Strafe Ozone Jacket
|Availability:||Out of stock|
When picking a simple, reliable, and highly functional ski jacket, it’s easy to get sucked in by the big, familiar brands. But some of the best engineering and smartest technical design is happening far outside these so-called “core” brands. As evidence, we present to you the Strafe Ozone Jacket.
The Strafe Ozone jacket uses 20K waterproof Recon Elite 3L, a three-layer, ultra-stretchable synthetic that’s lighter than Gore-Tex and every bit as weatherproof. Its fully sealed seams and water-resistant YKK zippers will keep you dry all day, while the four-way stretch face fabric has an absurd Martindale durability rating of 200,000+.
You want warmth? How about the folks that design garments for people to wear in space. Strafe borrowed a high-tech aerogel insulation material designed by NASA for the Ozone jacket. The space cowboys get extra backup in the heat-management department from Polartec fleece at the thumbhole cuffs and underarm vent zippers.
In an industry where a lot of classic “core” brands have gone stale and corporate, Strafe is one of the new community-based apparel companies on the block. Founded in 2009 by Aspen-based skiers John and Pete Gaston, Strafe’s overall approach to making ski and snowboard clothes is shaped by the actual, practical needs of real-world winter sports – not the complacent “they’re just buying our logo” mindset of the big boys.
John and Pete fell in love with Highland Bowl in Aspen, where all-day laps require a lift ride and a summit hike up to 12,000 feet to rip down steep, technical powder lines. Everything that Strafe makes is therefore built for maximum waterproofing, breathability, and range of motion, in a distinct style that will make you stand out on the hill.
