When going on a trip to the mountains you should look to pack gear that is versatile enough to be worn both on the slopes and in the lodge. Doing so will ensure you’re not packing multiple outfits for one day, giving yourself lighter luggage — you should be able to transition to après without missing a beat.
This sentiment is Aztech Mountain’s entire reason for being. It specializes in creating cross-functional, technically advanced clothing that’s ready for any adventure. And with Olympic gold medalist Bode Miller as its Chief Innovation Officer, Aztech Mountain certainly knows the needs of these sorts of garments. We’ve selected four of Aztech Mountain’s more unique pieces to pack in your bag for any trip to the mountains this winter.
Capitol Peak Insulated Jacket
A true marker of a good winter jacket is having a high warmth-to-weight ratio. The Capitol Peak Insulated Jacket achieves this by using lightweight Primaloft Gold insulation. That’s paired with a Toray Dermizax EV four-way stretch nylon for comfort and mobility while on the slopes. Functional features like a removable hood and powder skirt ensure the Capitol Peak Insulated Jacket can perform on-mountain and look good off-mountain, too.
Dale of Aspen Sweater Jacket
Nothing says multi-faceted like blending a down jacket with a knit merino wool sweater. That’s exactly what the Dale of Aspen Sweater Jacket does. The chest is based upon Aztech Mountain’s Nuke Suit down jacket while the sleeves and back are constructed from its water-repellant Milano knit merino wool sweater. This elegant and purposeful sweater jacket is a versatile garment that can work in every environment.
Starwood Down Blazer
Unless you’re James Bond, you’ve probably never worn a blazer like this. The technical down blazer is constructed using a thermo-welded baffling and has down-filled Schoeller C-Change wool for insulating and waterproof warmth. If that wasn’t enough, it includes a removable full-zip, water-repellant merino wool sweater insert. It’s the technical blazer for colder nights out you never even knew you needed — or one to ski in if your alias is 007.
Bear Paw Full Milano Jacket
The Bear Paw Full Milano Jacket can operate as a jacket on warmer winter days and as a cozy mid-layer on the colder ones. It’s a heavyweight, water-repellant merino wool jacket that features stretch nylon quilted details and sleeve accents for heightened mobility. The precision fit helps make the Bear Paw a versatile layer that’s able to go with you anywhere.
