Strafe Recon Pullover
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
For many of the best days on the mountain, a fully insulated jacket is too much. For some of them, even a hardshell is more bulky and warm than you want. And for people who rip the most technical lines at the most athletic pace, a simple softshell is going to be the best outer layer choice quite often in the season.
The Strafe Recon pullover is here for you hardworking range-of-motion enthusiasts. Its breathable 4-way stretch fabric and minimalist design make the Recon a great ultralight option. Strafe retained only the most essential and utilitarian touring features for this simple, high-quality softshell. A pair of zippered pockets provide ample room for your touring skins and other medium-large cargo, a helmet-ready adjustable hood keeps the weather off your neck, and a one-pull drawstring hem makes the perfect fit just a wrist-flick away.
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.
