IMG_0718

We continue to put our 2017/18 winter wear on display so today we’re featuring the Swix Romsdal men’s jacket,  Occassionally the manufacturer’s site does such a good job explaining their product that we cheat a bit and just do a copy and paste job from their site to ours. This is one of those times.

Read their full description of the Romsdal below, or come down to the shop to check it out for yourself – we have most sizes in stock at the time of this posting, selling for $210 each plus taxes.

The Swix Romsdal men’s compressible down jacket is ideal for any outdoor activities, from a casual stroll around town to staying warm on your skis prerace (Editors note: Or for FatBiking). The 400g down and feather insulation offers lightweight loft, while the durable ripstop fabric uses a DWR finish for water repellency. The zippered hand pockets and internal stash pocket provide plenty of storage for small items like phones and keys, and the adjustable shock cord hood and elastic hem and cuffs keep you warm and toasty even when the weather gets wild. Plus, the Swix men’s Romsdal hooded jacket is easily packable—grab it out of your waist pack while you’re waiting around for your friends to catch up to you back at the touring center.

Bergen’s of Norway Winter Wear

For the last few years we’ve been pleased to offer our customers a good selection of Bergen’s of Norway winter wear.  At the end of last season we feared we’d no longer be able to stock them because they were suddenly without a Canadian distributor, but we’re pleased that they have a new distributor in Canada and we can continue to offer their great product.

We don’t stock everything they offer but we try to bring in a good selection of shells, light jacket, parkas, etc., many of which are technical and specifically suited to the skiing and winter cycling our customers enjoy, while other product is suitable for ‘everyday’ wear.

In the days and weeks to come we’ll feature a few specific items from Bergen’s on this site. If you don’t want to wait until then come down to the shop anytime to see what’s in stock.  We’re putting more on our racks every day.
