Swedish company Haglöfs is bringing back the full ski suit glory days of the 80’s with the new Rando AS Suit. Designed to maximize the benefits of Gore-Tex Active technology, this ski suit is by far Haglöfs lightest, most breathable, waterproof outfit ever, and possibly the coolest looking ski garment available for Fall 2013.
For the 2013 winter season, Haglöfs is introducing a new collection for skiers who want to explore far into the backcountry. All of these products, which are gathered under the Rando family, were developed with a focus on safety and being able to quickly and easily adapt the clothing based on changing weather conditions or whether you are headed up or down the mountain.
One of the big product releases is the Rando AS Suit, the world’s first full ski suit made from 3-layer Gore-Tex Active Shell. The ski suit design is pretty simple but includes all the features you would expect in ski apparel, such as a helmet-compatible, adjustable 3-way hood, a DWR-treated outer fabric surface, and pockets strategically placed so that they are accessible even when carrying a backpack.
The 660g ski suit uses long, reinforced, and waterproof zippers at the armpits and legs for ventilation when you are skinning up. Reinforced shoulders, seat, and thighs add extra durability to high wear areas.
The two way front zipper is hidden for weatherproofing and not to spoil the full ski suit aesthetic. A chest pocket and cargo pocket with extra durable laminated water resistant zippers and one zippered inner pocket give you just enough secure storage space for the essentials you may not keep in your backpack.
Articulated sleeves with shaped elasticated cuffs and thumb loops, articulated knees, internal lower leg gaiters with silicon grip, and reinforced insteps round out the features on this slick looking full ski suit.
The Haglöfs Rando AS Suit comes in one color, aero blue, and will be available starting for men only next winter season.
Let’s hear it for the return of the full ski suit!
