For the 2010/10 season, Outdoor Research has come out with a Sidecountry clothing line. This line of clothing was designed more specifically for mechanized skiing (lift, cat, heli). Complete with all the things you look for in a regular ski jacket, but still with the great features and infinite guarantee you have come to expect from Outdoor Research.
Along with the already awesome features like waterproof breath-ability and bombproof construction, the sidecountry line includes features like: powder skirts, places to attach/store your season's pass and lift tickets, strategically placed insulation, Recco, and many other features.
The crew at catskiing.ca is using this new gear this year, and we can't wait to get it out in the snow. Just from looking at it and trying it on, you can tell that a lot of thought went into making this gear. Also, OR is the type of company that wants to know what YOU think of the gear. Once you have something, you can sign up to be a product development Lab Rat and give your opinion of the gear. They take your thoughts into account when developing the next generation of gear.
