We paid attention to our tailoring and seams in order to achieve cuts that are optimized for shredding. Snowboarding involves lots of moving and twisting. Badly cut jackets get left behind, becoming tangled and riding up. Now you can tweak that method all the way without having to sort your jacket out on the ride out. Don’t get robbed of your afterbang with Bataleon outerwear.
We are using SMART PLEATS to give or jackets and pants a little extra room in all the places you need to bend most. That is why you will find SMART PLEATS in the elbow, new armpits and hood on most of our jackets and pants. The pleats store a little extra fabric. When you are bending, tweaking or stretching the fabric folds making it feel as if your jacket isn't there.
BATPITS are pleats in the underarm.When your arms are lowered, the BATPITS are folded away, when you raise your arms, for example when tweaking a method, the pleats open, stretching the underarm region and allowing you to push that tweak all the way out without lifting the hem of the jacket. Now you no longer need to fix your jacket on the ride out. Keep your afterbang with BATPITS!
We widened the hood so that it comfortably covers a helmet, but we also widened the collar, giving the hood the ability to turn with your head and helmet without garroting you. Now you can finally ride in a helmet without looking like an idiot! Of course the hood is fully adjustable and so can be easily fitted to an un-helmeted head using the drawstrings.
Every rider knows how much it sucks when your vent zips get stuck open on a cold windy chairlift. So we fixed that. Our zips work every time, don’t get stuck and can even be operated one handed. Get us!
Control your pants with elastic cords that run from the inside of the cargo pockets down to the hems at the bottom of each leg. Simply reach inside the cargo pocket and pull on the cord to draw the hem towards the pocket. The cord can then be locked using the clip. This means no more dirty ripped up hems and no more bending down to turn your trousers up.
