The Strafe Polartec Apex Award Designer Series video, to be released December 15, provides a closer look at the Cham Jacket and Pant as winners of the 2014 Polartec Apex Design Award, which recognizes the finest Polartec-based products available to consumers each year based on style, function, workmanship, and overall design of garments with the most innovative and appropriate uses of Polartec fabrics.

The Winter 2015 Strafe collection, now available, features the following products developed in close collaboration with Polartec:

Made of Polartec NeoShell, the most breathable waterproof fabric on the market, the Cham Jacket and Cham Pant is the lightest Polartec NeoShell kit on the market, providing a unique combination of waterproof protection and high breathability for everything from lift laps to the biggest human-powered days.

Made of 100g Polartec Alpha, the first-ever breathable puffy insulation developed for U.S. Special Operations Forces, the Gamma Ray Jacket provides the lightweight, packable warmth and weather resistance of a traditional puffy, with the breathability of a midlayer.

Made of Polartec® Power Dry® High Efficiency™, the original grid fleece, the Base Camp Hoody is a versatile midlayer that provides best-in-class warmth without weight and quick-drying breathable performance across a wide range of activities and conditions.

Made of Polartec® Power Dry® with wool entirely in the USA, the Tech Crew, a clean crewneck, and the Storm Trooper 5 Panel, a classic camp cap style hat, feature a casual aesthetic with quick-drying, breathable performance to work across all aspects of modern life.
