Richmond, Calif. (Jan 11, 2017) – Mountain Hardwear, Inc., an outdoor industry leader in product innovation, is pleased to debut new insulated styles for Fall 2017. Building on the success of the 2016’s StretchDown Jackets, Mountain Hardwear is expanding the line with two new insulated styles, the StretchDown DS and the StretchDown HD.

 “The evolution of StretchDown pushes what can be done with welded baffles. We have worked with our materials and supplier partners on new welding technology to help increase mobility, and comfort. This new process decreases the baffle width to allow for maximum versatility and help decrease weight in the entire program. Our new welding technology actually improves on the already amazingly strong baffle strength,” said Steve Adams, senior product line manager for outwear. “The StretchDown DS has evolved in terms of mobility and packability with the new discontinuous baffle construction, really focusing on an active end use. And the StretchDown HD is an amazing hybrid of both our Q-Shield® Down and Thermal Q™ Insulation allowing for a perfect shoulder season insulated jacket.”

StretchDown DS

STRETCHDOWN™ DS HOODED JACKET

MSRP $340

The irreverent cousin of our instant classic StretchDown™ Jacket. The DS breaks free of the grid pattern with standout style and discontinuous lines. The warm, light, incredibly stretchy knit fabric is vastly more comfortable than conventional down jackets. Groundbreaking stretch-welded channel construction traps more warmth than standard stitching.

STRETCHDOWN™ HD JACKET

MSRP $250

Tough, stylish, advanced, and comfortable as hell. This jacket has synthetic insulation where you want it, and StretchDown™ where you need it. Built to be crucial in the mountains, the city, or wherever you get up to serious fun. Groundbreaking stretch-welded channel construction traps more warmth than standard stitching.

PACKDOWN™ JACKET

MSRP $225

Go ahead and donate your old everyday jacket. With sweet snaps and reflective trim, this is the smart new standard for throw on and go. 650-fill Q.Shield. DOWN resists heat-robbing moisture and retains maximum loft even when wet. Featuring snap closure hand-warmer pockets, two easy-access interior drop pockets and a zippered interior pocket, the PackDown Jacket packs down small and stows in a pocket.
