FORLOH Introduces Groundbreaking American Made Down Expedition Series
January 5, 2023
Built for Most Inhospitable Corners of the Earth: Fully Seam-Sealed 3L Waterproof Outerwear Insulated with First Ever 800+ Fill USA Down
WHITEFISH, Mont. – January 5, 2023 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – FORLOH (https://forloh.com), the 100 percent made-in-America technical outdoor brand, today introduces the Expedition Series, a collection of 3-layer, fully seam-sealed and waterproof garments with the first-ever 800+ fill USA down, setting a new standard for extreme weather technical apparel. FORLOH introduces the Expedition Series with a Men’s Jacket and Women’s Parka.
Built for extreme cold and the most inhabitable corners of the Earth, the Expedition series was first conceived during a visit to Greenland where FORLOH supports weather stations conducting critical climate science. The extreme weather, including rapidly changing levels of precipitation and intense cold, led the FORLOH team on a mission to design the ultimate waterproof down apparel.
“Our goal was to meet the need for our Greenland climate science missions, and we’ve gone above and beyond with the Expedition series, creating the highest warmth-to-weight ratio of any USA down on the market today,” said FORLOH founder and CEO, Andy Techmanski. “True to the FORLOH philosophy of no concessions, the Expedition features a world-first in the 800+ fill power USA pure white down. This didn’t exist, so we challenged the Downlite Outdoor team and they delivered, creating a new process to make it happen. The Expedition is extreme enough for Everest, but comfortable enough for a winter stroll in Chicago.”
Every aspect of the Expedition series is crafted to maximize warmth, comfort, and temperature regulation. The lining is engineered with each baffle strategically weighted based on location and corresponding warmth needs of the organs in our body. The collection also features the first-of-its-kind responsibly harvested 800+ fill 90/10 power USA down, a major breakthrough in down technology developed in partnership between FORLOH and Downlite Outdoor. The 3-layer shell is fully seam-sealed, waterproof, breathable and lightweight, and built to maximize durability.
The Expedition Series is 100% made and sourced in the USA and comes with a lifetime warranty and satisfaction guarantee.
The new Expedition jacket and parka are available at https://forloh.com and in FORLOH’s Whitefish, Mont. and Austin, Tex. retail locations. Colorways include Fiery Red/Magnet interior; Snowfall/Snowfall interior; Magnet/Snowfall interior; Black/Black interior.
