ADIDAS OUTDOOR FALL 2014 Outerwear Jackets/Vests


TERREX CLIMAHEAT ICE JACKET-top of the line for warmth/function with Primaloft® Gold Insulation that is water replant, fluorocarbon-free down blended with synthetic Primaloft® ultra-fine fibers=ultimate warmth during dry weather and moisture blocking enabled for wet conditions, lined with 37.5 (Cocona)…we like the side stretch panels (Formotion®)for fit when on the go and an adjustable hood, packs down, differential baffle construction for diff. body zones, reflective iconic 3 stripes, inner sleeve cuff, chest zip pocket $350-pictured guy version grey heather/semi solar green
check it out-  serious insulation---baffling inside-could prob. double as half a sleeping pad.


IMO---launching an outdoor performance wear collection-within a 50,000+ employee company-  known for its ORIGINALS, hip kicks + fashion-y collabs (Stella McCartney, Jeremy Scott, Raf Simons, Y-3), and serious sports' lines and acquisitions (Reebok, TaylorMade Golf)  …that is seriously taken by extreme outdoor adventurers but still manages to be true to is DNA---quite the challenge.

Terrex Climaheat Ice jacket-women's $350-orange/pearl grey

Signature design elements (3 stripes), sharp modern use of colors/plaid prints ---are the eye-candy part-but the products-and the marketing campaign that goes with it…have to be great. Adidas smartly takes top materials sourced from other companies-(Primaloft® performance blends, 37.5 (Cocona) moisture management,  and Gore-Tex®)-mixed in with in-house know-how (Formotion™-3D construction=great fit/ease of movement, OmniHeat)--- for Fall 2014 outerwear worthy of summits afar and nearby streets.
