SIA Booth #1803

Aspen, CO (December 21, 2015) — For the 2016-17 season, renowned snow sports apparel outfitter Obermeyer infuses performance with street style, introducing design-forward fabrics and cross-seasonal functionality within each of its collections. With an emphasis on versatility and an unsurpassed fit, Obermeyer ensures superior waterproof-breathable performance through innovative construction techniques.

Each element of the new Obermeyer collection is carefully crafted to create the ultimate synergy between function and design. In performance, Obermeyer innovates with a new “chimney” system of breathability, consisting of strategically-placed 3-D foam mesh lining along the center back (our #2 sweat spot) and top-of-the-line fabrics like a proprietary HydroBlock®-equipped stretch softshell and featuring the highest in RDS fill power goose down insulation. Obermeyer also introduces a proprietary HydroBlock® Elite fabric, offering a 30,000mm/30,000g waterproof-breathable rating for ultimate protection and comfort. In style, the brand introduces a men’s Resort Collection and expands upon its existing women’s Resort Collection, blending functional on-mountain performance with town-friendly wearability to represent redefined versatility. Each product within the new Resort Collections is defined by unique, textural fabric details and fitted silhouettes for those that value fashion, but still look for elite performance.

In Kids and Teen’s outerwear, Obermeyer displays its dedication to quality, performance and comfort with new styles featuring technical cross-functional fabrics. With a minimum of 10,000mm/10,000g waterproof-breathable ratings for Kids and ratings of up to 15K with stretch fabrics for Teens, the brand continues to ensure their youth collections receive the same attention and thought seen in the Adults collection. Obermeyer’s well-known I-Grow Extended Wear System carries over and is featured throughout the entire Kids collection, extending the life of the garment for multiple seasons.

Among the new 2016-2017 Adult, Kids and Teen collections, Obermeyer showcases its commitment to technical performance and growth in innovative style and design.
