2023 Line Combines Thoughtful Design with Premium Materials
Bozeman, MT (January 26, 2023)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Stone Glacier, a leading manufacturer of premium outdoor equipment, today announced multiple new pieces to its outerwear and apparel line. Building upon its rapid success within the category, the brand is proud to introduce its Cirque LITE Jacket, Cirque Vest, Grumman LITE Down Jacket, Zenith Fleece Hoody, 206 Pant, and Helio Zip-Off Bottom.
The Cirque LITE Jacket features PrimaLoft® Gold synthetic insulation to create a warm, breathable, and versatile garment. A body-mapped, 15 denier Pertex® Quantum face fabric allows the insulation to fully loft, while also providing a quiet and weather resistant layer in a lightweight construction. Microgrid fleece side panels are treated with Polygiene odor control to reduce scent and purge sweat. The Cirque LITE has an articulated and adjustable hood to protect you from the elements while maintaining exceptional field of view. An adjustable waist and elastic wrist cuffs ensure a proper, comfortable fit while in the field. The Cirque LITE jacket ($239) is available in Stone Gray, as well as Tarmac color options.
“Stone Glacier has always implemented purpose-driven design, rigorous in-field testing, and genuine care,” said Jeff Sposito, President at Stone Glacier. “Like each of our products, our apparel line features the most premium materials available to maximize durability and functionality, while emphasizing comfort under heavy use. We’re proud to provide versatile apparel to be used from the depths of the backcountry to the comforts of your backyard.”
The new Cirque Vest employs Stone Glacier’s trusted Pertex Quantum face fabric to maximize durability in a quiet, breathable insulator. The brand utilizes PrimaLoft Gold synthetic insulation to provide warmth without bulk, as well as exceptional freedom of movement. An adjustable articulated hood provides warmth and protection from the elements, while two external hand pockets and two internal pockets allow for multiple storage options, no matter your activity. The Cirque Vest ($199) is available in Granite Grey, as well as Muskeg color options.
The Grumman LITE Down Jacket boasts 3.1 oz of Stone Glacier’s proven 850+ fill HyperDry™ DWR-treated goose down insulation. The ultralight jacket weighs in at just 11 oz. (size large), making for a premium option for early season activity in the backcountry. Per Stone Glacier’s standard, the Grumman LITE is constructed with a 15 Denier weather resistant Pertex Quantum shell to remain quiet, windproof, and lightweight. The versatile down jacket optimizes hearing and vision through a minimal, low-volume hood design, and an included stuff sack makes this piece extremely packable. The Grumman LITE Down Jacket ($299) is available in Fern, as well as Muskeg.
The Zenith Fleece Hoody provides versatile, all-day comfort through a 100% polyester high-loft fleece construction. Raglan sleeves create a seam-free fit, while strategically placed hand pockets offer exceptional functionality while wearing a pack. A zippered wind flap retains body heat, making this garment an essential at camp. The Zenith Fleece Hoody ($159) is available in Stone Grey, as well as Muskeg.
The 206 Pant provides a new streamlined, tapered fit to minimize noise from fabric friction. A lightweight 88% nylon, 12% spandex 4-way stretch fabric blend ensures mobility, and inner thigh zips allow users to ventilate appropriately while on the move. A customized fit is accomplished through Stone Glacier’s patented Contour Waist™ System, which allows up to three inches of waist adjustment. Each pair of 206 pants are coated with durable water repellent treatment to better withstand inclement weather. The 206 Pant ($169) is available in Stone Glacier’s Sandstone color.
The Helio Zip-Off Bottom is constructed with full-leg zips, and a Velcro waist closure that allows users to easily and quickly remove or add the layer while you’re in the field. The zippers are strategically placed front-forward to remove potential hot spots under pants or a pack. The cold weather Helio Zip-Off Bottom uses a breathable microgrid fleece fabric, as well as Stone Glacier’s Stratum™ Layered Zipper System—allowing for instant ventilation from skin to shell. The active base layer is Polygiene treated to control odor in the backcountry. The Helio Zip-Off Bottom ($109) is available in Granite Grey, as well as Fern.
