Snowboard and action sports apparel labels-the Canadian- Ripzone™ and Powder Room™---are new to us-so -all looks fresh-but apparently there's a re-design of the company branding for this year's efforts.
First up were jackets from the they, high performing Triology™ Collection using Outlast® technology for moisture management/temperature controlling par excellence...meaning ability to store excess heat and 'return it' when the wearer needs it-like when sitting on a freezing cold chair lift that's stalled cause someone was updating their FB page instead of getting off the lift.

Other collections-the X5™ inspired by team riders---insulated using Primaloft® Eco insulation (made form re-cycled plastic)-with Canadian heritage references...and the lifestyle, streetwear  flavored Verso™ line.

TRANSPACK ski and snowboard packs-make hauling gear easy.

We use a version of the boot/helmet/gear bag with its Isosceles Storage System™ as a transition satchel for all our triathlon gear. The separate compartments, self repairing zippers, water resistant durable material, adjustable industrial tough web straps...and how it balances the weight of it all-with that shape... makes it ideal for the swim-bike-run necessities. Plus smaller inner zip compartments are good for personal stuff.

Lately, we have to dump it all into clear plastic bags and go through a security check at transition entrance. Here's hoping Transpack makes a clear one soon.
