Equal parts ski and style!

The Eider Alagna is the perfect everyday, cool, around town piece that just so happens to be a technical ski jacket! I love how the jacket’s outer Defender Weave material looks more like street wear, but is actually completely waterproof and breathable. On the outside it has a great shape- with interesting detailing & seaming front and back.
On the inside- no area has been left untouched- and it has amazing attention to detail. Eider uses a “Thermal Control System” which puts Thermoceram down the back and around the lower torso. That material reflects heat from the body back into the jacket- in the areas where you tend to lose heat the most. Then in the arms and other high heat/moisture areas there is a lighter insulation so you don’t get to hot. The result is an incredibly comfortable jacket that’s warm without feeling stuffy once you’re moving. The removable hood and powder skirt add to the versatility of the jacket-and the skirt has attachments to hook into your pants (with the benefit of STRETCH at attachment point so you can still move)

My favorite feature of this jacket however is the super soft fleece in the shoulders, collar and hood. It makes so much sense to add those soft fleece touches right where you need them- especially if you’re out and about in town and don’t have a hat!

Equal parts ski and style!
