Rando – introducing the world’s first ski suit in 3-layer Gore-Tex® Active
Perhaps the secret of Randonée lies in the contrast of struggling up the mountain only to later enjoy the ride down. Perhaps it is the science of finding snow that no one else has broken before. Or perhaps just to enjoy the vast landscape. Regardless of the reason, the activity places special demands on the equipment.
For the 2013 winter season Haglöfs is introducing a new extensive collection for skiers who want to explore far away from the lift system and pistes. 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 this year’s big releases is RANDO AS SUIT – the world’s first ski suit in 3-layer Gore-Tex® Active. During its product development stage, Haglöfs focused on taking advantage of the properties of Gore’s Active technology in order to be able to offer the lightest and the most comfortable, waterproof and breathable skiing garment on the market.
RANDO AS SUIT has an unembellished design, but with all of the product features a skier would expect, such as a helmet-compatible, adjustable 3-way hood, a DWR-treated outer surface and pockets strategically placed so that they are accessible even when carrying a backpack. The suit also has long, reinforced and waterproof zippers at the armpits and along the thighs in order to maximize ventilation. RANDO AS SUIT is the lightest enveloped garment with the best breathability that Haglöfs has ever produced. There might not be anything better out there to ski in.
The backpack is a constant companion in the mountains
When outdoor skiers wander away from prepared terrain, their backpack will always accompany them. It carries the avalanche probe, shovel, other safety equipment, reinforcement garments and perhaps some food.
Haglöfs’ new TURA backpack is perfect for people who want to head a bit farther out to ski or snowboard. TURA is a durable, winter skiing backpack in the same, minimalist spirit as Haglöfs’ ski touring backpack, RAND. However, TURA is 40% lighter than its predecessor, thanks to the one-piece construction of the back and shoulder straps. It has an easily accessible front pocket for safety equipment, it is prepared for an integrated hydration system and it is equipped with hole webbing for fastening extra equipment. TURA also offers several different options for carrying skis – yet another feature that demonstrates this backpack’s excellent flexibility.
