Northstar Gear Guide | Winter 2015-16

As you prepare for your trip, we know you’re on the hunt for the best gear to make sure you look and feel good in any weather. That’s why we’ve put together this custom guide, featuring gear that will give you the best possible experience at Northstar. Read on to learn the ins and outs of each piece and find out what’s right for you.


Since 1877, Helly Hansen has been on the forefront of innovative products. Helly Hansen worked to develop what we know today as the 3-Layer System™. The 3-Layer System™ calls for wearing a base-layer, mid-layer, and outer-layer to provide the best possible for protection from the elements.


Base Layer | Active Flow LS

The first layer is your base-layer. Lifa Flow delivers super quick drying next to skin and guarantees that you’ll always feel dry and comfortable. The HH Active Flow LS is an advanced construction combining Lifa® Stay Dry Technology and fast wicking fibers, making it ideal as an all year activity base layer. In addition, this shirt is constructed with a relaxed fit, making it just as great to wear as a casual piece.
Mid-Layer | Daybreaker Fleece

The second layer is your mid-layer. Fleece is a standard mid-layer, appreciated for its warmth and comfort. The Daybreaker Fleece is a versatile jacket perfect for keeping warm on chilly autumn nights, as a light mid layer in spring and summer or paired with some classic Helly Hansen base layers in winter. Its warm, breathable and comfortable fleece stretch material construction is a year-round companion for any skier.
Outerwear | Backbowl Jacket

The final layer is your outerwear. The outerwear is designed to protect you from the weather. It will protect your from the wind and snow but also allows for heat and moisture to escape allowing your skin to stay warm and dry. The new Backbowl Jacket features clean Scandinavian design in a longer, relaxed fit style. Built for deep freeride days on big mountains in severe conditions, this highly-breathable, waterproof, PrimaLoft® insulated ski jacket keeps you covered while you pioneer new lines. Hi-viz details and brim make sure your friends find you in the deep. Our Helly Tech® Professional 2-ply fabric with new FLOW membrane, enabling unparalleled breathability, is used in combination with the innovative H²FLOW system, dramatically improving temperature regulation.
 


GoPro helps people capture and share their lives’ most meaningful experiences with others—to celebrate them together.

The world’s most versatile cameras are what we make.

The SmartWool story started on a rugged Colorado ski slope with the belief that toes didn’t have to be cold. One simple pair of Merino socks challenged the conventional wisdom and forever changed the way outdoor enthusiasts looked at their feet. It’s not just about the Merino, though. It’s what we do with it that makes SmartWool different. For over 20 years, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of Merino to create smarter, more capable products from head to toe.
