Goldwin makes some stellar alpine outerwear that can go from summit to city with ease. Its cutting edge technical wear has been the choice of boundary-pushing athletes since it provided the national uniforms for Japan’s 1964 Olympic team. In the process of making garments that are up to snuff for such demanding athletes, Goldwin learned a thing or two about crafting the perfect piece of technical wear — that doesn’t sacrifice on style. The Hooded Spur Light Pullover looks dead simple, but of course, it’s chock-full of splendid bits of design that any gear junky or sartorial aficionado would find enticing. We took a look to highlight a few of our favorite parts.
1. Welded Tight: The Hooded Spur Light Pullover uses a high-tech welding method on the panels to provide flat and almost invisible seams — no small feat. The front zippers are also strategically placed to keep away from your chin.
2. Patterned for Success: Goldwin’s original pattern is inspired by the brand’s symbolic ski kits, creating not only a simple and technical design but also a three-dimensional structure for mobility with plenty of function. And when it’s not in use, it breaks down into a stowaway bag for easy toting.
3. Stretch it Out: The fabric of the Hooded Spur Light Pullover is highly stretchable and quick drying to enhance the garment’s functionality and outdoor versatility, making it perfect for a good mid-layer.
