ANCHORAGE, AK – SKHOOP, the original insulated skirt company, is proud to introduce its redesigned website http://www.skhoop.us/ featuring the new fall/winter 2016 collection of insulated skirts, jackets and accessories for women and girls. With an emphasis on staying warmer for longer outdoors, the new SKHOOP line is feminine and functional, designed by women for women, to be worn for every outdoor activity imaginable: from walking the dog to snowshoeing a trail to riding a bike.
SKHOOP has come a long way since founder Sissi Kewenter designed the Original Skirt in Åre, Sweden, in 1999. Women loved the practical concept of the insulated skirt and SKHOOP quickly became a trendsetter in women’s outdoor apparel. The line has evolved over the years with the addition of various length skirts using different fabrics and insulation, technical and lifestyle jackets and vests, socks and other accessories, and their products are now sold in both Europe and North America.
The 2016 collection marks a few firsts for SKHOOP, including the industry’s first ever skirt made with GORE® (Supreme GORE® THERMIUM™ Skirt), the company’s first Stretch Fleece mid-layer collection, and the company’s first mini sock that compliments their popular knee socks. The redesigned website will also include the new “SKHOOP Outdoors” page, which will feature a monthly outing by the SKHOOP girls that highlights three pieces of gear that worked seamlessly with the selected activity, including one SKHOOP product and two products from other complimentary brands. In addition, SKHOOP athletes will be highlighted on the new page, featuring photos and anecdotes of their favorite SKHOOP pieces. Visit the new SKHOOP website at http://www.skhoop.us/.
