The Andean is rated at 20K waterproof and 20K breathability made to Japanese standard. It’s top of the range and will keep you dry under heavy rain for a long time, which is basically all day.
Also worth noting the garment is seam sealed. You can have the best fabric available, but as soon as you start punching holes in this to sew it altogether water will get through. We have sorted this by seam sealing the whole jacket. You would have to cut it open if you don’t believe us, but no need for that, trust us. We got you covered.
We have put in some nylon cuffs with thumb holes. Ninja style to keep you warm on the mountain.
The zippers are YKK AquaGuard®. Look closer at these, and you will notice these will withstand a lot of rain before the water passes through.
We have also included protection into the arms. It’s about time someone decided to place this in. Once you get off the beginners runs, and onto the black runs, we come full circle and need protection. Snow might be soft at times, but trees and rocks are unforgiving. We have incorporated removable protection into every jacket to be there when you fall. If you don’t want it there on the day, you can take it out.
Our Andean is the top of the range. It was named after the Andean condor as the highest flying bird in the world and is regarded as a symbol of power. Just like this jacket, it will help you soar to new heights as these birds love to glide in the wind. Fly high frothers.
In all our jackets, we included removable protection into the elbows. Its placed into a pouch, and you can add and remove as much as you like
When you have progressed from a beginner, and you have learned how to fall, you are not putting your wrist out to break the fall. When falling you need to brace yourself and the part that is generally going to take the brunt of the falls are your elbows. We have designed the padding to move into place when you fall and to be better positioned to take the hit.
Our search for the right materials lead us to New Zealand, where the toughest game in the world is played. Rugby. The only protection they use is on their head. Working with the same technology, we have produced lightweight and durable padding, but modified it to perforn under the coldest of conditions. It does get cold on a Rugby field, but we have tested this under temperatures of -30ºC/-22 ºF, and our protection will function as normal. To evolve in snowsports, you need to take the falls. We have designed our garments for the person who wants to go to that next level.
