Interviewee: Martijn Linde - Jones VP of Softgood
What is the overall theme behind your 2023/24 outerwear range? From which big trends do you take your inspiration?
A lot of new people entered the sport in the past few seasons and they are figuring out how to dress better. It doesn’t take long to realize that lighter gear allows you to go further and faster and if you choose the correct layering, with more comfort. For 23/24 we really focused on building products that work well in a system for light and fast touring missions. At the same time, we really focused our insulation offering to fit well within those systems.
What new fits / silhouettes are coming out in 2023/24? What pant and jacket styles are most important in your range?
The Dark Start Recycled Hoodie adds active, synthetic insulation to our product line. Our most breathable insulator at 20CFM, the Dark Start is a packable stretch hooded jacket made with 100% recycled ripstop material and a 100% recycled airflake insulation.
What new colours / prints are you introducing?
We added a timeless Sunrise Gold to the lineup, and recolored a great all over, mountain print by RP Roberts.
