Embrace the Cold: The Dynafit Winter Line

Whether you’re a serious backcountry skier, or spend even a few weekends of the winter in a mountain town, you’re probably aware of the typical outdoors “uniform” that has cropped up over the last few decades. Skiers, boarders, and climbers congregate around a small contingent of serious winter brands. However, this leads many pieces of purpose built outerwear to look outlandish when seen anywhere but the ski slopes. This year however, famed Austrian brand Dynafit has redesigned and relaunched their winter apparel line, and it is the new standard for performance and style.

Born on the ski slopes in the 1950s, Dynafit ski boots were the first to incorporate buckles for stability. From racing boots sported by greats like Franz Klammer, to the advent of the Dynafit “tech” bindings – and later the venerated TLT line – Dynafit products are synonymous with innovation and perfection in the ski world. Now, their apparel line is carving out a niche for itself among a large field of top shelf products.

New for this year, the all new Beast Jacket and Pants are the pinnacle of Dynafit’s winter line up. Featuring Goretex Active, a 3-layer, waterproof and breathable membrane, the Beasts hold up to any and all conditions on the mountain (just ask their expedition crew from this year’s groundbreaking ski movie, From The Road, if you don’t believe us). With a removable snow skirt, full seam taping and heat vents, and a helmet compatible hood, the Beast ensemble is truly the perfect set for serious winter adventure.

If you’re looking for something a little more urban friendly (we don’t recommend walking around the East Village in a Goretex ski suit), check out the redesigned Borax 2.0 Jacket. The Primaloft Gold insulation has a better warmth-to-weight ration than anything we’ve tested, and when combined with the ultra-breathable Pertex Quantum outer fabric, it is nearly flawless. It’s sleek, modern styling makes it the perfect insulation piece whether you’re braving the elements on a winter climb, or simply taking a lap around the park with your favorite mutt.

Regardless of you winter endeavors, Dynafit’s line of redesigned apparel sets a new standard in both functionality and style that is unparalleled on or off the mountain. It’s time to ditch the ten-year-old ski jacket you wear when it starts dumping snow, and upgrade to the best.
