The Stretch Puffy, SYNC’s category busting insulated puffy jacket brings to the hill what the ski world needs a little bit more of these days. High performance with a little bit of laid back style. It’s a head turner of a jacket for the skier that wants a high performance puffy that they can use as a ski jacket, but also use just as a versatile warm puffy for kicking around in and once again it looks good, but that’s never been our goal…. It just kind of happens.
We designed these jackets with a durable, water resistant outer shell that is resistant to tearing on the nail sticking out or random tree branch. We used a synthetic insulation because it keeps warming even when it’s wet and because it keeps the profile lower for when we are moving through our turns. Finally we added some reinforcement in high wear areas for when we are carrying skis on our shoulders and/or boot bags.
The material we use on this jacket is the same that vehicle airbags are made of. So it’s puncture resistant and extremely waterproof before we even apply the DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating. We use a premium dye on the fabric to it that lasts 10x longer under UV testing than the typical die consciously overbuilding the product so it lasts longer because once your fabric fades, it is no longer performing.
We wear these jackets a lot. Before and after training, during training, on dog walks, walking through the village our way out to dinner, going to hockey practice, and on those bluebird days on the ski hill when comfort and beating your buddies to the bottom is the primary job at hand. We use these when we’re riding chairlifts and skiing fast, so durability, warmth, and an athletic fit combined with stretch that lets us move, that let’s us lay way over as we rail into the turn is was the first criteria, and then versatility was number two.
High performance design based on input from the hardest working athletes, coupled with the best materials we can find. It’s our secret recipe for quality. We work with the leading textile manufacturers and bring their innovations to our athletes and with their input and feedback develop apparel solutions that enable them to focus less on what they are wearing and more on what they are doing. There are no shortcuts to performing on race day, you have to do the work, and we believe the same about the apparel we make.
