â€œ This is our largest and most comprehensive collection to date,â€ said Poppy Gall, VP Merchandising and co-founder of ISIS. â€œWe are proud to continue to offer active outdoor women fashionable, performance-oriented apparel that works for all of their needs, from hiking to the summit to catch first tracks in raging snow, to lounging comfortably at home with wicking base layers, to dressing up for a dinner out in our boiled wool sweaters. ISIS continues to bring fit, color and style to all aspects of cold weather apparel and we feel confident that women will see that we are committed to their quest for perfect active clothing as well as to the greater community.â€
