Backcountry Magazine Dishes Out Honors Ahead of 2020-21 Winter Season
BOULDER, CO (September 2020) – Dynafit, a global leader in innovation in competitive ski mountaineering, will head into the new 2020-21 winter season celebrating a pair of awards from Backcountry Magazine for the company’s acclaimed Beast 108 ski line and it’s Women’s TLT Light Insulator Jacket.
Backcountry Magazine bestowed an Editor’s Choice award on the Beast 108, a free touring ski made specifically for powder specialists and focused on downhill performance. Featuring full ABS sidewalls and an ash wood core to ensure edge grip and stability plus torsional rigidity, the Beast 108 performs well as a touring ski for middle-distance and long climbs.
“The updated Beast 108 has been improved in all the places needed. A touch of camber and some weight shaved has made this a true backcountry skier’s ski,” Backcountry Magazine’s tester reported. “Good performance on all snow with excellent responsiveness for charging a bit harder for scrubbing speed. Performs well enough on firm snow to choose for spring missions if that’s your preferred width. A touch heavy for some lightweight pursuits.”
The Women’s TLT Light Insulator Jacket also picked up an Editor’s Choice award from Backcountry Magazine, honoring one of the lightest insulating jackets on the market today. The jacket’s DYNASHELL™ Ultralight fabric is wind- and water-resistant, and the synthetic Dynafill insulation resembles the structure of down and offers warmth and packability, as well as the look and feel of down, while being more resistant to moisture.
“The Dynafit TLT Light Insulator is an ultralight and packable layer for cold days touring …“ Backcountry Magazine’s tester reported. “It would make a great layer for anyone looking for something warm and breathable on cold days, and, while I’d prefer it have a hood to make it more versatile, it probably cuts down on enough weight to make the skimo crowd even more stoked.”
Both the Beast 108 and the Women’s TLT Light Insulator Jacket are currently available online from Dynafit.
