season, these are the specs: 20K mm waterproofing, 20K g/m2 breathability, Fully Seam Taped, Tailored Long Fit, Limited quantities, hand numbered, Free-standing collar – easy on/off hood, YKK AquaGuard® exposed zippers and last but not least, it’s made with Upcycled fabric. That means that everything was conceived with an eco-friendly inspiration, using a maximum of premium upcycled materials and upgraded trims.
In short, you’ve got technicality, style, durability, respect of the environment and rarety all in one outerwear. So check it out in a core store near you this winter, and if you’re lucky you’ll manage to spot one.
And from the guys at Airblaster: “Born in the misty and notoriously dank Cascades of the Pacific Northwest, Sasquatch is a limited line of outerwear from Airblaster. Designed and built to stand up to the worst storms mother nature can blow your way, Sasquatch outerwear is fully seam taped and constructed with the best waterproof breathable fabrics on the planet. Despite the abundance of technical function, the design aesthetic is of clean and classic mountain heritage. Produced in extremely small quantities from limited lots of upcycled fabrics, then hand numbered, Sasquatch is built especially for the discerning mountain traveler.”
