1 year ago

Leading mountain sports brand Mountain Hardware have announced the a new parka and the first pair of pants as part of its ‘Stretch Down’ series that uses the super DS structure developed over the last 10 years.

This is the third season since the series was first introduced and the heat retention is improved by adopting a wide baffle and increasing the amount of down encapsulation while maintaining high stretchability, durability and light weight due to the seamless structure. With its modern silhouette, this is seamless down wear that is perfect to wear in both the city or in the mountains.

The new stretch down parka has a wider baffle and a higher loft than the conventional stretch down, meaning it has better heat retention.

On the other hand, the first down pants in the collection have a loose silhouette that can be worn on top of other pants, but the hem has a tapered design. Of course, the Super DS structure is also adopted here, making it excellent in terms of mobility with outstanding elasticity.

The Super DS structure, which is made by weaving fabrics that do not use sewing threads or crimping agents, reduces down slippage and cold spots.

These new items demonstrate outstanding stretchability because there is no sewing involved. It boasts mobility and durability that can handle the harsh climbing conditions of the cold season.

That’s it for the latest items in the Stretch Down series developed by Mountain Hardwear. This season, the pants help keep your lower half warm, which tend to be less cold-proof than expected, have been improved, making this series even more impressive.
