As we all know, ahead of any new winter season, it important to tune your gear for optimal performance. For many, this means adjusting the settings of our bindings and sharpening our edges. Like your skis or board, Alps & Meters “Forged Performance” products will also benefit from care and attention to ensure maximum longevity when it comes to protection, durability, and maintenance of your garment's original aesthetic values. 

Within our first alpine sport product collection, the classic, full grain water repellent leather panels of the Men’s Shawl Collar Jacket represent areas that, if treated with consistent care, will last a lifetime of adventures while providing classic protection from the elements. Like your favorite pair of leather boots, belt, or bag, at Alps & Meters we recommend conducting a care session for your jacket 2-4 times a year. Our expert friends at Chamberlain’s Leather Milk offer excellent leather care products. As with any tune up, your choice of technician, their knowledge, and values are key to ensure the delivery of first class quality. Chamberlain’s Leather Milk is a company that appreciates the texture, smell, feel, and presentation of rich leather and seeks to offer a unique set of formulas to nurture those qualities throughout the life of a product. In short, Chamberlain knows A LOT about leather and we hope that you’ll consider their expert knowledge when seeking a “Forged Performance” pre-season tune up in the future.
