For the Seekers – La Sportiva Launches Limited Mountainwear Capsule with Alpinetech

December 20, 2022

BOULDER, CO (DEC 20, 2022) - La Sportiva, makers of the world’s finest mountain gear, today announces its exclusive new apparel capsule, Alpinetech. Available in North America for fall 2023, this elite collection was developed in collaboration with Richi Bolt, a renowned mountain guide with 20 years of experience in the field. These limited items revolutionize mountain apparel, combining Swiss precision with Italian passion to create the most advanced mountain apparel available.

“With Alpinetech, our global team collaborated with Swiss colleague Richi Bolt to craft a collection of performance mountain apparel that is unmatched in the market,” says Jonathan Lantz, President of La Sportiva North America. “This line is made for those who demand more from their gear. If you’re looking for a jacket to stroll around town in, Alpinetech isn’t for you. This collection is for the athletes and explorers who dare to push boundaries and venture into the unknown. It’s made for those who don’t take no for an answer.”

Alpine environments can be treacherous, with severe weather conditions threatening the very lives of those who dare to enter these spaces in the winter months. La Sportiva designed the Supercouloir GTX Pro Jacket to keep mountain athletes protected from the harshness of these intense situations. With a 28,000-waterproof rating, this innovative hardshell is composed of a unique mix of premium materials that weave together to create an offering that features unparalleled strength, durability and protection. Reinforced Superfabric® inserts are included in high-wear areas, while an adjustable helmet compatible hood provides exceptional protection from the elements. Available for men and women, the Supercouloir GTX Pro Jacket retails for $699.

Made from recycled fabrics and insulation, the Dolent Down Jacket is one of the standout pieces in the Alpinetech capsule. This $349 midweight insulated piece uses 750 Fill Power PURE Recycled Goose Down and strategically placed Primaloft Active Evo insulation to provide protection in the worst conditions. The combination of down and synthetic insulation allows this piece to maintain warmth even when wet, making it the ideal companion for excursions into cold and damp environments.

The $199 Cambrenas Hybrid 2.0 Jacket for men and women is a versatile, lightweight top with body-mapped insulation designed for active pursuits in the winter months. This technical 11.6 oz jacket combines Primaloft Silver, high-loft fleece, and wind-resistant Vapovent material to create the ideal piece for adventurous outings in the mountains.

La Sportiva’s latest baselayer line represents a new generation of seamless Native Technology. These exciting new fabrics are composed of a technical mix of yarns that provide unparalleled warmth, breathability, and comfort. Every piece has exceptional elasticity, allowing for unbridled freedom of movement. Sliver threads eliminate odor-causing bacteria, while the precise integration of quality materials creates a fabric that dries incredibly fast.

A highlight of this line is the Silk reflect T-Shirt, a luxurious top that utilizes cutting-edge body mapping 3D weaving technology for optimal heat and perspiration management. Silk Yarn and Bio-Ceramic materials allow this $139 piece to maintain durability while staying extremely light. This premium baselayer is hypoallergenic, antistatic, and antibacterial.

Featuring Knit_Tech fabric that optimizes breathability and freedom of movement, the Wool40 Aero Long Sleeve and Pants are designed for technical performance and aerobic activities. These highly functional pieces use recycled fabrics and offer a fantastic anatomical fit that provides all-day comfort. The Long Sleeve retails for $59, while the Pants retail for $55.

The new Alpinetech collection will be available at select specialty retailers and at www.lasportivausa.com in the fall of 2023. Select samples for media will be available prior to the release of the line. Contact La Sportiva PR representative Sean Van Horn at sean.vanhorn@backbone.media for more information.
