2020 Vision Snowboard Gear Preview: Dakine Essentials for Next Season
Durable, functional, stylish? What more could you want?
It's time to check out tomorrow's gear today with Snowboarders 2020 Vision New Product Preview. Snowboarder has worked with key snowboarding manufacturers to highlight some of the must see boots, bindings, boards, outerwear, goggles and accessories arriving in stores next fall. Up next, Dakine!
When it comes to creating durable, functional and stylish winterwear, Dakine does it on another level. They're well-versed in creating outerwear that can withstand all elements and their design and R&D exemplifies that. Such is the case with their new Gearhart Gore-Tex 3L jacket. The shell is comprised of a Gore-Tex 3L plain weave while the liner inside is composed of a Gore C-Knit backer, meaning it'll both keep you warm and breathe while riding, hiking or standing in the cold. It also features a 2-way adjustable hood, a 2-way center front zipper, handwarmer pockets, a mesh goggle pocket and an attached powder skirt, making this one of the sickest coats on the market for the right price.
Womens Beretta Bib
Bibs are back, and in a big way, and Dakine's women's Beretta Gore-Tex 3L bib pant is the cream of the crop when it comes to fit, form and function. Featuring Gore-Tex 3L technology, the kit is water tight while also being insanely breathable. It's also got Gore-Tex fully taped seams, which is something that not many outerwear manufacturers can claim. For ease of entry, the Beretta's got 2-way side zip access and on the bottom it's got a Scuff Guard with reinforced hems so you won't be touting around tattered rags at the end of the winter when your pant bottoms fray out. It's got a classic look with all the right essentials to keep you warm and dry this winter.
Reverb Infinium GTX Mid Layer
Layering is essential for a day well spent on the slopes. After all, you're paying all that money for a lift ticket or a season pass, so the more you layer correctly, the more you're getting out of your hard-earned cash. That's where Dakine's new Reverb Infinium GTX Mid Layer Jacket comes in. Toss this bad boy underneath a shell and you'll be toasty warm all day long. With Allied Down Silver 650 Fill Power inside this insulated coat, it holds heat in while allowing moisture to escape so you won't be damp after a long run and freezing on the lift ride back up to the top and Gore-Tex Infinium 2L technology ensures that if the elements are harsher than the terrain that you won't get wet on the outside. Be smart, layer up, and look into the Reverb Infinium GTX. You won't regret it.
Kazu Team Mission 25L Pack & Team Excursion Gore-Tex Glove
Kazuhiro Kokubo is coming off of the winter of a lifetime in which his film, Kamikazu took home nearly every award in snowboarding, as did Kazu himself. The dude spends a lot of time hiking around the hills of his home in Hokkaido, Japan, so he knows a thing or two about backcountry travel and how essential it is to keep your hands warm and to bring everything you need for a day off-piste with you. That's why he worked tirelessly with the designers and developers at Dakine to create the Team Mission 25L pack and the Team Excursion Gore-Tex Glove. The Gore-Tex glove keeps your hands oven-warm and bone dry for long hikes or a full day on the mountain and his 25-liter pack provides everything you need storage-wise to ensure that if you're heading out of bounds, that you can bring all of your essentials with you, like food, water, beacon, shovel, probe. Don't take it from us, take it from Kazu himself. If it suits him, we're positive that you will love this combo.
