The outdoors world has its superstars but it's nothing like the in world of sports…where name droppers---with serious recognition and athletic creds- are able to move merchandise off the shelves, based on their names alone.
Companies making gear for cold weather pursuits-backcountry, hiking, trekking---need to rely on their high integrity, reputation, and functionality of their apparel offerings--- with proven reliability- and backed by warranties. That way 'smaller' brands without marketing muscle…can thrive.
Salomon is one of those labels that stand for quality and innovation. It is on the backs of outdoors types around the world-because the apparel ( and footwear -a later post) are made to move, protect and perform…with top tier textiles and design features…that are durable. Has to be---!
