THE STORY

Ski racing is a sport of elegance and precision and thus, it is no surprise that those elements have also been deeply embedded in the design of racing equipment since the downhill evolution took hold of skiing in the mid-20th century.

As sharp in appearance as the edges on which they carved their turns, ski racers’ form fitting clothes offered low drag, maximum comfort, and the opportunity for a means of stylish, on-mountain self-expression. In the center of this sea of equipment was the Ski Race Sweater which identified an individual as a member of the racing class; those fast, adventurous souls with a spirit drawn to the mountains for the freedom offered by winter sporting traditions.

Fitted and protective, with elements of appropriate padding and ergonomic engineering, ski racing knitwear was the gear of choice for gate crashers whose passion, attitude, and on-snow technique endeared them to mountain towns and alpine sport enthusiasts the world over.

Great, heavy weight, sweater

Wasn’t sure how I was going to like it, but it is great. Heavy sweater (both in weight and as in heavy duty), thumb holes, looks great. I’ve skied with it a few times, great on sunny days, but you can definitely feel the wind. The sizing is definitely on the bigger side: I’m usually on the small/medium line, I got a small it feels like a medium. Will probably get more when other colors come back in stock!

First time customer - ordered Ski Race Knit Sweater with mountain motif

Love the graphic and multiple color choices. For me, the best is the sizing. I’m 6’5” with a 37” sleeve length. The sleeves on this sweater are even longer. It fits perfectly! I was so pleased with this first order that I ordered again - this time for the Ski Race Knit Patrol - another perfect fit!

A bit larger size wise than expected

Great design, but larger than expected. One of the double cuffs on the sleeve is t stitched correctly (actually not attached to the sleeve). Will return and might try again.
