NWAlpinist Salopette: not just for dudes.

My friend Sue and I headed up to Hood this morning to take advantage of the copious snow pack that still remains. Those of you that live in the NW have probably noted that we've had a dearth of nice sunny days so far this summer. One upside to this unfortunate fact is that there's still skiing to be had. It was a beautiful, crisp morning with incredible, clear views of Mt. Jefferson, the Sisters and Broken Top.

Sue wore her salopette. She's petite, 5'6" (1.67m) with a 30" inseam and the XS fits her perfectly. The through-the-crotch zipper provides a convenient way to use the facilities regardless of what equipment you're packing and the softshell fabric we use is just that, a shell, so there's no insulation to help you overheat once the work begins. Like all of our gear, it's simple, elegant and functional whether you're enjoying summer turns or ripping it up on your next hard winter project.
