Mountain Hardwear to Debut StretchDown at Outdoor Retailer

MHW’s Fall 2016 outerwear collection features insulation that is designed to move

Richmond, Calif. (Jan. 4, 2016)Mountain Hardwear, creator of performance apparel and equipment that empowers outdoor athletes to live boldly, is pleased to announce a leap forward in flexible insulation with the debut of the StretchDownJacket (MSRP $250) and the StretchDownRS Jacket (MSRP $280) for Fall/Winter 2016. 


The first down jacket designed to move the way we move, the StretchDown Jacket uses a stretch knit material and welded seams that expand, unlike traditional stitched baffles. This unique combination makes for a more durable, form-fitting, comfortable jacket. Utilizing Mountain Hardwear’s high preforming and waterproof 750-fill Q.Shield® Down, the StretchDown Jacket is ready for winter weather and any mountain activity.

The StretchDown RS is where flexibility meets protection from the elements. With a weather-resistant 15D Ghost Lite face fabric, welded channel construction and a stretch knit lining, the StretchDown RS offers both optimal warmth and mobility.

“We’re thrilled to take premium insulation to the next level,” said Steve Adams, Mountain Hardwear’s outerwear product line manager. “The groundbreaking StretchDown technology is a testament to Mountain Hardwear’s commitment to continuously progress innovation and technology, while keeping comfort and end use top of mind.”

The StretchDown and StretchDown RS jackets will be unveiled at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City, Utah January 7-10, 2016.
