Protest outerwear have been designing gear to give you more time on the mountain since 1993. The Dutch company was started by a group of snowboarders who decided to ignore the fact that their country was flat and focus on making it easier to do the things they loved.
...And that is exactly what you need. Their passion has driven the brand for 21 years - that and a huge range of product for beginners and veteran riders alike. Protest consistently offer up a tonne of new designs with a very reasonable price range.
If you were watching the women's Olympic halfpipe recently you might well have seen Ursina Haller, Ruben Verges and Mirabelle Thovex, three of their riders dropping in the halfpipe. But also be sure to check out their Jokers series, Rock a Rail competition and From Here to There series if you want to see what these guys are really about.
In the meantime, check out what they've got for this season in the outerwear department. It looks like they've really run with the whole pattern print/details vibe, as well as carrying their usual selection of alternative down jacket options.
Anyway, have a peek and see what you think:
[part title="Red/Blue Men's Camo Jacket"]
Protest take on the classic camo with a twist - red, blue and grey with contrast grey pockets and a fur lined hood, toasty.
Simple grey jacket with copper contrast buttons and leather protest patch on the arm - tidy.
[part title="Ladies Flower Print Jacket"]
Woah! Check this one out with its full on floral print - contrast dark sleeves keep it grounded and that oversized furry hood looks damn comfortable.
[part title="Grey Nordic Print Jacket"]
Keeping it traditional with this classic bit of Nordic print. Leather toggles are a nice bit of added detail on this.
Contrast zips and lining give this a bit of extra character. A two tone heater to keep you nice and warm.
Keeping with the fur hood option - this stripy number definitely stands out!
[part title="Grey Jacket With Pattern Sleeves"]
Mixing it up without going completely over the top - these patterned sleeves are a nice addition to a grey jacket.
Classic technical jacket in yellow - moody dummy sold separately...
[part title="Contrast Pattern Jacket"]
[part title="Aztec Pattern Grey Green Jacket"]
Extra detail there with the patterns and plenty of external pockets for your stash.
[part title="Green Down Jacket"]
Nice longer cut on this one with a fur hood, and well padded out for warmth.
