INVENTING A NEW CLASS OF ALPINE STANDARD FOREVERWEAR – Foehn’s flagship Salem Dyneema® Down Parka iswarranted to last and perform for life, while meeting stringent Alpine Standard for mountain survival wear. Indestructible is a fact, not a claim, for the outer layer of Dyneema® fabric, originally developed for ocean racing boats’ sails. The wearer is wrapped in warmth by insulation of 800 fill power natural down, the world’s best lightweight fill for super-cold survival conditions. Though fully featured with pockets inside and out and concealed adjustments for warmth and fit, the overwhelming first impression of this oversize parka is its feather weight. In this application, Dyneema® fabric has a friendly, supple feel, and captivating texture. Minimalist silhouette shows Foehn style (MSRP $999.95 USD).
INTRODUCING WORLD’S BEST COLD WEATHER MULTI-AEROBIC PERFORMANCE WEAR – This started out as the designer’s self-challenge to create the world’s best winter running top and bottom, while utilizing a first-time application of stretch Japanese nylon over Polartec® Power Stretch Pro Fleece, second-to-none for athletics and warm-fuzzy comfort. Missions accomplished, in high tech and minimal high style in men’s and women’s Magna Polartec® Power Stretch Pro Fleece Hoody (MSRP $249.95 USD) and Pants (MSRP $199.95 USD). Breakthrough fabric tech puts both far ahead of the pack for runners. That means they win big, too, in Nordic skiing, climbing, pretty much anything strenuous.
BEST-SELLING BRISE MULTISPORT PANT EXPANDS LINE, REVOLUTIONIZES TRAD SLACKS – Hip, of-the-moment, flattering redos of men’s chinos and cargo pants give new life – as for-real sports performance wear – to two all-time favorite styles. The secret’s all in durable 100 percent polyester stretch woven fabric sourced from Swiss techmeister Schoeller®, same as Foehn’s runaway top selling Brise Schoeller® Pant (MSRP $159.95 USD). Here it’s all about performance that doesn’t put on a show. Wearers can hike, boulder, climb in either slacks and look good before, during, and after. The same stretch that makes for unrestrained movement outdoors, snaps the fabric back into shape. Classic Brise Schoeller® Chinos(MSRP $139.95 USD) dress up and dress down equally well. Brise Schoeller® Cargo Pants (MSRP $169.95 USD) are copiously pocketed with sleek contemporary style.
