Outside Magazine has awarded our new Neoteric Shell with the coveted 2014 Gear of the Year Award. Featured in their winter Buyer’s Guide (on newsstands beginning September 23), one of Outside’s gear testers was impressed with not only how our team used Polartec’s NeoShell fabric but also the jacket’s supercharger feature set, “making the Neoteric the best combination of price, fit, features, and performance of this year’s crop.”
Building premium gear designed to inspire and enable outdoor adventure is what motivates our team at Eddie Bauer, and garnering this prestigious award from Outside Magazine further propels us to continue building such innovative products. When we launched First Ascent in 2009, perfection through minimalism was our guide team’s goal from day one. And at every stage of product development, we integrate the elements that our guides input, from function and features to the precise location of every stitch and seam, until every product passes their ultimate test.
The creation of the Neoteric Shell was no exception. Our product team spent more than a year developing this award-winner with our skiers and riders who put it to the test in some of the harshest ranges: the Cascades, Andes, Monashees and Alaska to ensure it was perfection. Using cutting-edge, three-layer Polartec® NeoShell® fabric, the Neoteric Shell is not only waterproof and windproof, it allows a constant two-way flow of air, ensuring an unprecedented level of breathability while active that hasn’t been possible with traditional hard shell technology. And the jacket’s feature set equips you for everything from lift-access sidecountry to deep powder heli runs.
But don’t just take our word for it. Check out Outside’s winter Buyer’s Guide to read what they had to say or try putting the Neoteric Shell through the paces yourself.
