New Kids On The Block Awarded POLARTEC® APEX DESIGN Award
Innovative seamless TRUE CONTROLâ„¢ iPod connectivity in iRebel Hoody/Jacket recognized for innovative design and development

May 30th, 2006 – Burnaby, BC – Westcomb Outerwear Ltd, premier purveyors of user-inspired technical outdoor apparel, is the proud recipient of the 2006 Polartec® Apex Design Award for the iRebel Hoody/Jacket. This “Made for iPod” iRebel Hoody/Jacket is the first Polartec® product developed bringing the world of the outdoor and music together. The Westcomb design and development team created the soft-switch TRUE CONTROL™ that was seamlessly integrated into one of our most successful products, the Rebel Hoody/Jacket, allowing users to connect and experience.

Launched at Outdoor Retailer Winter 2006, the iRebel Hoody/Jacket caused a media buzz which ultimately led to a nomination for the prestigious Polartec® Apex Design Award.

“One day electronic textiles will probably do everything from changing colours to charging your cell phone. But in the meantime, the Westcomb iRebel Hoody/Jacket is “rocking” the boat with integrated soft switch technology that seamlessly allows you to control your iPod through soft buttons built into the sleeves”. Quoted from the Polartec® website.

The iRebel Hoody/Jacket is a technical Polartec® WindPro® layer that provides superb wind protection and thermal insulation. Cut in a comfy athletic fit, the iRebel is a progressive piece that offers great mobility without sacrificing performance. Patented Polartec® Hardface® Technology enhances durability and abrasion resistance. The iRebel features two large hand warmer pockets, two laminated chest pockets, reflective logos, and integrated thumb loops.

The iRebel Hoody/Jacket is available in Fall 2006 through preferred specialty dealers listed on our website at www.westcomb.com. Suggested retail prices are US$215/CAD$275 (Jacket) US$225/CAD$295 (Hoody).
