There’s nothing in the world as exciting as going on a snow holiday. From the moment you start planning your trip, everything from choosing your dates, getting a crew together, booking your ski accommodation and buying your new gear is part of the overall hype leading up to the moment when you’re standing on the slopes.
It’s important to get the right gear to keep you safe. Each and every year there is more modern, technologically advanced gear being launched onto the market to choose from. As well as being safe and performing well however, we sometimes like our kit to be a bit different. Whether it be a crazy print, a new design or just the brightest colour possible, it’s fun to be as sartorially adventurous on your snow holiday as you’re being physically.
This season brands have brought new designs, as well some old styles from the retro trends of your parent’s photo albums. O’Neill’s retro ski collection has the colour blocking stylings of past decades, with the crucial technology of the here and now, while Smith’s flashy neon goggles are hiding some truly astonishing sense changing tech.
Intrigued? We guarantee you’ll be the brightest and boldest person on the slopes after reading this.
O’Neill 88′ Shred Bib Ski Pants
For: ‘The Fashion One’ In The Group
These bib pants from the O’Neill retro ski collection are bang on trend and the kind of stuff our neon ski dreams are made of.
Made from fully recycled materials (good work O’Neill!) they mix bright designs that look like they’ve been dropped straight from their heritage lines, with modern silhouettes and flattering cuts, that bring the whole look up to date, without losing any of its fun impact.
What’s best about these bib pants is that you can finally rock the 80’s dad vibes, without the 80’s performance. With 10k waterproof and 10k breathable material and critically taped seems for Firewall insulation, you might look like you should be enjoying an Aperol in 1988, but the pant’s performance will be 100 per cent circa 2018.
