Portsmouth, NH – Jan 16, 2018
Dare 2b’s brand ethos, “Welcome to Our Mountain,” shines through in the newly launched AW18 line. The line is brim-filled with exclusive technology that thrives on-mountain without maxing out the credit card. Cooked in is Dare 2b’s body mapping technology, AEP Kinematics, which allows for unrestricted movement on the slopes. The self-regulating powers of EndoThermic Performance (ETP) insulation keep day-trippers and full-time shredders protected even when the thermometer reads: “What’s wrong with you?”
Refuse to blend in with bold colorways and striking contours styled into each piece. Textured trimming and four-way stretch oxford polyester fabrics offer technical, stylish looks primed to inspire the winter warrior within, without the heavy price tag.
