Hood River, OR (December 30, 2013) — Dakine’s new winter 2015 collection is designed to take you from the deep snow of the backcountry to vibrant urban landscapes. Each style is thoughtfully engineered with a fusion of essential features, proven quality and uncompromising performance. Highlights include the big mountain collection of snow packs, outerwear and gloves; the DLX travel series for men and women created with maximum accessibility and function in mind; an expansion of the heritage line of packs and bags for men with added versatility; and the new women’s Cascade collection of bags featuring unique designs with elevated simplicity.
“Each season Dakine strives to build a collection that reflects our commitment to quality and the new winter line not only accomplishes this mission, it also represents our renewed commitment to push the envelope with a laser-like focus on functional versatility,” said Chico Bukovansky, Dakine’s Vice President of Sales and Merchandising. “The entire winter line features a range of updated styles, expanded offerings and new products that are a direct result of our recent design team expansion.”
The winter line of performance snow packs, outerwear and gloves are built for big mountain and backcountry excursions. From avalanche safety packs for added peace of mind to the newly updated BC Vest for a minimalist approach to backcountry performance, the snow collection features a bold range of colors, technical features and premium materials including Gore-Tex and PrimaLoft ONE insulation.
