Snow sports apparel: balancing comfort, protection and style
published in Issue 54, March 2016
Snow sports apparel is critical to ensuring that the wearer remains warm and dry in the cold and wet conditions often encountered on mountainous terrain. Significant developments have been made in recent years to ensure that waterproof, windproof and breathable snow sports apparel products are widely available. As such, the properties of breathability, water repellency and wind repellency are now considered to be basic requirements of snow sports apparel. However, consumers are also demanding snow sports apparel which is stylish, is suitable for day-to-day wear, incorporates more advanced performance properties such as light weight and stretch and is environmentally sustainable. Such demands have presented new challenges to manufacturers of snow sports apparel and their suppliers. As a result, significant developments have been made in new fibre technologies, new fabric technologies and new insulation materials. This report provides a wealth of information on various types of snow sports apparel including accessories, base layer garments, middle layer garments and outerwear garments and their style and performance characteristics. Also, the report discusses the latest trends and product developments in snow sports apparel. Furthermore, the report provides data relating to the development of snow sports, participation in snow sports, and the snow sports market.
