Rippin' Riders Preview: Airwalk Outerwear
Everyone knows, it's not how you look on the mountain, but how you ride.. however, airwalk understands that it doesn't hurt to look fresh while you're riding at your best. This season, airwalk is offering a full range of styles, colors and sizes in its Venture and Global series outerwear lines designed to accommodate men, women and children at all levels of riding performance. Packed with forward thinking features for maximum comfort, protection and convenience, airwalk's 2001 snowboarding outerwear line is designed to promote the riding experience.
"airwalk has stepped up the technical features in both the Venture and Global series for 2001, bringing a consistent, top-of-the line product to market at an incredible value to the consumer," said Diane Avischious, director of apparel sales for TARE7. "We have made a big commitment to broadening the women's and children's lines by introducing several styles in a broad range of sizes and colors with all the performance features of the popular men's line."
airwalk's Global series is packed with performance for the recreational rider. Whether you are out on the mountain, or headed to school, the versatile Global series blends high-performance protection with unmistakable styling for a look with universal appeal.
The kid's line features three jacket styles and two pant styles. Offered in colors and styles to suit aspiring shredders of both the boy and girl persuasion, these styles boast all the standard traits of the adult line, with added safety features including built-in identification badge, whistle and secret pockets for stealth mountain missions.
Our Rippin' Rider Tester is trying out the Rocket jacket and Combat pant. The Rocket jacket features insulated poly fill body, snap off tri panel articulated hood, 1000 mm coated nylon body, fleece chin tab, double welt main zip cover, Velcro and elastic adjustable cuffs, two chest pockets, two external storage pockets, pocket in a pocket for coins or keys, secret internal sleeve pocket, and whistle inside the right hand pocket. The gunmetal, khaki and orange combo is very cool.
The cargo style Combat pants feature 1000mm coated nylon body, high back elastic waist, knee articulation, bottom hem reinforcement, boot hook at inner cuff, lined with 2-way nylon mesh, PVC coated nylon leg gaiter, 2 front diagonal slash pockets, 2 side cargo pockets, and internal fleece lining at knees. The Khaki goes great with the Rocket jacket.
