New Gear- La Sportiva Clothing

Many folks are familiar with La Sportiva as a leading manufacturer of trail running shoes, climbing shoes, and technical mountaineering/ice climbing boots.  Known as a world leader in the climbing shoes and technical mountain boots market, Sportiva now makes its official entrance into the technical outdoor apparel market.  In 2011 La Sportiva went all in with a launch of a sick ski line, and now it only makes sense that for this upcoming season they would expand and start offering a technical outerwear clothing line!  Based on their past performance on quality and innovative designs…we can’t wait to get our hands on some of these pieces!

The collection of softwear is dedicated to ski mountaineering race, alpine touring and free-ride skiing. La Sportiva ski mountaineering products will be available in specialist stores by the beginning of the 2012/2013 winter season.

La Sportiva’s winter apparel collection has been carefully designed by a team of mountain specialists in the R&D department and comprises hard-shell, soft-shell, thermal layers, mid layers and base layers divided into well defined lines.

The Upper Peninsula is famous for it’s fresh snow and secret backcountry stashes and we can’t wait to field test some of the clothing and let you in on the the goods!  (the clothing not the backcountry stashes!)
