After 2009’s exceptional growth, today GoLite reported sales for 2010 were up another 27% annually. GoLite credits this to the continued improvement in its product offering, the successful launch of its adventure travel apparel & equipment collection and a brand story of â€œdoing more with lessâ€ that is resonating with consumers globally. A significant increase in its dealer base and growth in direct to consumer revenue also contributed to a strong 2010. â€œInvestments we made in product development and other operational strategies the past several years are really paying off,â€ said Demetri Coupounas, GoLite President. â€œWe are very optimistic about 2011 and look forward to bringing to market several more â€˜home-run’ outdoor and travel products that will continue to set us apart from the competition.â€
Fall 2011 New Product Highlights
GoLite is introducing several new high performance outerwear pieces to the Fall Collection including the Ashdown Pro Shell Jacket â€“ a premium Gore-TexÂ® jacket for all weather conditions and the lightweight, breathable and waterproof Currant Mountain Paclite Jacket. Sure to be a big hit is the new Bitterroot 850 Fill Down Jacket featuring the very light Pertex Quantum GL fabric. The hooded Bitterroot weighs less than Â¾’s of a pound (370 g) making it GoLite’s lightest down jacket.
Over two-thirds of GoLite products contain recycled or other eco-friendly materials. The new Cady Synthetic Insulated Jackets and Vests feature cool retro styling and are made with 100% recycled fabrics. Also made with recycled fabrics are the Granite Creek Trinity Bonded Softshell Jackets featuring street-ready styling with technical fabrication.
Capitalizing on the successful adventure travel category, new travel introductions for fall include multi-functional outerwear pieces as well as several sophisticated and flattering men’s and women’s tops perfectly suited for travel and every day.
