Montreal, Canada (September 26, 2013) – O’Neill, the original surf, snow and youth lifestyle brand for more than 60 years, is happy to welcome back winter and unveil its 2013-14 winter collection in stores for the snow season, featuring styles that top athletes such as Jeremy Jones, Seb Toots, David Wise, Aspen Spora, Iris Lazz, Max Parrot, Brody Leven and Sandy Boville will be wearing on and off mountains around the world.

Following a busy spring and summer for Team O’Neill athletes and designers, the O’Neill 2013-14 winter gear is ready to dominate the powder of North America with the Explore, Freedom and Adventure series. The newest collection includes a wider range of jackets, pants, fleece, beanies and more for men, women and kids, including a selection of gloves and packs, available in the O’Neill winter lineup for the first time.

New color patterns, fits (Regular, Long, Mountaineering, Parka) and a unique mix of materials, including denim, canvas, wool and fur offer a more diverse look throughout the collection. Legendary Tahoe snowboarder Jeremy Jones returns with two signature jackets and two pants, while Sochi 2014 gold medal hopefuls Seb Toots and David Wise will feature their own signature gear.

“Our athletes and designers came together to create the best collection yet, a really cool combination of outerwear that fits and performs impeccably throughout the season,” said O’Neill’s Jimmy Adams. “We wanted to incorporate more styles that reflect the diversity of our athlete team and fashionable looks that can transition seamlessly from slopes to streets. The Adventure Series is a great example of how
we support outdoor living and discovery beyond the mountains.”

Highlights from the O’Neill 2013-14 apparel line include:

Jeremy Jones collection –2 and 3-layer shells that Jeremy helped design, and will wear in upcoming shoots for his next film, ‘Higher,’ in Nepal, Alaska and other global locations.

His 2L shell was created in collaboration with artist Mike Ennen and features black-and-white mountain designs.
