Provisions 020: Products we are stoked on this week
This week in Provisions we are changing it up again with a large variety of products, both snowboard related and otherwise. We have brand new protective gear that is so comfortable that you won’t even know you are wearing it, goggles with lenses that don’t need to be changed, and even late season release boots from Nitro that you definitely don’t want to sleep on. As always, if you don’t see what you are looking for here, make sure to check out The 2017 Product Collection as well as The 2017 Interactive Brand Guides, and check back next week for a new release of Provisions.
Days Off Desmond Crew
Who doesn’t like a good day off? The crew at Days Off, (led by former Nike Sportswear designer Brett Page and industry vet Evan Pinstein,) certainly do. Based off of the adage, “Do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life,” Days Off has introduced a brand new line of athletic and lounge wear with uncompromising style. The pieces are clean, bold, and made from premium materials that guarantee a great long-lasting fit.
Patagonia 850 Down Sleeping Bag
After 45 years in the making, the Patagonia Sleeping Bag is finally on the market. Back when Patagonia was first founded, Yvon Chouinard built himself a down sleeping bag that never made it all the way to production. Now, 45 years later, Patagonia has taken years of R&D as well as recent technology, and returned to the drawing board to make the first sleeping bag that will be offered on the market. The 850 Down Sleeping Bag comes in a 30°F tested model, a 19°F tested model, as well as a Hybrid model.
Nitro El Mejor TLS
Who ever said that responsive boots had to be stiff and uncomfortable? This new mid-winter release boot from Nitro is here to change the game as the most comfortable performance boot on the market. By utilizing the new Cloud 10 liner, Air Dampening tech, and The Flex Link design tech, the El Mejor from Nitro is able to retain the structure, responsiveness, and durability needed to tackle Alaskan lines, all while remaining one of the most comfortable boots on the market.
Slytech Backpro XT Naked
Slytech back protectors are here to revolutionize mountain safety. The crew at Slytech have been working tirelessly to produce a back protector that is not only un-noticeable and won’t inhibit riding, but retains all of the protective qualities as traditional models, and the day is finally here. The new Backpro XT Naked is Slytech’s lightest and most malleable back protector, allowing athletes to protect their spine without any of the discomfort or irritability traditionally associated with pads and protective gear.
Oakley Prizm Line Miner
When it comes to lens technology, no one does it quite like Oakley. The new Oakley Prizm lenses take a new approach to lens manufacturing, and instead of limiting the quantity of light that passes through, Prizm lenses limit the color waves which are able to pass through. This new approach allows Prizm lenses to enhance contrast and improve on-hill vision significantly. Not only that, but because Prizm limits color ranges instead of light levels, a single lens works for a much larger variety of light conditions. The Line Miner doesn’t offer any of the recent quick lens change technology found on the market, but frankly we have found that it really doesn’t need it.
